4 Years And 10 000+ Starburst Candy Wrappers Went Into This Dress

I’ve been saving Starburst wrappers diligently (with the help of friends and family) for 4 years to create this dress. After enough were saved I organized them into colors, ironed them, folded them into links, and made 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 met when he 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 spot next to the gift table at our wedding almost 2 years ago!

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

After enough were saved I organized them into colors, ironed them, folded them into links, and made candy wrapper chains

This is how it looks from behind

Ironing each wrapper flat before folding

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

Can’t forget the matching shoes!

Thank you :) Each wrapper needed folded about 6 times to make a single link so it was definitely time consuming!

I am SO impressed by your dedication! I mean, the dress looks great! But I wouldn't have the patience to see it through. Well done!
