This was an embroidery project I finished a bit back. I started out making it for someone and then some part of the way through the project I started to feel a little selfish and had thoughts of keeping it for myself. But the Christmas spirit prevailed and I got myself in sorts, packaged it up and sent it on its way to my dearest sweetest friend who hopefully likes it and most certainly deserves it more than I!
And this is the gingerbread house decorated by two super cute toddler pals. They were beyond adorable making this. I was slightly worried that the project was a little old for them and that they’d be upset using the food to decorate instead of eat, but it worked out just right. I assembled the house a few hours before and set out the decorations in little trays and then put the frosting on right when we all sat down to decorate. They loved it! And they used the candy up first, so after they were done I let them have at the remaining (healthier) treats. We used dried apples, banana chips, pretzels, raisins, peanuts, chocolate rings, and hard candy.
