How To Make A Gingerbread Birdhouse Ornament!

This will be one of my last Christmas posts for this year and it is hard to believe how fast the season goes each and every time! Today I am sharing how to make the cutest DIY gingerbread birdhouse ornament. I love gingerbread houses of all sorts, the real deal, faux ones and cookie versions too. When I was browsing the craft store I saw all these sweet miniature wooden birdhouses. I instantly thought they would make the perfect template for a gingerbread house! And sure enough they turned out darling! I am thrilled to be joining my friends Ashley at Modern Glam, Janine at Happy Happy Nester and Leslie at My 100 Year Old Home as we show different ornament ideas!
