Corrugated Cardboard Gingerbread Man

Gingerbread men are not being made in the kitchen anymore! This paper gingerbread man looks cute as a tree ornament or hanging on a Christmas gift. This project requires just a few cutting, gluing and sewing steps to complete.



Christmas Craft - Corrugated Cardboard Gingerbread Man

For this project you will need:

- red and brown corrugated cardboard
- white yarn
- wide sewing needle
- needle and soft underground such as fun foam for poking the holes
- red checked ribbon
- three 8 mm red wooden balls (one of the wooden balls will need to be halved and then gets used as the nose)
- two 6 mm white wooden balls
- scissors
- glue
- craft knife

Craft Pattern:

Gingerbread Man and Clothes 100

Gingerbread Man Template






1. Print out the gingerbread man template and transfer the markings onto the appropriately colored corrugated cardboard. You need 2 gingerbread men, 1 backside of vest and 2 vest halves. Make sure to cut out one vest half in reverse.
2. Glue on the 2 front vest halves onto one gingerbread man body. On the other gingerbread man body glue on the back side of the vest.
3. Make 2 cross stitch eyes on the front body.
4. Glue the two gingerbread man bodies together.
5. Poke holes all around the outside edge of the gingerbread man and then sew together.
6. Use caution with this step. Use your craft knife and cut into one red bead and one white bead to create bead halves. Glue one red half on the gingerbread man as a nose. Glue both white bead halves onto the vest as buttons.
7. Connect a piece of yarn to the top of the gingerbread man to create a hanging loop. Add three beads to this hanging yarn before knotting off.
