Gingerbread Man Wreath

Gingerbread Man  Tutorial 
This little wreath came about because of my mom.  Years and years ago she got these cute gingerbread and a church activity.  As you can see, she never used them!

So last year she asked if I wanted them.  Of course, I said yes.  But had no idea what to do with them.  After hitting pinterest for a year, I decided I would make them into some kind of wreath.

First, you'll need gingerbread.  I obviously have wooden ones, but you could probably use real gingerbread men too!  Grab your favorite color of paint and paint them.

Next, add eyes, nose, mouth, and "decorations".  I decided to make each of mine a little different.

To do these I bought these great paint markers.  They worked really well and kept me from messing up!

Once your gingerbread are dry, place 3 of them together at the feet like below.  Then glue the feet together.  Repeat this with the other 3 gingerbread men.

No place one set of 3 gingerbread over the other set like the picture below.  Glue them in place really well.  I placed the glue on the bottom layer and then set the top layer over it.

Grab some festive ribbon and tie it around your wreath.
