Art It Up! - Gingerbread Houses

8 comments
Art It Up! is a weekly feature hosted by Tabitha @ Not Yet Read.

The final stretch of the Christmas rush is upon us. I'm still scrambling to meet my Goodreads challenge, so I haven't done much art. However, I met up with some friends the other night to make gingerbread houses.

We bought kits and figured it would be an easy, relaxing activity. It was actually kind of stressful and difficult. Well, for two of us. The girl who makes at least one every year zoomed through hers while we were struggling to get the pieces to stick together. ^^;




But we managed to wind up with three upright gingerbread houses. Which are going to take forever to eat. That's a lot of gingerbread.

Thanks for stopping by, and check back tomorrow for this week's discussion post! In which I talk about Mrs. Bennet. :)

  1. I've never made a gingerbread house. Was it fun even if it was difficult? I love the roof on the one in the middle.

    1. Yes, it was definitely still a fun experience, Silvara. And it got easier as we went. I think the roof in the middle was from our gingerbread house pro. :)

  2. Cute! I wanted to do a gingerbread house this year, but even with the kit it seemed overwhelming. And then I would just end up throwing it away. I much rather look at your cute houses!

    1. Haha, that's not a bad way to go, Alyssa- especially if you don't think it would get eaten. (I'm still nibbling away at mine. It's a TON of gingerbread.)

  3. Are those things even edible!? I never thought the ones that came as kits were meant for eating lol. Sorry it was so stressful instead of fun. :-P

    1. Yep, edible and fairly tasty, so long as you don't sit admiring them for a couple of weeks and then try to eat it. ;)

      It was fun catching up with friends, even if most of our conversation consisted of, "Stick, little gumdrop, stick I say!"

  4. Awesome! I've never made one before, but they look fun to do. And I don't know if I would eat it, which somewhat defeats the purpose, right?

    1. Despite the stress, it was still fun. And not necessarily. You could always take it to a Christmas party or a family gathering and conveniently "forget" it when you leave, sticking someone else with the leftovers. :)
