I’ve been saving Starburst wrappers diligently( with the help of friends and family) for four years to generate this dress. After enough were saved I coordinated them into colourings, ironed them, folded them into connects, and built candy wrapper chains.

With the use of elastic thread, I was able to sew the links together into a “fabric” to create the dress. My husband and I satisfied where reference is offered me a pack of Starburst a few years before the project started. As his favorite candy he began to save grocery bags full of wrappers for me … The dress had a nice place next to the gift table at our marriage almost 2 years ago!

A total of 10 000+ Starburst candy wrappers went into it

After enough were saved I organized them into colours, ironed them, folded them into connections, and constructed candy wrapper chains

This is how it looks from behind

Ironing each wrapper flat before folding

By painting underwear elastic to match the colours of the wrappers I was able to seal the edges and insert a zipper

Can’t forget the matching shoes!
