And the Oscar goes to…YOU! The 88th Annual Academy Awards show airs February 28th and it is always full of glitz and glam. Other than watching the red carpet trends, my favorite part of the night has to be getting together with friends for a fun watch party. So this year I thought I would share my tradition with you all! Oscar Party decor is so much fun to play around with, and any worthwhile Oscar event would not be complete without its own DIY Oscar statue.
To plan your own Oscar Watch Party, start by creating your guest list and sending out your invitations. Hop over to this post to download our tres chic (and editable!) glittery gold invitations. Of course, gold is a natural choice of color scheme for an Oscar Party. Use the template below to create your papercut awards to set out onto your tables or give as party favors for your guests. I have included a PDF for those who are hand cutting and an SVG for anyone using their cutting machine. I picked up a pack of glittery metallic card stock from Michaels and I have loved all the colors that it comes with. If you’re looking to just make this DIY Oscar statue, feel free to opt for the individuals sheets instead! Use the template to trace the Oscar shape onto your card stock, and then cut your slits down the center of the body to put the 3D statue together. When he’s all assembled, your DIY Oscar statue stands at 10.5 inches tall. What a man!
Stay tuned for some Oscar Party games that I’ll be sharing with you soon! Oscar ballots? Oscar Bingo? Yes please! And don’t forget to share photos of your glamorous Oscar Parties with me!
