Gingerbread House Ornament ♥ Crochet Pattern

Gingerbread House Ornament Crochet Pattern
This ornament was inspired by a knitted Christmas tree ornament that my older sister made a couple years ago (scroll down below to see what it looks like). I think she made it for some sort of advent calendar ornament thing. In the past, I would hang this gingerbread house on my bulletin board as a festive decoration. This year, I thought it would be cute to recreate the gingerbread house ornament and make a crochet version! I made a few changes and added a bow to the center of the gingerbread house. I'm very happy with how it came out and if I had a bigger tree maybe I would decorate my tree with them. haha

This project only took me about 30 minutes to make so it's a very quick pattern to crochet. It's a really easy crochet pattern, perfect for beginners. If you crochet this project, you can post it on Ravelry or tag me @mooeyscrochet so that I can see your creation. If you want to learn how to crochet, watch my crochet how-to video here.

Assembly
Sew the door to the gingerbread house. To make the windows, just use a tapestry needle and yarn and make long loop marks on the side of the door until you make a square, repeat on the other side. To make the ribbon, tie the long chain into a bow and sew the bottom of the ribbion to the house to stay secure. I didn't sew down the loops of the ribbion because I wanted the loops to stand out.
