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.

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



Wow, how coincidental is that? Still a neat story though, something different.[/LEFT]

Really cute video!!!

This family really takes re-purposing seriously. Hope Starburst gives them some cash for all the free advertising.

Saw that this morning from CNN and had to watch it twice! I thought the same things and absolutely loved that the daughter was so really excited about her mother's hobby!!

Her mum is extremely creative. I love her ideas. Nobody can think about such kind of work. It needs lots of patience and hard work. I like the dress. Pretty good!
