What if could you take a holiday favorite that's typically small and turn it into a life-sized wonder? Well, that's exactly what Dickinson's Candy in Old Orchard Beach has done at their store, making it look like the coolest little clubhouse this side of the North Pole.

Shared on Facebook by Dickinson's Candy, take a good look at the detail put into this gingerbread house effort. In the video above, you can see the gingerbread shingles being added to the house, with Santa's sleigh hanging above. It's an incredibly display and it's available to witness in person at Dickinson's location at 42 Old Orchard Street throughout the holidays.

So how did they do it? Well, they started with a base to the house put together by the folks at Shed Happens. From there, it became all about the gingerbread. 480 pounds of gingerbread was used to put together this life-sized masterpiece. Along with the gingerbread came the gumdrops, a cool 225 pounds of those. Add in some frosting to make sure everything sticks together and voila, you have your very own life-sized gingerbread house on display.

Dickinson's Candy Factory can be found right next to The Pier in Old Orchard Beach and welcomes everyone to visit their unique gingerbread creation.
