It's that time of year again, prom season. While many are rushing out to buy the perfect outfit, others are taking a more creative route. They are designing their own prom outfits, and the materials they are using may surprise you.
Prom is as sweet as candy - literally – A Wisconsin mom thought it would be a good idea to design her daughter's prom dress out of Starburst wrappers. The entire creation took a total of six years to produce. The crafty mom also made a matching vest, shoes and handbag with the same material.
Dazzling in duct tape – An Ohio teen and her prom date found themselves in a sticky situation. The two showed up at prom decked out in matching duct tape fashions. Kelli Brinkman says she came up with the idea after attending a duct tape arts and craft camp with the Girl Scouts two years ago – and the idea just stuck.
