Gingerbread Masterpieces

I really got into the holiday spirit yesterday… I spent the whole afternoon drinking tea and making gingerbread houses!  I did the math, and I think it had been 9 years since I last tried my hand at a gingerbread creation.  Needless to say, mine looked a little bit like the work of a 5 year old.  But it was still fun!

And it got me peeking around online at other gingerbread creations… you have to see these!

I’m not sure I have the talent or the patience to pull any of these off, but aren’t they beautiful?!

And I just couldn’t resist showing these amazing creations to you…

What a clever idea!  Get the full DIY instructions here.

What are you doing to get into the holiday spirit this year?  When was the last time you made a gingerbread house?  Anyone else tempted to try the mini ones?  Tell me about your holiday doings in the comments!

    They’re all adorable. I especially like the one with the pastel roof tiles and jellybean border. I like it when you can identify the candy elements.
