Clipping the Fir Trees for Christmas?

A tiny 15mm Peter Laing figure to give a scale idea of these fir trees.

More useful Christmas gifts, making the most of the riches of the season in the shops, are these rocky snow ‘deco sand’ stone lumps and fir tree clips.

The fir tree clips are from Sainsbury’s HOME range, designed as “present clips”, whatever they are. I saw their potential as 15mm size snowy pine trees, once removed from the wooden pegs. They have their own wooden bases but might need the heft of washer bases or penny bases.

The spare clothes pegs themselves have other household or craft uses such as tiny Clothes Peg WW1 biplanes that I featured last year:

The ‘deco sand’ rocks are probably crushed white quartz and come in two sizes, presumably for inertly holding candles or flowers. They should add well to my snowy landscape Scouting Wide Games.
