Woman Creates Life-Size Gingerbread House With Her Sweet DIY Skills

Kasia M 7 Nov 2019

I wrote about Christine McConnell recently when I showed you how she decorated her parents' house for Halloween.

Now I want to bring to your attention another awesome project she did. This time she transformed the same house into the perfect gingerbread house for Christmas and it looks just as amazing. See for yourself.

I once dated a guy who lived in a little house that reminded me of a gingerbread house.

This is actually Christine's parents' home, and it definitely has some gingerbread vibes going on.

Apparently, doing this was the fun part for her.

Is she a glutton for punishment? No seriously, this project definitely called for some mad decorating skills. Right?

Once the whole project was completed she called upon her nieces to help her out and play the parts of Hansel and Gretel.

Looks like they're having loads of fun.

The final product looks like something out of a fairy tale.

There's something about it that looks sweet and seasonal, but also a little spooky too, no?

She recently started making her own clothes which she prefers rather than getting store bought ones.

This dress only took her two days and ended up costing $28.

She's been making her own Christmas dresses for the past three years.

She claims it's pretty easy once you learn the basics and much cheaper than regular shopping.

And if you're a fan of her Netflix show "The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell" I've got some good news for you.
