We wanted to surprise the boys for Christmas by building an 8-bit Christmas tree. My husband made the actual tree out of 5/8 plywood and the ornaments are printed and foam-backed.

We pick up the boys tomorrow and we can't wait to see their faces when they see it! We tried to put something from everyone's favorite game on there. Recognize any of your favorites? Grin

Thanks everyone!  We had a great time making it.  It took about 35 hours total.  My hubster cut it out, (after drawing a 1"x1" grid on 4'x6' plywood) then he made them interlocking.  I painted it, and found some of the graphics and hubsters found the rest and made them all printable.  Then we backed them with foam. 

The boys get here tonight, and I can not WAIT for them to see it.  <3  I hope they love it.
