Cardboard letters were 50% off making them a dollar each and a roll of jute was around $5, cheaper with a 40% coupon.
A few hot glue sticks and your set.
The T is the easiest and the A takes a bit more time. On simple straight areas you just need to secure the first bit of string and then wrap, when you get to longer areas use a dab of glue here and there, to help keep it even and more secure.
Pick a back side to help hide your extra glue and have less stress over wrapping perfection.
That way you can focus on the look of one side that will show while being more practical on the other.
The edges of the letters a bit of a pain, not because it is hard but you need more glue which just makes it more messy. I just put glue on and did a coil type wrap for these. With the E and A or any other odd letters you use for your word, you may have to do several starts and stops, a little gathering on curves etc in order to make it work. Any time you switch up your string flow be sure to secure well.
At only a buck a piece I may go and get more to have as templates for large letters too. The ones at Hobby Lobby are very nice and sturdy and should hold up well.
