Gingerbread Houses and Beyond: Christmas Candy and Cookie Construction Projects

Candy HouseMaybe you just want to skip all of that building-a-house business altogether.

You can do that.

Mama of 9(1) tells how to build a cardboard box candy house. Yep, instead of baking a batch of gingerbread, or carefully mortaring sugar cubes together piece by piece, all you really have to do is throw a couple of cardboard boxes together, ice them, and then add the candy.

Talk about getting straight to the good stuff!

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, and my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties.
