Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year and also the busiest time of the year. I try to find simple things to help make life easier since everything is so crazy during Christmas. That is why I was so happy when I was asked to join the Gift of Gingerbread Blog Hop. I was thrilled because I was looking for a reason to share my little gingerbread men cookies that I use as decorations with you.
Supplies for Easy Gingerbread Men Cookies Decorations:
Gingerbread Cookie Recipe
Greenery and/or berries
4 mm nonpareils for the eyes and buttons
Icing to hold the eyes and buttons in place
All you have to do is bake your gingerbread men cookies. As soon as you take them out of the oven, use the round end of a wooden skewer to make 2 eye holes and 2 button holes. When the cookies cool, tie a piece of fabric for the scarf. Then, add a drop of icing in each hole and drop in the 4mm nonpareils. So simple. Now place them on an old cookie sheet with some pine branches and berries and you are all done.
