Winning look: Actress Anne Hathaway arrives at the Oscars red carpet on Feb. 24.

While Oscar-winner Anne Hathaway got mixed reviews for her pale pink Prada gown, her sparkling jewelry was coveted by all. Hathaway's chunky floral necklace hails from Tiffany & Co., which means it's likely a pretty penny.

How can you get the chic stunner on a budget? DIY expert Kristen Turner of Glitter 'n Glue explains how to easily assemble your own red carpet look:

Materials:

  • Buttons
  • Brooch closures
  • Safety pins
  • Chain
  • Lobster claw closure

I have to admit I cheated a little: I got lucky and stumbled upon these mini brooches, but don’t worry if you can find any because they’re easy to create. You can compile a collection of your favorite rhinestone buttons, and earrings are also a good alternative. You can pick up basic brooch (or bar) pins at your local craft store (here). They come in a variety of sizes.

Simply remove the shank from the back of your button and use a little E6000 to apply the pin. Allow some time to dry and now you have your mini brooches!

TIP: If the clasp of your pin is not secure and you’re worried about your brooch opening, apply a little glue to your closure to prevent it from opening.
