Haniela's: Holiday Gingerbread Birdhouse Centerpiece

Holiday Gingerbread Birdhouse Centerpiece

Friday, November 24, 2017

I wish I could have saved all the gingerbread houses I'd made over the years! Wouldn't that be awesome if I had them all. Imagine.
This year I'm breaking into the gingerbread season with this cute little Gingerbread Birdhouse. My favorite thing about it? The wreath. I just love it so much, and I rarely say that about anything I make but I just adore how it looks. It is delicate and looks pretty real, though don't expect it to smell like pine.
