This is a fairly simple DIY with cardboard, sequins, and rope. All you need to do is draw and cut each letter from the cardboard. You can print out a letter template too, if you wish. 

When the letters are ready, apply white glue onto the cardboard and sprinkle the sequins on. Tap off the excess sequins and set aside for them to dry. 

When they are dried, use a hot glue gun to attach them onto the string and hang it on the wall!
