How to decorate a Gingerbread Christmas Tree

26 days and counting until Christmas Day! I am in full Christmas mode at my house with trees, ornaments, ribbons, garland and decor all around. It’s a big job to put out Christmas. I started early this year and I have a couple rooms left and then I am done! My whole family will be coming to our house this year, so I will have a full house here. I am looking forward to it and can’t wait till my grandkids arrive!

I decorated our main tree with a gingerbread theme. I found unfinished wood gingerbread men at the Dollar Store and went from there!

I also added some faux candy that I made with supplies from the Dollar Store and Hobby Lobby using colored cellophane, ribbon, and styrofoam. They came out so cute!

I also added gingerbread houses, cookies, cupcakes, gummy bears, and anything else that I thought would go with my gingerbread theme. I found ornaments from At Home, Macy’s, and Hobby Lobby. Other ideas for gingerbread tree decor: candy canes, string popcorn, letters to Santa, colorful balls, balloons and so much more! There are no limits. If you love it, use it for your tree!

I made the large red and white lollipops by glue-gunning rope and ribbon to a plastic dinner charger and then I added the wood stick.

I also added the faux candy that I made with the colored cellophane to my bannister and topped it off with icicle lights.

This tree was really fun to create and I love all of the bright colors that are displayed. I am excited to celebrate Christmas with my family and I can’t wait until my grandkids see this tree! I hope you all have a great Christmas Holiday!
