Make Your Own Gingerbread House Kit

Yesterday I shared an easy way to put together Gingerbread House Kits on Lauren’s blog Happily Mother After.  She has a great 12 Crafty Days of Christmas going on right now.  You have to check it out!!

These gingerbread house kits are quick and easy to put together.  It doesn’t get any easier than this – I promise!

All you need are the following:
1 bucket
1 container of icing
Candy (I bought 3 different kinds and split them into 2 buckets)
1 package of Graham crackers (1 of 3 from box)
All of these items were found at the Dollar Tree except the Graham crackers.

Place everything in the bucket, close the lid and have fun giving this gift to that child who already has everything.

I can’t believe I was buying those store kits when I could make my own for half the price!  These simple gingerbread house kits are easy to put together and cost less than $10 to make two.

I made one for Connor and I made one for my nephew.  I can’t wait to give them their kits this weekend and make gingerbread houses with them!   I think they are going to be a big hit!!  I plan on using the lid to the bucket as the base for their houses.

I hope you all have fun making your gingerbread houses!
