Step 14: The Pig Pen and the Laundry Line with Sweaters!

Picture of The Pig Pen and the Laundry Line with Sweaters!
This bit was rather fun.  In the original image of the house, they had a pig pen at the side.  I made a lot of long  thin pieces out of gingerbread that I had used for a lots of things, including tabs on the roofs and porch posts. I turned these on there side to make the pig pen. 

The Sweaters are probably my favourite part of the whole thing. I wanted something on the house that would really reflect the Weasley's DIY creativity, and I loved her knit sweaters, so I decided to make a Laundry line with the entire Weasley Families Christmas sweaters on it. 

They were very easy to make. I just rolled out some really thin gingerbread, and used my paring knife to kind of eyeball a sweater shape. I baked them, then used a fine paint brush and brown food colouring to give them there details.  I used a licorice shoelace for the laundry line and a candy stick for the laundry post.
