DIY Gingerbread House with Bling

This little gingerbread house made from a wooden birdhouse is as cute as it gets! Add a little glam to your holiday decor by making a couple of these diy gingerbread houses and placing them on a table with a snow blanket! I’ve also created a similar gingerbread house without the bling.

DIY Gingerbread House Supplies


  1. Paint the birdhouse brown and let dry.
  2. Use a flat tool such as a butter knife to spread a thick layer of snow texture around the base of the house and on the front portion of the roof.
  3. Press the beads into the snow and let dry.
  4. Add rhinestones around the opening of the birdhouse. Add rhinestones to the snow for even more bling!

  1. Gingerbread houses are a wonderful tradition for children at Christmas. Depending on the size of the bird house you could make several of these for a Christmas tree.

  2. I got a chuckle out of this – it is my kind of gingerbread house – a little bling makes for a perfect touch of whimsey – and this is so easy, too. I’d love to try it!

  3. I would use this as a real bird house. There’s a bird out there looking for that special house with bling. Very cute.

  4. This is a great, waste-free idea – instead of buying a gingerhouse year after year, you can keep the same one! Smart!

  5. These look good enough to eat! But this might pose a problem if the rum punch and eggnog get a little out of hand…
    Thanks for the creative decoration idea!

  6. This is a great idea for those who don’t like gingerbread/don’t want to eat or waste their little house. Very cute!

  7. So creative! I would never have thought of using a birdhouse even though I have a variety of birds on my tree.

  8. I will definitely make a blingy gingerbread house when there’s no risk of kiddos eating the rhinestones but I love yours! Our gingerbread houses get eaten, not even a crumb left. 🙂

  9. My daughter actually did this same type of idea a few years ago! I told her she could put whatever she wanted on the gingerbread house so she glued on stickers & gems & sparkly snowflakes. We never eat them anyway so it was fine!
