First she cut squares for the walls and made the roof out of a meat tray. She painted them all light brown so they looked like gingerbread. She then used a hot glue gun to put the walls and roof together and attached a variety of candies to the house.
Laurel made a snowman out of a pine cone that she had painted white. She created a hat and scarf using felt. She painted a pine cone green to look like a Christmas tree and decorated it by gluing on more candy. She also made a Santa in the chimney using a pine cone. She used a bead for his head and felt for his hat. His beard is made from a cotton ball, his arms are made out of pipe cleaners, and she cut his mittens out of blue felt.
Laurel explained, "This took me all day to do... I enjoy crafting and coming up with my own ideas."
