Starburst Dress

Mom Makes Dress from Starburst Wrappers for Teen's Prom (Video)

Maybe you dreamed of a beautiful, designer-y dress for your prom. Maybe you even wore such a dress for your prom. Not this teen: she sported a frock of old Starburst wrappers to her prom. Made by her mom.

Wisconsonite Kerrin Frey crafted her daughter, Tara's, dress from thousands of bright paper candy wrappers, each one carefully folded (8 times!) and creased with a tweezer. Once prepped, the miniature wax papers were woven into a basket-like overlay for a muslin dress.

The project took 6 years.
