Fabric gingerbread men for Christmas decor.

These gingerbread men are fun and easy to make.  I used a lightweight canvas which I painted brown and added embellishments to.  These look great with the candy canes and can be used in many different ways.


  • Small piece of lightweight canvas
  • brown paint
  • fiberfill stuffing
  • tiny buttons
  • fabric strip or ribbon for bow

Step 1.

Cut out two pieces for each gingerbread man. Put right sides together and then stitch around edge using a 1/4 inch seam allowance leaving the top of the head open.

Step 2.

Clip corners and all around edge and then turn to outside.  Paint brown and let dry.  Fill lightly with fiberfill stuffing.Stitch opening in head closed.

Step 3.

Attach buttons by sticking needle through button and on through the back pulling tightly.  Tie a bow around neck with ribbon or a fabric strip.

About Elaine Kazinec

I have never met anyone who can't make wonderful things for their homes, friends, and family, only those who think they can't. The purpose of this blog is to show everyone how really simple most projects for the home are to make. When my husband and I bought our first home we were short on cash so I learned to be long on creativity. I have been told that I can make something wonderful out of nothing and that is true. You can too! Some of my favorite things are items that I found in someone's junk pile. I am going to show you how easy it really is. I hope you find the courage to jump in and attempt some of these projects. You will be amazed at how talented you really are.
