Graham Cracker "Gingerbread" House

Dan and I spent our Sunday building this "gingerbread" house made out of graham crackers. We followed the template from this blog but we added our own decorations. Using graham crackers was a little easier because we could skip the step of baking gingerbread. We used a lot of different candies and treats to decorate the house. The top of the house is covered with frosting, gum drops, and snow caps. We used square pretzels to make windows, and a small piece of graham cracker to make the door.
We even made a patio in the back of the house surrounded by green "hedges" aka gum drops.
The trees were made from icecream cones that we dipped in melted white chocolate. We used shredded coconut and green sprinkles for the leaves, and M&Ms for lights. We continued the green sprinkles and coconut on the ground to make it look like snowy grass.
I also found these really cute gingerbread men peeps which we put in front of the house. We had a great time putting this together!! I hope you like the pictures!
