In order to reproduce the tree I counted the blocks along the bottom. Our last name was long so it filled up most of the bottom row. My married last name is much shorter, so I added the year along the bottom of ours as well. I found the blocks for $4.99 at Tuesday Morning and I went to both Hobby Lobby and Michael's for the small ornaments that I wanted to use as embellishments. Most of those were half off, so the whole thing was around $10.00. I laid out the blocks to make sure I had all of the letters I would need. I arranged and rearranged the blocks until I had them the way that I wanted. Then I glued them using a hot glue gun. Once all of the blocks were glued in place, I used the little ornaments and ribbons to fill in the blank spots. I was really happy with the way it turned out and my girls loved having their names on it!
