I am sure like most of you I get my ideas from Youtube, Pinterest, and magazines and sometimes just go shopping and looking what is out there. Personally, I get my ideas from everything I look at. This idea is from FABEDhacks “Dollar Tree + DIY Gingerbread Christmas” on YouTube. This was her idea.
I liked her idea of watching Christmas movies and it did look like you spilled cookie-making goodies on the tray. She made cutout felt shapes to look like cookies. I loved the concept. So I bought the Dollar Tree cookie sheet, everything else I had on hand.
I painted the cookies sheet. I used Apple Barrel paints in black, red, and white. I then sealed it with Mod Podge.
I used peel-off lettering I also got at the Dollar Store and lightly placed them where I wanted them. I used a Sharpie paint pen medium point to make all the dots on the cookie sheet that helps form the words.
The letters I peeled off the cookie sheet once I had enough dots where you could read the words. Because I have an embroidery machine I had embroidered two gingerbread people and used them for placement for the wording. Once I was done I glued the gingerbread people down to the cookies sheet. I used my glue gun to glue them down.
The Gingerbread ornaments can be found at UrbanThreads.com.
I hope you try this decoration because it was so easy to do. Merry Christmas!
