Here's how to create Gingerbread in 30 Minutes:
To begin the Dollar Tree Christmas Craft Stick Gingerbread Couple, gather all supplies. To create both the Gingerbread Man and Woman, line up five jumbo craft sticks on your work surface. Using scissors, trim additional jumbo craft sticks to the width of the couple and attach them with a glue gun and glue sticks. 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 craft stick Gingerbread Couple with Milk Chocolate acrylic craft paint. Set aside to dry and apply a second coat, if necessary. I love my Americana Acrylics from DecoArt because they have one-coat coverage on most surfaces.
Download, print, and cut out the CRAFT STICK GINGERBREAD COUPLE PATTERN below ⇓ Using a pencil, trace the decorative icing pattern onto white craft foam four times. Cut out all shapes with scissors, making sure to cut inside the traced lines for a clean, finished project.
Adhere two wiggle eyes to each Gingerbread person with a glue gun and glue sticks. Create cheeks with pink acrylic craft paint and a sponge dabber. Set aside to let the paint dry. Attach a section of decorative icing to the top and bottom of each Gingerbread person with a glue gun and glue sticks.
Attach five self-adhesive rhinestones in between the hills and valleys of the decorative icing at the top and bottom of both the Gingerbread Man and Woman. If you don’t have rhinestones, you can use small buttons, pom poms, over even dots of acrylic paint.
Draw a large smile from cheek to cheek using a permanent black marker. Tie the red gingham ribbon in two small bows. Using scissors, trim any long ends in a triangle pattern. Attach the bow to the top of the Gingerbread Woman and to the bottom of the Gingerbread Man with a glue gun and glue sticks. Trimming the ends of the ribbon not only finishes the bow but also prevents the ribbon from fraying. The MONO Twin is a versatile marker to craft with because it has a larger bullet tip and an extra fine tip, which makes it perfect for all types of applications.
