Christmas Craftertime: Part 1 Gingerbread Wreath

Last year was mine and the boy's first Christmas in our newly purchased home and I got a little bit in to the decoration! This year is a bit of a different story, far too many weddings and birthdays to plan for, probably a good thing as the house probably can't cope with much more decoration!

So, as I wasn't blogging last year, but as always was taking many pictures I'm going to do a week run down of Christmas crafts each night this week! First up is - 

Gingerbread Wreath

First of you need to make salt dough, hundreds of recipes around and I added plentiful handfuls of cinnamon, ginger and other spices to give it a bit more Christmassyness!

Use a standard gingerbread man cutter and cut out lots of little men, numbers aren't important as long as you have enough to form a ring
Whack the oven on and cut some greaseproof paper for your oven tray. Lay out your little men making sure to overlap hands and feet.
This is what it should look like when put in the oven! Don't forget to put a little pressure on each of the joins so that  it won't break when baked.
Ta da! Thread some festive ribbon through their little bellies and hang like any wreath :)

All done!

 Merry almost Christmas!
