Prom dress woven from candy wrappers

RIVER FALLS, Wis., April 20 (UPI) -- A Wisconsin woman said she spent six years weaving her daughter's prom dress out of Starburst candy wrappers.

Kerrin Frey of River Falls said she started work on the dress for her daughter Tara, who is now a senior at River Falls High School, six years ago after seeing moms weaving gum wrappers at a hockey game, KARE-TV, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minn., reported Wednesday.

Frey said she lost track of the amount of wrappers she put into the project, which also included a matching vest for Frey's date.

"We even called Starburst to see if we could just buy the wrappers from them without the candy in them," she said. She said the company refused.

"It's going to be a little bit too much attention, but hey, she worked hard on it," Tara Frey said.

"Our theme for the prom is 'Candyland,'" the student said, "so kind of lucked out on that one."
