A mom on TikTok is making kid’s dreams a reality by turning her home into a life-size gingerbread house with giant candy!
Okay, not every decorative piece is edible, but there is a large candy bar filled with countless glass jars stuffed to the brim with real candy.
The ongoing Christmas project has caught the attention of many for your pages while going viral with consecutive updates and videos to show progress.
Making use of dollar tree supplies and hobby lobby stores, each section of her home looks like something you can eat!
Racking up millions of views, Kristyn Cole’s project all started with gingerbread bread walls using long slabs of cardboard, insulating foam sealant that looks like white frosting when dried, white spray paint, and colorful to go containers for giant gum drops.
Using mounting tape, the gum drops and icing were placed around her window area.
In another video, the creative mom also used pink lanterns and white wrapping paper stuffed on either side to act as large pieces of wrapped hard candy!
Using a fishing line to hang the giant pieces of candy, this area of the room almost looks like a scene from Willy Wonka.
Creating more candy pieces by painting a handful of craft discs in pastel colors and hot glued beads for sprinkles wrapped in tissue paper and clear plastic wrap, the candy bar is complete with some edible candy available and life-sized lookalikes.
Think Hershey park’s gigantic candy bars for a size comparison.
Although her gingerbread house is not yet complete, you can follow her TikTok account @kristyncole to see the finished results later on in the holiday season!
Don’t we all wish we could live in a life-size gingerbread house.
