How adorable is this little gingerbread craft? I can think of so many family members that would be in love opening this as a gift this year. I think I know what I will be making a bunch of to give out. I think the gingerbread design is perfect too instead of Santa or snowmen.

This is so cute. It will be a fun craft to do with my granddaughter and her twin cousins. They can make them to give as gifts. This would also be a nice craft for an adult and child to do at a craft fair table for a fundraiser. The characters can be girls ad boys, family members etc. The tiny clay pots could be hung as gingerbread ornaments too!

This is such a fun way to use my flower pots in the winter! No more storing them away for months at a time!
