You Can Get An Ornament That Looks Just Like Your House

Wow! These miniatures are so cute and detailed!

There are many unique ornaments with which you can trim your Christmas tree. But a tiny version of your house might just put the hominess factor over the top.

Samantha Bravoco of the Massachusetts-based Etsy shop Forever Figurines specializes in intricate, miniaturized versions of people’s real homes. Ornaments cost $79, with about half that amount required as a deposit.

Customers send Bravoco photos of their homes and other details they would like included, and she creates a version the homeowners can hold in their hands.  Ornaments are made of polymer clay, painted with acrylic paint and coated with a finishing gloss.

The details on the figurines are quite amazing. Take this lovely two-story wood and brick house, posted to the @shopforeverfigurines Instagram. Bravoco included everything from the carriage doors on the garage to the wreath on the front door and the potted plants on the front steps.
