Wooden Gingerbread Man and Heart Chain

This is a cute decoration for any window or glass door. Make the chain as long or as short as you need and just repeat the two figures until you have the length you need. Instead of painting the figures, scrapbook paper was used to embellish the wood pieces.



Wooden Gingerbread Man and Heart Chain

For this project you will need:

- 6 mm plywood
- white acrylic paint
- decoupage glue
- drill with small bit
- wire for hanging
- paint brush
- raffia for decorating

Craft Pattern:

Gingerbread Man and Heart

Gingerbread and Heart Pattern






1. Print out the pattern and transfer the markings onto wood. Saw out and sand if necessary.
2. Cut gingerbread man and hearts out of scrapbook paper and glue on both sides of each wood piece. Drybrush the edges in white. Then add 2-3 coats of Modge Podge to seal and add shine to the figures.
3. Drill holes in the tops and bases of all but the bottom most piece. For that piece you will only need to drill a hole in the top. Now connect the figures alternatively to each other with wire. Add raffia bows in between each figure when finished.
