Paper Bag Gingerbread House
Skip the mess of a traditional gingerbread house & try a brown paper bag version instead! It’s sure to be just as sweet BUT less messy!
- Large Brown Paper Bags
- White Puffy Paint
- Loose Craft Sequins
- School Glue
- Shredded Paper or Old Newspapers
- First fill your brown paper bag with a little bit of shredded paper on the bottom. This will help your piece stand up tall and have some weight to it.
- Next fold down your paper bag to close and staple it to create a roof.
- Now you are ready for the fun part – the embellishments! Grab your puffy paint and add “icing” on the paper bag to really give the look of a gingerbread house.
- Top off with some sequins and any other embellishments you see fit.
- Then set it ALL aside to let it dry completely before displaying proudly! Remember – this is also a clever way to “snaz” up gifts you may be handing out this year too!!!
- Don’t forget to share pictures of your paper bag gingerbread house creations with us on your social media sites! #gluedtomycrafts
