Felt Gingerbread House Ornament
Almost yummy enough to eat, this felt gingerbread house can easily be customized to your liking!
- cardboard (food packaging)
- embroidery floss
- Draw the outline of a house, including chimney onto thin cardboard. Then create templates for the accent pieces (i.e. door, roof, and windows).
- Stick the templates to the felt using rolls of tape. Cut out the shapes. Then layer them and use coordinating embroidery floss to sew each piece onto the house. NOTE: The icicles are created by stitching different lengths of floss. The doorknob is a French knot.
- If you want to use these as traditional ornaments you will need to attach a loop of ribbon to the top for hanging them. Have fun!
