Homemade Hollywood Decorations

Throw your own Hollywood party with a few do-it-yourself decorations that will

make all of your guests feel like A-listers. Most of the props necessary can

be found at a variety of quality and price ranges, so you can make it work for

your budget. Throw in some trendy hors d'oeuvres and a star-worthy gown and

you'll have an event your friends will be talking about for years. Hold on to your

decorations and you can make it an annual shindig.

Skill level:

  1. 1

    Visit a home supply store and ask for any scraps they have of red carpet. Cut

    the scraps into three foot-wide strips and line them up length wise with a carpet

    razor. If you can't find carpet scraps, or you want to skip the cutting yourself,

    purchase a red carpet runner. There's no need to make it stretch the entire length of your sidewalk, even just a short strip on your porch or in your entrance will get the event off on the right foot.

  2. 2

    Purchase posters of life-size or almost life-size celebrities. Cut the silhouettes

    out of the poster and use the outline as a template for cutting out a piece of

    cardboard with the same dimensions. Glue the poster onto the cardboard. Tape

    the cardboard "celebrities" along your walls to make it look like a star-studded

    bash. If the poster you are working with is only the top half of a celebrity, cut it

    out and attach it to the cardboard backing, and then tape it's base to to a pair of

    trousers or jeans before taping it to the wall. You can let guests take pictures with

    the stars as well.

  3. 3

    Hang strings of clear blinking strobe lights along the walls to mimic the look of

    photography flashes.
