The folks at @ccemcanada are getting in the holiday spirit by creating a teeny-tiny gingerbread house on top of a teeny-tiny snowman. Together, both decorations are hardly taller than a human hair. https://t.co/8fFc9RSDBA pic.twitter.com/hb0qgHvQJF— McMaster University (@McMasterU) December 18, 2019

Decking the halls is a whole lot harder when you’re decorating something 10 times smaller than a human hair.
But that didn’t stop Travis Casagrande from going big this holiday season by constructing something super tiny.
“Compared to the size of a typical gingerbread house that you might buy in a grocery store kit, mine is 20,000 times smaller,” he explained.
