What you will need:

  • Craft/bead organizing box (this is a perfect-sized one)
  • Various candies
  • Packaged graham crackers
  • Packaged cookie or cake icing
  • Gift label printed on cardstock or sticker paper.(see below)


How to put together the Gingerbread house decorating kit

Clean the craft/bead organizing box and allow to dry completely.

Using a funnel (because smaller candies like to jump), place the candies in each compartment of the organizer. (If needed, secure the lid with clear tape.) You can load up  on holiday-themed sprinkles and candies, but don’t forget about basics like rainbow jimmies, gumdrops, M&M’s, and other fun ideas that aren’t necessarily Christmas themed!
