Making a miniature gingerbread house for your Dollhouse is a great way to decorate your dollhouse for Christmas. A miniature gingerbread house is cute and one of a kind, and it can easily be made out of polymer clay. This article will discuss how to make a miniature Christmas gingerbread house for your dollhouse.
For this project you will need brown polymer clay, white clay, a knife, and several other colors of clay. Start by making the base of your house, and this is simple. All you will need to do is cut a rectangle from your block of polymer clay that is the right size for your miniature Christmas dollhouse gingerbread house. Next cut a triangle that is the same width as the rectangle and attach it to the top of the rectangle base. The next step is to roll out some brown clay to make the top of the roof and cut flat rectangle pieces to tick to the triangle. This should create an edge for the roof that overhangs the house. Bake this base for your Christmas miniature dollhouse gingerbread house and allow to cool.
Now that you have the base to your miniature dollhouse gingerbread house you must add frosting for detail and decoration. Start by rolling the white around to make it soft. Next roll the white clay out into a long thin tube. Use the tube to add trim to your dollhouse, and make loops along the roof for shingles. Add white trim to create windows and a door. Other nice details can be created with the frosting such as shutters, and the frosting will also make the gingerbread house look authentic if it runs along where the seams of the house would be.
My favorite part of making a miniature dollhouse Christmas gingerbread house is adding the candy. Start by making many tiny balls of different colored clay. You can also make miniature mints by making three thin tubes of white and three thin tubes of red. Press these together in an alternating pattern to make a peppermint, and roll the tube on a hard surface to make into a single round tube. Cut these into small disks to make mints. Make candy canes by twisting white and red together and bending into candy cane shapes. Bake the mini candies before adding them to you miniature dollhouse Christmas gingerbread house.
When the miniature candy is cooled add it to the house. Cover the roof with candies and add candy canes to the doors. There are many ways you can decorate your miniature Christmas gingerbread house so that it is perfect for your dollhouse, and it is easy and fun to create. Try this project today!
