It had a metal top which I took off
my husband cut out all the gingerbread pieces,
after they were painted
he adapted them to a wood circle to serve as the cover
He has a real knit scarf and hat!
His coat has real heart shaped buttons!
His pocket is filled with goodies!
I made the pockets from homespun
stiffened them with glue diluted with water
He has some snow on his clothes, hat and scarf!
He is one of my favorite pieces....I leave him out all winter
I have made several of these cookie jars as gifts
filled them with Italian cookies or chocolate truffles
