A Lovely Faux Gingerbread House DIY

You don’t want to go to all that mess and trouble building a gingerbread house?  I don’t blame you.  I like this DIY project that uses art materials rather than food.  It will also be a lot less frustrating which is a huge deal in my house.  Your options for decorating are endless!  Spray on some canned snow when you are finished to complete the winter look.  Thanks to Inside the Fox Den for the fun idea.

Hi friends,

Have you checked out the #MerryBlogmas link parties yet? There’s some awesome creativity happening over there! To celebrate Blogmas in my own way, and continue with my Holiday Hootenanny, I’ve decided to post once a day leading up to Christmas! This week’s party is all about decor so get ready for some awesome Christmas decor posts headed your way!

Last year was my first Christmas in my new home and I worked on transitioning my decorations to match the color scheme. My old Christmas colors were a traditional red, white, and silver, but my new colors are, what I like to refer as, “Candy Coated”. Think the land of the Sugar Plum Fairy from the Nutcracker; lots of pastels.

I love gingerbread houses as part of anyone’s Christmas decor, but I hate how they’re only good for one season. Sure, you could purchase a faux gingerbread house for a couple hundred dollars, but why not DIY it? I wanted one to match my Christmas theme and colors, so that’s exactly what I did!
