This makes decorating so much easier, and you won’t need to run to the store mid-way through gingerbread house creating!

Step 3: Decide what you’d like to decorate.
Decorating the roof and walls of your gingerbread house is a must, but also consider decorating the outside surrounding area of your gingerbread house kit it really makes your gingerbread house look spectacular!  If you’re looking to go all out and add some additional decor to your holiday hut, we’ve got plenty of extra bling to add around the exterior such as gingerbread men and more!
