MAKEOVER MONDAY - the milk carton (part 1)

it's not too late to make a gingerbread house....

in our home, charlie (3 1/2 years) + i decided to make new york city dwellings (the most festive city during the holidays, i think).

three in all: tribeca loft, gramercy park high rise, single family manse on the upper east side.

the frustal décorista in me cleaned out milk and cream cartons to build our city - frosted with good ol' duncan hines in a can.

graham crackers fashioned the facade.

embellishments included peach rings, sprinkles, marshmallows, dots, twizzlers, sweet tart candycanes and one lone peanut m+m for each doorknob (we chose to eat the bag!).

it's not too late to whip up your own creations for your holiday tablescape.

got milk?
