Cardboard Gingerbread Men

My final craft of 2019! It’s been quite a year. I thought I would finish with cardboard gingerbread men. If you’re like me, then you’ll probably be getting a whole bunch of parcels in the post at the moment. What a great way to reuse some of that cardboard and make decorations with them.  Plus it will hopefully give you 30+ mins of quiet to get last minute Christmas preparations done.

Make sure you follow my Christmas board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make your own cardboard gingerbread men you will need:

  • Cardboard
  • Scissors
  • Craft knife
  • Glitter pens
  • Felt tip pens
  • Ribbon
  • Gems

This is not a complete list of things; you could use anything that you have lying around. I raided our craft cupboard for our stuff.

Draw out you gingerbread men onto your cardboard and cut it out. It’s easier to cut it out using a craft knife than with scissors.   We did two large and two small ones.

BB and I spent an afternoon decorating them together. He would often leave the table to do something else, but he would always come back to add a little more to his cardboard gingerbread men.

Our creations have now been added to our playroom Christmas decorations.

Thank you for all your support this year wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
