A Gingerbread garland is such a fun little holiday décor you can add to your kitchen or any other place you feel necessary in your home for the holidays.
Making a Gingerbread Cookie Garland
Making a gingerbread cookie garland is a favorite activity to do with the kids during Christmastime. I typically have to make two separate batches (one batch of cookies for eating) and another for hanging. Cause you know, you put that batch of baked ginger goods out on the counter and before you know it, all mouths will want to eat them. So I make sure to have another batch whenever I’m making a garland, not that we don’t frequently make gingerbread cookies during the holidays:)
Gingerbread Cookie Garland
- Gingerbread Cook Dough
- A straw
- Icing (recipe here)
- Jute String
- Gingerbread cookie cutters (I use snowmen and candy-cane ones, too)
What to do:
- Choose your favorite Gingerbread cookie recipe (or use this one)
- Make cookies as directed
- Before baking, use the straw to poke a hole at the top of each cookie.
- Bake as directed. Let cool completely.
- Once the cookies have cooled, go ahead and decorate with icing. Let the icing dry.
- Now you can string the cookies into a garland using the jute string.
Hang your pretty garland somewhere in your home. I typically hang mine over a window in our kitchen (to get all the good smells)!! It looks wonderful!
