Gingerbread Houses in Glass Jars

by Julie on December 20, 2012 · 10 comments

You may remember a post I did on Anchor Hocking’s Heritage Hill Jars and all the great things you can do with them.

Well, when I ran across this post at Talk of the House I knew I wanted to share with you what Kelly did with these jars for Christmas.

Gingerbread houses under glass!

How cute and perfect is that? She even stores them that way all year.

Thanks, Kelly, for letting me share your idea with The Family CEO readers.

I’m glad you like it, Christa. I thought it was adorable. Like a snow globe.

Those are really cute. I’m guessing you could even make them in wide-mouth mason jars (I’m completely obsessed with these jars!)

I think any clear glass jar the house will fit in would work, LH. Perfect for “Little House” fans. :)

Love this! Our daughter is far too young to build a gingerbread house but this is something we could make and not have to worry about her destroying.

Exactly, Marvin. Maybe next year.

This is so innovative and artsy. I would love to make gingerbread houses in glass jars too. It’s a great way to recycle my old jars and it’s a lovely display.
