Jen Goode with 100 Directions is back again this month! This time she has some gingerbread man paper Christmas decor that you are going to love!
Make little gingerbread men to add to all your Christmas decor. I love adding cute accents to my Christmas decorations. Homemade Christmas ornaments, garland and wreath embellishments can be so easy to create. These paper accents are perfect to make yourself or as part of a group activity, I’ll show you how.
Gingerbread Man Paper Christmas Decor
I originally created this Gingerbread man art as part of a cute holiday coloring page. You can use Christmas coloring pages to create all kinds of holiday decor. So, I’ve created a new version of the art you can use for all your crafty decorating. You can use the art as a printable, or upload to Cricut Design Space and let your Cricut machine do all the cutting for you! See more about using print then cut with your Cricut here.
- Printable Gingerbread Man design by Jen Goode
- Brown/kraft paper or cardstock
- Glitter, glitter glue or paint and a paintbrush
- Download and print the gingerbread man art on to the brown paper.
- Cut out the art.
- Color and decorate each gingerbread man however you’d like.
- Add twine or hooks to create ornaments or attach to twine to make a garland.
You can get a completely different look if you print the design on a different color of paper. I like the kraft paper for more of a country chic look. But you could go crazy and print on hot pink and decorate with all kinds of neons. Or how about printing on white and then coloring with gold?
Tip: If you upload the art to Cricut Design Space, you can resize to fit your project needs.
Idea: You can also make cute gift tags with this gingerbread man. Just cut and color and then add a little bow or twine to attach to your gifts. You can write “to” and “from” on the back, or make a little sign for your guy to hold.
I decorated my gingerbread men with glitter glue, glitter paint, and even a little glitter nail polish. It’s not Christmas without an overload of glitter, don’t you think? I added red bows and white paper ornaments to finish off my mini Christmas tree.
