Ugly Sweater Gingerbread Men

I have to confess, I wasn’t particularly looking forward to making this year’s Christmas cookies.

I was just uninspired.

That is, until I picked up the December copy of Taste of Home.

There, on the cover, just staring at me were their gingerbread people.  It was never mentioned in the article, but they were all wearing hideously ugly sweaters.


Ugly sweater Gingies.

I took mine a step further than the folks at Taste of Home and gave my little guys all dickeys to wear under their sweaters and some lovely Christmas comb overs.  I think Cousin Eddie would be proud.

Speaking of Cousin Eddie…did you spot him below sporting his ever-so-stylish white sweater & black dickey?  That there’s my pride ‘n joy.

So in the immortal words of Cousin Eddie…

  3. Okay, those are just beyond adorable!! They look like a lot of work but I might be up for the challenge as we are having an Ugly Sweater Night on Christmas Eve and these would be perfect for the party. Thanks for the inspiration and I'm so glad I saw them over at the Your Great Idea Linky Party!
