Share your wreaths and gingerbread houses!

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I'm super proud of my wreath and tree, and pretty happy with my house. So I came to the forum to show them off, expecting to find existing threads. I may have overlooked the ones for wreaths and gingerbread houses, but all I could find is one for trees. So I decided to start one for the other two. Sorry if I derped and missed an existing thread. x.x

Isn't it glorious? It's such a beautiful chaos. XD I'm still tweaking my house, so I'll post that in a bit when I'm done with it. Show me your completed wreaths and houses! I want to see what other people did. There were far too many assets to use more than a fraction of them even with that kind of crowding, so I'm eager to see how others chose to use their options. :D

 

EDIT: I think I might be done with my gingerbread house? Dunno. I'll probably keep tweaking it until the end of the event in small ways. But it's basically done. I'm really proud of my "rose" on the door and the "vines" climbing the front walls. And my sprinkle-y roof.

My house.

 

that what my house looks like after I remade it today....i forgot to take a picture of what it looks like before. XD

 

My Wreath

^That is my wreath I made from 2011, I'm thinking of actually tweaking or maybe remaking it, I dunno.

 

edit: so my link might work now.

yey it works now! :D

Huh, why not...

 

My Wreath

 

My Gingerbread House

 

It was pretty hard for me to stop remaking them :D I'm really glad that as a player who joined on 2014, I got the chance to play all those games from earlier Holidays. It was fun!

I made my wreath back in 2011 and I'm perfectly happy with it so I didn't touch it in this event, aside from making some very small adjustments that I then discarded as I decided to just leave the wreath as is. My gingerbread house, on the other hand, got a complete makeover. I know I might've... overdone the decorating a bit, but there were so many pretty decoration options I wanted to use... I tend to do that a lot. I look at an already pretty full design and think "That still looks a little empty, let's throw in some more stuff!"

All candy-based minigames are the first takes for me:P

I'm just not sure of my house's 2 top hard-candy rows but whatever else I place there doesn't look any better to me - wish there was a larger meringue sprite, that's what I'd like on the top the most^^;

I mostly wanted white-red on gingerbread plus some greenery and animals, but I liked the tiny sprinkles near the top of the roof.

 

Also, didn't touch my 2018 fort, I hardly made it last year (couldn't spawn one crystal where I needed but it finally appeared somewhat near the end - tbh this event should be re-played first exactly because of the decorative resource spawns. I actually expected the previous fort's replay coming because of that, and the 2018 in the future years:P).

Everyone's trees are so beautiful! I almost used a snowflake theme on my tree, but I ended up not. I am sooo happy with this year's event - I missed the original tree decorating and always regretted it, so here is my first ever TREEEEEEE

 

And here is my WREATH! I'm super proud of the blinky stars! Originally I did a thing where I tried to use every decoration at least once. It was cool, but very busy. I like this one a lot more 😃 Especially the blinking pattern :D

 

Here is my GINGERBREAD HOUSE! It originally had a red-brown-snow theme, with decorated cookie trees in the yard and poinsettia vines on the house. I couldn't get the trees to layer right this time, so I replaced them with poinsettias and changed the color theme. My little story behind this design is that the house belongs to a Holly dragon, and all the hatchlings are coming over for a holiday celebration.

 

And here is my SNOW FORT! Originally I had a large castle with a log cabin and gingerbread house, each with their own separate yard. This time I made it a little more complicated, there's a park where Snowas are building snow creatures, a forest where the white reindeer are hiding, and the Script and Aegis dragons have each built their own fort and are preparing for battle.

I love everyone's wreaths and gingerbread houses!

It was my first time doing both, and I went for a subdued (but slightly rainbowy) look for the wreath and for a somewhat traditional look for the gingerbread house.

Left my wreath how it was when I first created it back in 2011 https://dragcave.net/wreath/rinoa26

 

But totally glad I finally was able to redo my gingerbread house. My gingerbread house was undone as I thought we'll have a day more for decorating.

Might not be the prettiest but I wanted to do more than just simply decorating (as I did with my tree and wreath): https://dragcave.net/holidays12_house/rinoa26

 

@Caerhann I like how your gingerbread house looks. Don't know why but it reminds me of a swiss cuckoo clock 🤐

Haha, I have no idea, either, but thanks! ^_^ I like your wreath and gingerbread house as well! That dragon is really cute!

I left my gingerbread house unchanged from how it was in 2012, but was happy to do the wreath since I somehow missed the event in '11.  Both are very minimalist compared to many of your creations! :lol:

 

Particularly loved @Caerhann's gingerbread house and @oilbird's wreath from this thread. ^_^

I decided not to change my gingerbread house, although I was tempted to experiment, I didn't want to lose what I had. https://dragcave.net/holidays12_house/MessengerDragon

But I'd never done a wreath before, and that was fun! I drew a bone in the top-left corner, and centrepiece is a cupcake aflame! =P https://dragcave.net/wreath/MessengerDragon

 

Edit: @Lurhstaap here's the link to your house, the one you've got in the first post links to a user's own  house, whoever looks at it. @Fly-by-Night In case you were curious and wanted to see, but didn't figure out how to change the link. https://dragcave.net/holidays12_house/Lurhstaap I like the idea of smoke coming out of a chomney chimney! (typo there but it is too amusing for me to remove it completely)

Aww, thank you! I can honestly say that your gingerbread house is one of my favourites! I guess we just like them simple, haha.

Sure why not!

 

My Tree

 

My Wreath

 

Both of these are a bit on the plain side I know. But I am not good at decorating either of these I'm afraid. ^^;

 

My House

 

It's simple but cute. At least to me. ^^;

 

My Snow fort

 

In comparison to what it used to look like, I find this much better. ^^

https://dragcave.net/tree/catstaff - my tree, redone with a rainbow theme.

 

https://dragcave.net/wreath/catstaff - my wreath, pretty plain. Hated my old one, but not really pleased with this one either.

 

https://dragcave.net/holidays12_house/catstaff - my gingerbread house, slightly tweaked from before; I'm especially proud of the butterflies visiting the climbing roses.

 

https://dragcave.net/holidays18/catstaff - and my snow fort, also slightly tweaked from before but no major changes.

 

There's some gorgeous creations out there! Wish I'd thought of some of those ideas for myself!
