Gingerbread: A Christmas Theme

Gingerbread  YUM! My mouth is watering just thinking about it…   Like yesterday’s Holiday at the Beach theme, we’re going to interpret today’s theme two different ways.   You can go with a slightly RUSTIC feel and incorporate

  • fruit slices
  • grapevine
  • burlap
  • pinecones
  • cut-out shapes; classy, not cute

This collages contains pics I’ve clipped from various magazines over the years; some probably from Country Living. Sorry I don’t know which ones.

Rustic gingerbread Xmas Or you might prefer something more PLAYFUL:

  • gingerbread house
  • candies and icing
  • smiling gingerbread men
  • checked or striped ribbons in traditional reds and greens

Gingerbread Xmas Either way, you might like to satisfy your handcrafting urge by making fragrant Cinnamon Ornaments to hang on your tree–or give to guests. They smell amazing!


I hope you’re enjoying this Themes of Christmas series. All previous themes are listed HERE.


  1. Just the thought of gingerbread puts me in bliss. I have a dear friend that would love this theme.

    Day two of my holiday home tour is now posted. Please come by for a visit. Yesterday was the outside front of our home and the porch, and today is the foyer, stairway and landing.
