Gingerbread Houses 2014 + Free Printable Pattern

Making gingerbread houses is one of our favorite Christmas traditions. Last night after the Christmas Devotional we had some friends over for a little friendly competition. The couples were split and the teams were set.... boys against girls. The results are still to be determined. ;)

We all had a blast. Over on the girls' side we were joking we needed to record our husbands as they discussed different piping techniques and color schemes. It was adorable.

We used our favorite gingerbread recipe to make the houses. Also this was the first year we have used royal icing for our houses and oh my goodness it made a huge difference. It's a must from here on out!

You can download the free printable pattern for these houses by saving the images above or by clicking HERE. Or if you want to do smaller individual houses I have another free pattern over HERE.

Happy decorating!!
