Directions

Trace and cut out gingerbread man for foamie according to the pattern.

 

Place the 2 moving eyes on the face and glue in place.

 

Going down the body, paint three heart “buttons” on the gingerbread man. To make the hearts, take the end of the brush handle and dip dot into the red acrylic paint. Make two small dots right next to each other. Use the tip of the handle to pull or drag the dots down into a point, forming the heart.

 

Use the shiny white Scribbles paint to make the “icing” around the gingerbread man, using the pictured sample as a reference. You can also use a paint marker or paint the icing with acrylic paint and a brush. Let dry.

 

Tie a small bow with the 4” of 1/8” ribbon. Glue to the neck. Take the 6” of 1/8” ribbon and tie the ends together. Glue the knotted end to the back of the gingerbread man’s head for the hanger.
