Anyone interested in doing a gingerbread house thread - Page 31

post #451 of 492

maybe one could be a broken window maybe? maybe one could have a curtain flying out the window like if it was real breezy--variations for when maybe the open window might not work?  

 

and what about just reframing them to hold the panes down?

and you could have a cat in one window and someone waving out a window, someone sitting in a window reading and a pie on the window sill cooling and a puppy trying to reach up an grab it and...a candle in another window and...a sign in another window--'day sleeper do not knock', 'sleigh for rent january through december 23rd'

 

geez, k8, turn it off already!

last one i promise--what about melting hard sugar candies like butterscotch* and jolly ranchers and making stained glass-ish replacements--then mortar them in with royal

 

butterscotch are really good for this type of application

 

done--i'm finished--so done

Those are great ideas, K8:-D

 

! But I dont' know that many of them could workarrow-10x10.png. The curtains might... Here is a photo of the (undecorated) house before all the windows lifted -so you can get a sense of how challenging it is to fix them,as I can't get in behind. There are several windows on the side too!

Thanks,

Terri

Well, here's the final result! I did some quick poured sugar windows and attached them from the outside and used your idea of curtains, K8. Good suggestion - smoke and mirrors...

An old thread that becomes relevant at this time each year.  Has anyone else made a gingerbread house?  And why do they only seem to get made at Christmas?

Because it's a fun thing to do with kids, when they're out of school?

Because it's fun to decorate with snow and icicles and snowmen, etc.?

Tradition?

All of the above?

 

Actually, I think a gingerbread house situated in the spring would be cute, all flowery with birds and butterflies.

There. Their. They're not the same.

 

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

I don't really like gingerbread so I just make things out of sugar cookie... You could try that to stretch put the ingredients?

oh great idea for the sugar cookies~~

 

and i'm shipping 'my forest' out individually to family for the holidays--was perhaps exaggerating a bit there about 'the tree farm covering a mountain'--heheheh

 

i also take little cubes of peanut butter fudge and pipe ribbon & bows on them like they are wrapped packages to put at the bottom of the trees--

 

but i've got some cool sugar cookie snowflake cutters with the additional tiny cutters that cut out the inside sections--be great for gifts too--thanks, c-grey!
