I’m sharing my unique take on a gingerbread tree, adorned with pink candy, a roof made of Chex cereal, and fresh rosemary for a whimsical touch.
Lately, it’s been a whirlwind of projects for me. Thankfully, my recent crafting session with Leslie from My 100 Year Old Home was a lifesaver. We both managed to get a head start on our holiday projects during this little retreat.
I’m thrilled about the series of blog posts I’m preparing to launch over the next few weeks.
But today, let’s talk about some fantastic gingerbread house concepts, ranging from classic designs to more unconventional and creative styles.
I’m excited to share this DIY project with you, which is part of a blog hop that my talented friends and I have collaborated on. You’re in for a treat because their beautiful creations are truly impressive!

Instructions to Create A Pink Gingerbread House
Step 1 – Construct Your House
This is always the tricky part of making gingerbread houses. Take your time on each step and allow the icing to dry and harden before moving to the next step. If you aren’t going to eat it and aren’t a purest, you can use hot glue to put the house together.
Step 2 – Add Roof
I focused on crafting the roof, first spreading it with icing before carefully arranging the Chex mix to resemble shingles. Starting from the bottom, I worked my way up, layering each new row slightly over the one beneath it just like a real roof.
Step 3 – Attach the Shingles
I used a candy that had a layer of sugar on it, so it had a difficult time attaching to the gingerbread house. If you want the pink look, I would use pink gum.
Step 4 – Add Rosemary and Icing
I did a layer of icing along the roof’s edges and then placed fresh rosemary inside the edge.
And that’s it. I didn’t get too fancy with my house this year. But, I love how it turned out.
Over the past few years, I created quite a few gingerbread houses. Here are a few of them and I’m also including my friends as well.
This year, gingerbread houses have become a major trend. It seems like Pottery Barn really set the tone for the season with their extensive range of gingerbread-themed items!
Let’s take a look at these fun holiday projects!
