IKEA Canada Has Free Instructions Available For Making Adorable Gingerbread Furniture

What if you could build a chair and then eat it? IKEA Canada is making that a reality with instructions for gingerbread furniture.

They include the BILLY bookcase, JOKKMOKK table and chairs, and MALM bedframe.

You also get to eat any extra pieces that you might end up with during assembly.
