How to Make a DIY Gingerbread House Decorating Kit:

1. Wash the craft container since you will be putting food inside. Allow the container to dry completely.

2. Place different candy in each compartment of the craft container. If the lid on your container is loose, you might want to secure it with a piece or two of tape.

3. Attach the gift tags to the craft container (or you can attach the tag to the entire package, that’s up to you).

4. Wrap the craft container, graham crackers and icing in a gift box.


Your recipient can build his or her house with graham crackers and icing, then decorate it.
