Real gingerbread decorations
Gingerbread cookies can be used to make decorations. They're durable enough to withstand some transformation. Grab a few cookies you like and hang them on ribbons to use as ornaments, or put them on a ribbon as a garland. Make a fancy terrarium out of a gingerbread house, add fake snow and some pine cones. Make edible wreaths and hangings out of gingerbread cookies and enjoy them - both for decor and meals!
Faux gingerbread decorations
If you don't want to bake cookies, make them out of other materials, they are sure to be more durable. Gingerbread-inspired decorations can be made from felt and a variety of fabrics - make some as ornaments, gift tags, key chains, and just as gifts. They can be shaped as men, houses, snowflakes, and mittens - give them any shape you like and mimic the icing too! Then grab these pieces and put them on a Christmas tree, hang a garland or a window. Get inspired!
