Artist Transforms Her Parents’ Home Into A Massive Holiday Gingerbread House

1

After transforming her parents’ house into a scare factory for Halloween, Los Angeles-based artist and baker Christine McConnell proceeded to give the dwelling a Christmas makeover to make it look like a full-scale gingerbread cottage.

The methods were similiar to those used for the Halloween decorations, utilizing hand-painted foamcore boards for all of the gingerbread cookie and candy cane decorations while nylon rope stood in for icing. To top it all off, McConnell staged a fairy tale photo with herself playing a hungry witch trying to lure Hansel and Gretel, played by her nieces Chloe and Keira.

Check out more pictures below.

I made a nylon rope net to mimic an iced roof… Getting it on was tricky! 😥
