6 Stunning Rustic Gingerbread Houses To Inspire You

In our house, we are just starting to think about what style gingerbread house we will make this year. Every year the kids make gingerbread houses out of milk cartons, graham crackers and vanilla frosting while I drool over more sophisticated designs that I never seem to find the time to make.

This year, things are going to be different, I’m making a real gingerbread house(at least that’s what I’m telling myself) and it’s going to look like one of the following inspiring houses below:

  1. Rustic Gingerbread Log Cabin by Sue

    This is one of my favorite gingerbread houses. It looks so simple, though maybe a little time consuming, to make. Sweet little ducks complete this charming yet edible woodland home.

Artist Spotlight: Inspirational Woodworker from Tuscany, Andrea Brugi

I can’t help it. I fell in love with Andrea Brugi’s work the moment I first laid eyes on it. His rustic yet contemporary style is intriguing.  It has a simplistic feel with old world charm yet fits perfectly in the modern home.

My hope is to Inspire

Welcome to my new blog.  I started this blog because I found myself spending countless hours on Pintrest.com bookmarking things I love and want to create. Often, I get just an image so I wonder, where can I get the elements used in the photo? Can I buy them online? Can I make them? Is someone else blogging about it? That’s when I find myself off on a wild goose chase in search of how to recreate or buy what inspires me.

Instead of keeping all this knowledge to myself, I decided to share it with you. At My Rustic House you will find rustic inspired home decor, tutorials on how to create your own, down home cooking recipes, where to buy guides, and much more.

Eventually, I hope to sell our handcrafted creations as well as my friends. If you have something you’d like to showcase on this site, feel free to contact me anytime. I’d love to hear from you.
