♥ Day 9; Gingerbread Houses
Hey Lovelies! I couldn’t get gingerbread houses out of my mind ever since I started with sketching this Winter Wonderland project. And at first I only could think of the traditional, square kind of houses. But why should I make them like that if I can have fun with it as well, and make it just a little different. So here we are, this is what we are gonna create.
For this DIY you’ll need:
♥ Air Dry Clay in the colors Brown, White and Light Blue.
♥ Sculpting Tools. (Optional)
♥ Black/Brown Marker
For this tutorial I will use glue to put parts together, you can totally leave this out if you trust your clay enough to stick.
Gingerbread Houses Tutorial
Make a ball of the brown clay of about 2cm.
From white clay make a cone first and make the base a bit hollow so the ball can sit in there nicely, you can use a ball tool for this of just use your fingers. Make the edge a bit uneven so it’s like snow. Make the tip of the cone slightly more pointy so it gets a bit more playful. Use the picture for reference, to get what I mean exactly.
Then, glue this to the ball you just made as well.
Make with some light blue clay, (3D) hearts. You can glue those to the tips of the roofs or on the side.
After that, you can make some doors on the houses, just how you like. I used a black marker to make the door handle on there
Of course you can add more details if you like, do what you love! Make as many as you want and glue them on the Snowball.
