Gingerbread Christmas tree decorations (the recipe included)

Gingerbread Christmas tree decorations (the recipe included)

Are you in the Christmas mood already? We just bought our Christmas tree and I took out the last year decorations (hand made and hand sewn  of course! And this year I decided to continue making my own decorations. I am definitely not buying plastic decorations from the shops, maybe a few crafty additions to my Christmas Décor form local suppliers. 

As I have hand painted glass bulbs and hand sewn decorations, I had to go with something different. This year I decided to do a bit of baking and add edible decorations. Ginger bread cookies. I did that a few years ago, but this time I used a different recipe. 

And here are the results! 

What crafty decorations are you adding to your Christmas décor?
