How to Draw a Gingerbread House

Artist: Dawn / November 29, 2017

Step 1.

The first thing you will do is draw out the shape of a simple rounded house. Draw the pitched roof, then draw the circle for the lollipop.

Step 2.

Begin drawing the roof in better detail. The icing drips down the ends of the roof just like icicles would when snow and rain freezes. Add some of the candy to the roof.

Step 3.

Next up, draw in the chimney like so, then draw an overhand around the rim of the stack. When that is done I chose to add some candy canes shooting from the stack. Add more small round candies like so.

Step 4.

Now the decorating begins on the roof. Add some Skittles or gum drops in rows on your roof, then when that is done draw a circular shape for the wreath or window.

Step 5.

Next, sketch out the thick column like edges for the house's structure, then when you are done you can move to step six.

Step 6.

Draw the beads along the base of the house, then draw a door and the icing dripping down the door. Above the door add more candy, then add some stripes on the posts.

Step 7.

All that is left to do now is draw the walkway that leads to the front door, then draw in the swirl style lollipop on the front lawn. Erase the mistakes and guides then you are done.

Step 8.

Depending on what your gingerbread house was decorated like, your drawing should come out looking like this. Color in your house and you are done.
