So why not add a touch of homemade charm to your holiday decor with a crochet gingerbread house ornament? It's sure to be a delightful addition to your festive celebrations. 


You have to make two (2) parts of the base of the house — a crochet rectangle and two (2) parts for the roof of the house — a cut off crochet triangle.


For all the edges to be nice, even and straight you have to crochet around with a single crochet stitch.

The final size of the ornament gingerbread house is 8 x 9cm. I was using a 3mm crochet hook and some cotton DK yarn.

The size may vary depending on your crochet hook size, yarn thickness and the tension. I am a tight crocheter.

To decorate your gingerbread house ornament you can use embroidery, beads, sequins, felt, crochet small shapes (heart, circle)
