Gingerbread Houses and Beyond: Christmas Candy and Cookie Construction Projects

Made-from-scratch gingerbread house that's good enough to eatIf you can bake cookies, then you can make a gingerbread house.

Seriously, ditch the freaky store-bought gingerbread house kit this year, with that thick cardboard-textured gingerbread and the whopping five pieces of candy that it comes with.

As you’ll see in the projects below, baking a gingerbread house is as simple as baking cut-out cookies, and much more fun to decorate than a store-bought kit.

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.

Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life; my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties; and my for links to articles about poverty, educational politics, and this famous cat who lives in my neighborhood.
