Step 7:

Create a Christmas tree out of paper bags or craft your own gingerbread man to add to the holiday scene. Use royal icing to secure these additional decorations.

Step 8:

Once your gingerbread house is complete, let it dry and set for a while. Your gingerbread house is ready to be displayed as part of your holiday decor or as a centerpiece.
