Prom Dress Made out of Starburst Wrappers

For six years, Tara Frey of River Falls, Wisconsin, has been preparing for prom. She’s carefully made a dress, vest, bracelets, earrings, headbands, and shoes out of Starburst wrappers:

Tara’s mother would buy 20 bags of Starburst at a time to get the huge amount of wrappers needed to make the dress and the accessories. “The whole community gave us wrappers…My mom hand [Starburst] out to people and ask for the wrappers back, and don’t rip them!”

Miss Frey’s costume fit nicely into the Candyland theme for this year’s prom at her school.
