Simply mix some white glue with a bit of water to get a runny
consistency. Soak your twine (I used jute) in the glue mixture for about
five minutes. Lay down a sheet of waxed paper and spell out your word.
I wrote out the word beforehand on the wax paper using pencil, then
followed the markings with the twine.
Let dry on a flat surface overnight and carefully peel away the waxed
paper. If you have a few areas where the twine didn't quite stick
together on an overlap, glue it down with hot glue.
