You could cut them out of large sheeets of white foamboard insulation. Use a projector to project the letter  shapes onto the foam sheets, then cut them out with an electric carving knife.

@aenriquez311:  What about very medium to thick corrugated cardboard covered with white posterboard or white posterboard?

 

You could use regular corrugated cardboard or you can get very heavy duty corrugated cardboard here?!

 

Double-Thick Corrugated Sheets & Pads

Or-You may be able to use heavy type foam?

Then glue:

The foam board is a good idea.  Go to your home improvement store like Lowes/Home Depot and buy the larg insulation foam sheets (they are 8′ by 4′ I believe).

 

I’ve done the large cardboard numbers from http://ohhappyday.com/2011/08/how-to-make-a-number-pinata/ 

and I just paper mached them over and painted (instead of a pinata look).

@aenriquez311:  I meant the 4’x 8′ sheets you get at the home stores.

@aenriquez311:  I would just buy the thickest foamboard they have.
