Gingerbread Log Cabin 2017: Front
This year I wanted to attempt a Log Cabin.
I took a basic house pattern, added the ledge in front and Chimney.
I used Rod Pretzels. There are tricky as the pretzels aren't straight. They curve a little.
The fire-pit is pretzels and spice drops. Bench in front of fire-pit is gingerbread.
The trees are ice cream cones. I melted green "Candy Melts" (from Michaels) and put green dyed rice krispies. ( to die. put water and green food color in a spray bottle. Spritz the rice krispies, mix, spritz, mix. Don't over spritz or their get soggy.
Roof is rice chex cereal
I found the blue car at toys-r-us. (it's my car) and put a fake christmas tree (Michaels) on top.
Fence is pretzels sticks.
Fireplace are Honey-ed Pecon's and Walnuts from Target.
Michaels was having a sale on their Halloween items, so I picked up a pack of 50 string orange lights.
I cut a whole next to the chimney to put the lights through.
It was fun!!
Thank you for looking!
