Red Carpet Dress Designs: Oscar-themed projects to make with kids


As you follow the stars along the red carpet, encourage your fashionista tweens to create Oscar-worthy dress designs of their own!


Scraps of paper, fabric, ribbon, etc.


Glue or double sided tape

White paper

Printer (optional)



Step 1: Print out the outline of a mannequin from the Internet, or draw your own. I printed mine from Printable Colouring Pages.

Step 2: Cut strips of paper, fabric, etc. and layout on top of your mannequin to create a dress.

Step 3: Glue pieces into place. Embellish with glitter, sequins, etc. as desired.

For even more fun : Have kids take their designs to their closets and/or dress up boxes and challenge them to create real-life versions of their designs and model in their own version of the red carpet walk!
