After Christmas Tree Find

Each year, my wife and I do some after Christmas shopping. She is looking for wrapping paper for next year and I am looking for terrain leftovers from stores selling Christmas villages. This was a good year. At Menard's, I found two packages of birch trees at 50% off. I picked up 18 trees for $13. I'm quite pleased. I'll need to add foliage, but that's easy.

  1. Excellent find, Mike. They'll work well for winter scenarios as is, too!

    1. That's funny; the first thing I thought of when I saw these was Eylau. Maybe I'll put foliage on the brown trunks and leave the white ones bare.
