Dress made from Starburst wrappers

by frugalista on May 18, 2010


Ok, give Team Reuse/Re-purpose two points! A North Carolina teenager made her prom dress out of Starburst wrappers. You know Starburst…the candy! I think the dress is super adorable. I could see her winning a Project Runway challenge.

From the article by reporter Tiffany S. Jones of the Greensboro News & Record:
(Kelly) Henriksen, 18, made her dress from duct tape, masking tape and about 450 individual wrappers and 20 packages of Starburst candy.

Waste not, want not!

Do you like the dress? Do you re-purpose anything? I cut my old jeans into shorts. That counts, right?
