Here's how to create a Craft Stick Gingerbread House in 30 Minutes:
To begin the Dollar Tree Christmas Craft Stick Gingerbread House, gather all supplies. To create the Gingerbread House, line up seven jumbo craft sticks on your work surface. Using scissors, trim additional jumbo craft sticks to the width of the House and attach them with a glue gun and glue sticks. Create a roof by gluing two jumbo craft sticks in a triangle pattern on the top of the Gingerbread House.
Lay four jumbo craft sticks horizontally on the gable end of the roof, trace the edge of the roof with a pencil, and trim to size with scissors. Attach to the back of the roof with a glue gun and glue sticks. This is what the front of the Gingerbread House looks like when complete. You can use liquid craft glue for this project, but you will have to wait for it to dry.
Paint the front and sides of the House with Milk Chocolate acrylic paint. Set aside to dry and apply a second coat, if necessary. Paint one additional jumbo craft stick with Milk Chocolate acrylic paint and glue it to the bottom edge of the Gingerbread House. I love my Americana Acrylics from DecoArt because they have one-coat coverage on most surfaces.

Trace the door pattern onto green craft foam. Trace the window pattern twice onto red craft foam. Cut out all shapes with scissors, making sure to cut inside the traced lines for a clean, finished project.
Paint stripes on both candy canes with Santa Red acrylic paint. Make sure that one candy cane hooks points left and the other points right. Have fun with this project, the stripes don't have to be straight or perfect.
Attach the snow, door, windows, and candy canes to the Gingerbread House with a glue gun and glue stick. Use the photo as your guide. Paint the frames on the two red windows with white acrylic craft paint and a paintbrush.
Glue a red tinsel pom pom to the door as a knob, and two green tinsel pom poms beside each candy cane as bushes. Attach red and green tinsel pom poms to the snow on the roof of the Gingerbread House using a glue gun and glue sticks.
Loosely wrap two green chenille stems together, then bend them into a circle, twisting to secure them at the top to create a wreath. Tie a skinny red ribbon in a small bow and glue it onto the wreath. To finish the Gingerbread House, attach the wreath to the gable end of the roof with a glue gun and glue sticks.
