Gingerbread Men Christmas Tree Decorations

Is there anything more Christmassy than gingerbread men? Well, probably, but how about gingerbread men Christmas tree decorations? Now before you start reaching for the ingredients to make some gingerbread men, this craft doesn’t require any cooking, just a cookie cutter in the shape of a gingerbread man.

This is a great craft to really let their creative juices going, all you need to do is set the materials up and let them go at it. Both of my charges came up with some wonderful descriptions of what they were adding to their men.  My favourite was the eyebrows that my eldest charge added to one of his decorations.

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 gingerbread men Christmas tree decorations you will need:

  • Foam – if you don’t have any foam, cardstock works just as well.
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Gingerbread man cookie cutter
  • Sequins/buttons/gems to decorate
  • Glitter glue
  • Glue gun
  • Ribbon

While EC was finishing off some homework and YC was coming back from ballet I set up what they needed. I find those plates that have separate compartments brilliant for setting up craft supplies in. It keeps all the different materials separate and it means that both of them can have their own supplies, which cuts down on any arguments about who wants what.

Start by drawing around the cookie cutter and cutting it out.

Then set up the items to decorate them with and leave your little ones to get on with it.

Finally once everything was dry I added some ribbon using a glue gun so that we could hang them up.
