Gingerbread House Ornament

Did you love the story of The Gingerbread man as a child? I did. I loved how cheeky the Ginger Bread Man was. He was quite a rebel but then the sneaky fox got him in the end.

Today we have some amazing Gingerbread House Ornaments to share. They are super cute and fun to make as a Christmas decoration. They are brilliant craft idea to do with the kids.

In fact these were made last year but I ran out of time to share them. Do enjoy.
