Blogmas Day 17 - Gingerbread Houses

Welcome to Blogmas Day 17! I started off Blogmas so well scheduling posts but since my birthday I've got a bit behind and have been posting later in the day! But for the last week, I'm going to try and get back on track and bring you some festive fun! 

I was so excited about what I had planned for today's post. I have always wanted to try making a gingerbread house! As I've not managed to find the time to make my own one, I have been swooning over the amazing creations I have found on Pinterest. I couldn't resist sharing these with you, from the smaller "simple" ones to a couple of grand mahooosive ones (I'm looking at you in the bottom left hand corner!).

I think all the people that created these are amazing for having the time and patience to finish them! I think if I had tried to make one then it wouldn't even come close to any of these but rather a big crumbly mess! Maybe I'll have a bit of a practice next year so I'll be a bit more of a pro by next Christmas!

What do you think of these houses? Have you made a gingerbread house? If you have please leave me your links or tweet me a photo!



  1. I love gingerbread houses and always had one when I grew up - mixed it up a little this year though and have a gingerbread train instead :o). Xx

  2. My mum bought me a bit of a cheat set since this year is my first year making one - I will send you a picture once it is all done! x


    1. Yes I definitely think a cheat set is the way forward! Yes please do, I'd love to see it! X

  3. Great post, I think I am going to have to make one!
