Gingerbread House Templates to Download For Free

I’ve been making a few templates for little gingerbread houses, so I decided to go ahead and create a single page where I can add a central hub for links to the new ones as I draw them. Feel free to download them for yourself, and if you want to send photos of the finished products I’ll add them to the posts!

When printing these, make sure that the pattern is showing completely on the page and change from landscape to portrait if needed to print it correctly!

The links will take you to each page, where you’ll get the templates and some tips for making each design.
