Then, we moved and there was a... mishap.
Unfortunately, I can't really give you too many tips on how to go about with the construction, except that you need a good and sturdy base (foundation) and then the sky's the limit. I just tried to keep a general idea of what a castle looks like and went from there!
Before you get too impressed, there's plenty of mistakes! But, with the use of some of that sparkly snow blanket material that I picked up at the Dollar Tree, I was able to hide those imperfections while making the castle look like it's floating in a cloud!
|See? No, you don't!|
I think this is a great alternative to the traditional gingerbread house because it will last for years to come...just don't drop it!
I'll be keeping this display up for the remainder of the winter! Now look how cheap it is to "fake" your own:
