Many of us remember the tale of Hansel and Gretel that were lured into a delightful, delicious looking gingerbread house that was owned by an evil old woman that is secretly a witch who invites the two starving children in for a bite to eat. Unaware of what the old woman’s real intentions were Hansel and Gretel accepted her offer and followed her in.

The witch eventually locks Hansel in a cage, and makes Gretel her slave. This tutorial is a fun way to learn how to draw a gingerbread house step by step.
