2 easy DIYs for your Oscar viewing party

These DIY stirrers/skewers are the perfect addition to your Oscar Night Party! Okay who am I kidding, they are the perfect addition to any P-A-R-T-A-E. So without further ado, shall we get started?

Here are the step by step tutorials for these Oscar party ideas:

Gold Glitter DIY Skewers


1. Small wooden letters (I bought mine at Michaels)
2. Elmer's clear glue
3. Gold glitter (or any color you prefer)
4. Toothpicks
5. Glue gun

1. Apply glue to only one side of each letter
2. Cover each letter with gold glitter
3. Let dry for about 10 minutes
4. Remove excess glitter by picking up each letter and tapping against a hard surface (can get a bit messy so designate a confined area)
5. With a hot glue gun apply a bit of glue to the other side of each letter and attach toothpick
6. Allow 10 minutes of drying time

DIY Stirrers


1. Star shaped cut out
2. Binder clip
3. Scissors
4. Gold construction paper (or any color you prefer)
5. BBQ Skewers
6. Straw
7. Glue gun


1. Google star shaped images
2. Using your at home printer, print your "stencil." My star image was roughly 3 inches wide.
3. Clip star "stencil" to construction paper
4. Using scissors cut out stars as needed. Note that you will need two per stirrer.
5. Using a straw to measure, cut skewers to exact length.
6. With a hot glue gun, apply a bit of glue to the back of one star and attach skewer.
7. Lastly, apply glue to your second star and ensure to align both stars as best as you can, creating one stirrer.
8. Repeat process until you have your desired number of stirrers.
