A Surname Christmas Tree

A most distinguished genealogy blogger, Randy Seaver, issued a challenge to show him a Christmas tree made of our surnames.
This is a tree with all my direct ancestors:

I created a custom report in Family Tree Maker 2014 that included only the name of my direct ancestor.  I exported that list to Excel, removed the first & middle names, removed the duplicates, 'spruced' it up in Word and here it is!

Thanks, Randy, for the idea!
