Decorating your annual gingerbread house but want to change it up a bit? Here are a few creative ideas for decorating a gingerbread house, including roof and walkway ideas, that will provide you with a little inspiration to make the best looking house ever!
You can decorate the roof of your gingerbread house with all kinds of things such as sour belt candy seen over at bakepedia, smartie candies spotted at cakecentral, white chocolate dipped pretzels such as this one at backtoorganic, or candied pecans via sweetopia.
Don’t forget to add a cute little walkway or sidewalk to your gingerbread house because the details can really bring together the whole house. You can use sprinkles for a cute walkway as seen over at sprinklebakes, Kit Kat candy bars as did littleloveliesbyallison, crushed peppermint via Patricia Lisen seen here or Hershey’s chocolate bar pieces (example from gotchocolate).
Mini gingerbread houses are all the craze for the holiday time and can be made to fit on the side of a nice hot cup of cocoa. You can use icing to create fun designs like Lydia did at lydiabakes or adorable little wreaths for the front of your mini gingerbread house like Karen over at honestlyyum. We also love the idea of making gingerbread house pops like these at thedecoratedcookie and using crushed peppermint on the roof as seen at notmartha.
