How to Draw a Gingerbread House

Learn how to draw a Gingerbread House with my step by step tutorial, which includes a few tips on how to make it look dimensional.

This Gingerbread House project keeps all the simplicity of an easy to draw house, but includes just a few extra touches to make it look more real.

An added side of the house gives it some depth, and a little man and candy in the yard make for some extra color too.

Older students might also enjoy including a few shadows as shown. It only takes a bit of gray to make the shapes really stand out in the white snow.



Time needed: 45 minutes.
