Santa’s Aussie Gingerbread Shack, inspired by Santa’s Secret by Mike Dumbleton.

Constructing and decorating a gingerbread house was on Cammy’s Christmas To-Do List this year. By Christmas Eve we still hadn’t found the time to make one, so I phoned hubby in a mad panic and asked him to bring home a gingerbread house kit.

He walked in with an ‘Outback Shack’ gingerbread kit. At first I was a little perplexed, but Cammy quickly made a connection with Santa’s Secret, a fun Australian Christmas picture book.

With Santa’s Secret open for inspiration and Daddy’s carpentry skills put to good use, we created a wonderful gingerbread shack perfect for Santa.

And we’ve possibly started a new family Christmas tradition.

  1. What a gorgeous little shack. Well done, Jackie. I didn’t know there were such things as ‘kits’. Sounds like a good idea.

  2. Gorgeous, we might take this on in December 2014! Love your blog, great ideas. You have inspired us to buy a new Christmas book each year from now on. Happy new year!

  3. Awesome gingerbread house! I love the Australian look :)
