Here's an old, old Strip X-mas tree I built back in about 1975 or so... Long, long before ohnny Lightning came out with theirs... I had a HO scale drag strip set up in my basement for my HO slot cars... I made this one from a nail, pellets, styrene plastic, and the yellow heads from sewing straight pins !!!

I didn't notice what it was made from until I read your description. It's cool to see how creative we had to be before this kind of stuff became available. I wish I had some of my toy stuff from 1975.
