Veggie lodge or Veggie "Gingerbread house!"

Pinterest won't pin on facebook and I found this on GREEN GIANT's facebook page. Here is how they did this:

 Here is what we used to make our veggie lodge:...

Six 8"- carrot logs (One for front, five for back)
Eight 5"- carrot logs (sides of lodge)
Eight 3"- carrot logs (front)
Eight 1 1/4" - short spacer logs (by front door)
Four 1 1/2" - carrot logs (to create side window opening)
Three 7" -carrot log rafters

Sixteen 6" - 7" long stalks of celery (for roof)

The foam core board gable ends measure 8"x 6" x 6"
The foam core board floor/base measures 8" x 5" (plus extra on the back for chimney if desired)

The window is made out of a slice of turnip.

Use toothpicks if necessary, in addition to cream cheese mortar to fasten cucumbers and celery.
Use bamboo skewers for stacking chimney mushroom "stones."

This looks easy, healthy and fun! Have forwarded to my daughter for a nice alternative to a sugar-filled gingerbread house!

It may look easy............it is not! Two hours of prep and then after several hours of struggling we gave up.....pinterest fail
