How to make a Christmas gingerbread houses with cardboard
🏠 The first step is to cut out the shape of the cardboard. Houses with different shapes of roofs and different heights look great. Then cut out windows and doors.
🏠 Now the real fun begins, i.e. decorating the houses with white markers. The more white ornaments and patterns, the better. Houses look best when they are speckled in white 😀 These can be roof tiles, bricks, Christmas garlands and wreaths, snowmen and Christmas trees by the door and window decorations.
🏠 The last step is to add some decorations from stickers and self-adhesive crystals.

Nothing gives more satisfaction than doing something yourself. I haven’t even thought about DIY as my hobby, I’ve just done different “projects” when it was needed. Sometimes it’s a disguise for the Masquerade Party in kindergarten. Another time, cutting out the pumpkin and baking the witch’s fingers for Haloween. Or simply organizing holiday souvenirs. Now I decided to share my realizations with you. Let’s go it together!
