Gingerbread Tree!


Welcome everyone! This is a very fun gingerbread tree in my kitchen. I really enjoyed decorating the tree with mini kitchen items. Is this little muffin tin the cutest little thing? I have always love miniature things. When I was little I got a wonderful small doll house one Christmas, I was so happy! I played with it outside that day and the next morning I went outside to play with it and someone had stolen it!! Boo hoo. Now that it is Christmas time all the little toys come out!!
The cookie sheet is a small piece of wood I spray painted and then attached little gingerbread cookies (from the wood isle in Michael's), hot glued a rolling pin and bow on to hang it from.





Whenever I find small kitchen items I snatch them up, add a red checked ribbon and voila it becomes an ornament!

This is a little syrup bottle from the Cracker Barrel restaurant that I saved and brought home for the tree.
On top of my hoosier I have a few gingerbread items along with my faux baked items!


Thanks for stopping by my Ribbonwood (Gingerbread) Cottage! Wait till you what I have made to go along with this tree.....it turned out so cute....tomorrow!
Blessings,
Debbie

I love your tree! Gingerbread men are so cute. I did away with my big tree a few years ago and now do pencil trees in every room with different themes and colors. I hope to get them up this weekend. I am so far behind...ugh. Thanks so much for all of your wonderful inspiration.

My tiny tree for the kitchen has gingerbread themed stuff on it. I love it but I would love to get some of the miniature kitchen items for mine. I looked at them at the craft show on the weekend but they wanted a lot for the miniatures and I know they bought them from some catalog and jacked up the price. I'll just have to keep my eyes open and think of new ideas for that tree for next year :)

Can't wait to see what you are working on :)

Have a great night!
