8 Gingerbread Houses {to make}

I got an e-mail from Rachel wanting some inspiration on gingerbread houses. Girl, I hit the mother load! You are not going to believe what I found blog-jogging. Here you go, have fun!

How To Make a Gingerbread House

The Farmer’s Wife has gone above and beyond with several tutorials on how to make an amazing gingerbread house.

1. Find a pattern
2. Mix the dough
3. Working the dough
4. How to make glass windows

Synergy Mom hooked us up with an amazing tutorial complete with candy windows that light up! {{fabulous}}

Here’s Random Ramblings version, I’m loving the light post.

Beyond The Picket Fence made shingles for her roof!

I’m loving Andrea’s trees.

Dianasaur has several different styles to choose from: Christmas Chalet, Country Chapel, and Candy Cottage. Wow!

Tracy’s version is incredible! Are those “Merry Christmas” pretzels!

For those of us who are culinary-challenged {{raising my hand}}, here’s a gingerbread box tutorial you can make out of paper from Paper Crazy.


  1. i love gingerbread house, but can’t for the life of me ever make them turn into something resembling a house. My sister in law and her friends made Cinderella’s Castle this year. Seriously. Take a gander.

  2. Those are amazing! How in the world did she keep that first one from toppling over! It’s awesome!

  3. Thought I would share this with ya for next year…


    (Its in Utah.–I thought I remember reading thats where you are from) My Mom is the executive over it, and all the proceeds go BSA and PTA. Anyhoo.. We have been a few times, and its great.

  4. Look Beyond The Picket Fence

    Thanks for visiting my blog. I had a lot of fun making the house with my daughter. We will be doing this again next year. I enjoyed looking at all the other houses.

    These houses are great! My friend built a huge gingerbread house this year and donated it to our kids school. The class with the most nights of reading won it to eat. It was amazing hearing all the ooos and ahhhhs from the kids when they saw the house wheeled into the gym! My friend is very shy but you could see the pride on her face as the kids cheered! I felt very proud for her!

  6. Thanks for the link! I just posted our friends’ creation from the same day — a gingerbread zoo! I hope you come back to Rah Cha Chow to check it out!


  7. they are all so wonderful!

  8. So glad you loved the house from our blog:) Love all the other houses you’ve posted as well! Great job ladies!

  11. These houses are so pretty! I am wanting to make my first gingerbread house, thanks for the inspiration!

  12. Loving the Gingerbread box but can’t find it on the website it is linked to. Do you have any suggestions of how to find it? Would love to use the template for the upcoming holidays!
