Roll out your gingerbread dough and cut out a cross, leaving the edges a little jagged. Since I am able to put things into my styrofoam base, I put a wire into the dough before I baked it. If you forget, that’s okay. Just add the wire to the back of the baked cross using royal icing to attach it. After it was baked, I added some white icing coloring to give it a weathered look.
I wasn’t too thrilled with the effect, so I painted over it with some brown. Later I added the words “keep out” in black royal icing.
Insert the wire into the styrofoam and you have your sign!
