The sweet smell of spices, molasses, and icing are in the air. Wait a minute… not quite for this gingerbread project! This gingerbread wreath is made from wood, paint, glitter and a lot of Christmas spirit. It’s always fun to have the Christmas music blaring as I get creative and make each piece special – no two houses are alike on this wreath and I love that. I felt inspired by a few Pinterest posts where they used cardboard, cut the cardboard into gingerbread houses and painted the icing on. I decided to take it a step further and make the base a little more durable with ¼ inch plywood.
The wreath is available on Etsy now! Click on the link for additional details – Gingerbread Wreath
Have some fun with making gingerbread yourself! If you are comfortable cutting out wood, cut out a few houses and paint them. If not, grab some cardboard from the many (MANY) delivery boxes this holiday season and paint those. Have fun creating this holiday season!
