Hi Does anyone have any advice on how to put words on a steep slope? I think gravel would be good but I don't know how to get them to stay on the slope. I can post pics if needed.

Place gravel. Scoop out letters in the gravel. Pour liquid cement in the grooves and over that sprinkle coloured sand. Let it dry atleast for a day. Then gently sweep off.Whatever loose sand that is scattered will be swept away. The sand stuck to the cement will highlight the letters. Good Luck.

Could also build forms out of wood or plastic

i never paid attentiion since i hadn't thought of something like that, but i wonder if one of those places that sells concrete lawn ornaments might have letters.

Big rusty metal letters would look great. Maybe there is a metal works company that might do it for you. My son works for a metal works company and they have done some specific things for us. I don't know whether it's a matter of "who you know" but maybe it's worth a try. Just as thought!! Good luck with your (y)project.
