First, Cole created gingerbread walls for her house. She covered long slabs of cardboard with GREAT STUFF Gaps and Cracks Insulating Foam Sealant. The foam looked just like frosting when it dried.
Next, she sprayed it with high-gloss white spray paint. Cole then spray-painted 16-ounce to-go containers in pink and blue and hot-glued them onto the boards. It looked just like giant gumdrops dipped in icing.
After the “gumdrops and icing” dried, she secured them on the wall with mounting tape. Cole placed them around her window area and swapped the curtains for garland, which she secured with zip ties.

She returned to the garland on her curtain rod and beefed it up with Christmas ornaments like lollipops, candy canes, snowflakes and gingerbread men.
To create more candy decorations, Cole went “nuts” at Dollar Tree.
She painted craft discs in pastel colors, then hot-glued on beads to look like sprinkles. She covered the discs in plastic wrap and tied each side with a hairband to make them look like wrapped candies.
It just goes to show what a little imagination and a few dollar store items can do!
