I recently had the pleasure of taking two of my kids to A Hill Country Holiday at the Westin La Cantera. We had a blast ice skating (in shorts!), making toys, decorating cookies, and catching a live theater show. It was an unforgettable day; one that we’ll repeat again soon!
My kids had a blast decorating gingerbread men cookies, and wanted to do it again at home. Since they didn’t even eat their original cookies, I decided to make an inedible version that we could treasure for a long time.
To make your own Gingerbread Family Ornaments:
Step 1: Cut your gingerbread person out of cardboard.
Step 2: Cover it with DecoArt’s Fine Paintable Texture and let dry.
Step 3: Paint it brown.
Step 4: Use DecoArt’s Snow Writer to outline the “cookie”.
Step 5: Let your kids use paint writers (we used DecoArt’s paint writers and the fine tip allowed the kids to create lots of details.
Step 6: Glue a ribbon on the back to hang the ornaments.
Looks like you had a blast, I wish I could have gone 🙁
New folllower from the Hop. Hope you will head over and follow us back!
Great to meet you!
