I have a new favorite DIY project, and his name is Oscar. (Or, in the case of our now running office joke, Rocky. Say in a Rocky Horror voice. Get it? Yes, we're dorks.)

Anyway, for our #OscarUp tomorrow night, I decided to try and figure out how to make an Oscars statue from a Ken doll and some gold spray paint. And I'm ridiculously proud of how it turned out!

Check out the entire how-to complete with step-by-step photos over on DIY Boston today, and hope to see you on our red carpet tomorrow night!
