The Materials Needed To make The Crochet Gingerbread House

Worsted weight/Aran yarns:

  • 425 yds tan
  • 100 yds white
  • 40 yds light pink
  • 25 yds pink


The holiday season is almost here and along with it two of the greatest pleasures; crocheted accessories and baked treats. A crochet gingerbread house is an ideal item combining the best of both worlds.

At first glance, you will have a hard time deciding whether to eat it or just stare at it in awe. Then again, you cannot eat yarn, cardboard, or glue.

Putting Together The Crochet Gingerbread House

The first step when putting together a crochet gingerbread house involves assembling the skeleton or the frame upon which the crocheted material will lie. For this part, you will need cardboard pieces that will comprise the gingerbread house’s physical structure.

Unlike many other crocheting projects, the crochet gingerbread house requires basic skills in structure assembly, a vivid imagination and steady hands.

I can attest to how much fun building the cardboard house is and would highly recommend parents out there to involve their kids in this phase.

With a sturdy box shape and a curved roof surface, you’re ready to proceed onto the next stage that is crocheting the yarn on the gingerbread house’s walls and roof. This stage requires crocheting finesse and technical know-how to put together.

The crochet gingerbread house’s sides and roof are crocheted separately and afterward attached to the cardboard house using hot glue. The roof section comes in two parts that are crocheted to resemble tiles. As I mentioned, this level of experience requires some practice.
