IMG_2141Step 1. Gather up your supplies as shown. For this project I worked with the Christmas Tree scented glue sticks. This way the ornament will add a realistic aromatic scent to our artificial tree! Plus the scent brings back so many nostalgic holiday memories! You could also make ornaments for your holiday décor in any of the other scents available, such as: Apple Cinnamon, Pumpkin Pie, or French Vanilla!

IMG_2154Step 5. Stuff the body of the gingerbread man with fiberfill. Use the back of your pencil to make sure you stuff each of the arms and legs well.

IMG_2158Step 7. Now you are ready to begin embellishing! Cut out the decorative accents out of coordinating felt. Use pinking shears for the icing on the arms and legs for a cute handmade look. Feel free to make it your own by adding your own special touches. For this guy we added a green bowtie and two white pompoms for the body.
