L.A. Artist and photographer Christine McConnell is known for her love of horror, which can be clearly seen in designs of her terrifying cakes. Besides that she often loves to adorn her parent’s old-fashioned home on different occasions. This holiday season, she has given spooky Christmas makeover to the same house by decorating it with some DIY creations inspired by gingerbread cottage from Hansel and Gretel fairy tale.
She has hand-painted various foam-core boards to look like realistic candy cane columns and gingerbread gravestones on the lawn. Two ghostly figures are hanging around the front window of the house, moreover nylon rope is strung across the house’s roof to seem like wonderful icing on the gingerbread house. The whole eerie makeover is done to make the house appear like the candy-infused witch’s lair from the classic story.
McConnell spent a week of 15-hour days for preparing and finally applying the decorations on the house. Not only that, but she even designed wicked witch costume for herself, and asked her niece and nephew to dress up as Hansel and Gretel for the fascinating photoshoot. The photograph of the fully-adorned Christmas house appears to be an iconic scene coming straight out of the fiction.
Previously, she transformed this lovely abode into the frightening Monster House for Halloween. Now her unusually enticing Christmas decoration is also grabbing all the attention.
While people spruce up their home with merry ornaments and tinsel for Christmas, the gothic artist’s unconventional theme is surely breaking the rules. Plus, there’s no denying that McConnell’s Christmas house looks absolutely gorgeous and ready to set a new trend. It will surely upstage all the neighboring holiday lighting and decor this holiday.
