The Golden Globes just passed, the Oscar nominations have been announced, and the SAG awards are this weekend. We’re in award show season people! Which means everyone will be huddled around the television screen to see who wore it best, who came with whom, and who won the awards! If you’re all going to be together anyway, why not make it a party? Here are some fun DIYs to create just in time for your award viewing party!
Feel like a star with this award-themed photo backdrop from SheKnows! Are you ready for your closeup?
Award season is when stars bring out the BIG bling. Although it may not be Cartier, this rhinestone necklace from Glitter n’ Glue is most definitely red carpet worthy. The best part is that you can rock this neck ice while wearing pajamas and you’ll still look fabulous!
These drink tags from HMH Designs are perfect for making all of your guest feel super special! We’ll take a handful of the Mrs. Clooney ones please, and hope for the best.
These confetti dipped balloons from Studio DIY are one of our favorite DIYs when party time swings around. We LOVE them! They aren’t specifically for awards shows, but you can customize the colors and confetti to fit whatever theme you’re going for!
These little Swag Boxes made by Kristi Murphy are the cutest sendoff for party attendees. Why should celebs have all of the fun? Fill each box with delicious treats, and tie them up with a satin bow!
Which of these crafts will you be including at your viewing party, or will you be watching the award shows solo while DIYing? We would love to see your ideas for the upcoming events!

Watching Red Carpet events always makes me want to get dressed up for no reason, I fall in love with elegance and glamour on the red carpet. Beautiful statement dresses with simple jewelry pieces or simple dress with dramatic jewelry pieces. I have to say my all time favorite look was Angelina Jolie’s at the 2009 Oscars. She wore a simple but beautiful Elie Saab black dress with stunning emerald Lorraine Schwartz earrings. It’s amazing what jewelry can do for any outfit.
Here is my inspired Red Carpet Earrings, made from Swarovski Rhinestone Buttons
Step 1: Take pliers and cut the shank off the back of rhinestone buttons.
Step 2: (Optional) File down the back of button, making it smooth
Step 3: Glue earring backs to the back of rhinestone buttons with E6000 (let dry for 30mins)
Step 4: Ready to WEAR!
