Gingerbread House

Gingerbread House

Product Review (submitted on February 14, 2013):

I made this last fall and really enjoyed the process. I had to take some books out of the library to brush up on basic Crochet, since I hadn't done it in years. This project doesn't require difficult stitches, just consistent work. The various crocheted pieces are hot glued together. The house sides are used to trace the house shape on cardboard box pieces. This cardboard is taped together and then the 'gingerbread pieces are glued on. Crocheted gum drops and peppermint sticks hide all the seems. The crocheted icing and icicles were fun to make. The hardest part was the hot glue gun. Everyone who saw my house loved it and was very impressed. A great project. !!
