DIY Gingerbread House

Yay!! It's officially December!  I started decorating in the middle of November but I keep adding little things here and there.  I've wanted a little gingerbread house for a while now and I've been brainstorming how to put one together.  I considered building one, but than I thought, what if I used a bird house?!



I picked up this little birdhouse at Hobby Lobby for $6 (It would be even less if you used that 40% off one item coupon that you should be using every time you shop there).


Then I stained it with Minwax Early American wood stain and let it sit overnight.


Then I used white chalk to outline what I wanted my gingerbread house to look like. 



Then I used a paint pen (also at Hobby Lobby for $4) to draw on my "frosting".  That's it!   I added these little trees from the Target dollar spot.  I already had the wood stain so this project cost me about $10 and it's something that won't crumble or break apart and I can get it out every year!








I can't decide if I want to keep the little birdhouse pegs or if I want to saw them off.  What do you think?  I hope you liked my fun little DIY project for Christmas.  Thanks for stopping by!   Merry Christmas!!

  2. Normal car bumpers have rules stating the specific distances they can be from the ground up. This specified distance is considered to confirm that when two cars hit with each other at a lesser speed, their gx 470 bumpers will stroke, thus riveting the impact to stop any harm and confidently reduce the injuries. toyota tundra skid plate
