Gingerbread Garland

24 November 2012

Just wanted to stop in and share this simple craft with you today. I went AWOL decorating the casa for Christmas over here, and as I was pulling fake snow out of boxes and setting up mangers, I decided that a gingerbread garland would look cute in my kitchen.

So I went over to Lettering Delights to find myself a cute little gingerbread man. There were tons of cute ones, but I was looking for a more traditional shape, and finally stumbled across the Old World Christmas graphic set. Here is what it looks like:

I then opened up my Silhouette Studio and traced that cute gingerbread man, and was able to squeeze 6 of them on one page(4'' each):

I cut it 4 times which gave me 24 gingerbread men. The final step was figuring out how to connect them. I decided to hole-punch their hands, and thread white floss through them (because i was out of white or brown  embroidery floss, ha ha).

They ended up looking really festive I think!
