Whether or not you’re seasoned in making the most beautiful gingerbread houses, now’s the time to get inspired.

It’s a win-win for everyone.

And trust us, you don’t have to be a pro to create a pretty gingerbread house. All you need is some store-bought gingerbread and some icing, really. Though if you want to be extra fancy, there are tons of things you can do with colorful candy and oddly-shaped cookies, too!
