A teenager in Michigan has put together a truly sweet prom dress. Diane McNease made her dress out of Starburst candy wrappers.

It took about 18,000 wrappers to make the corset of her dress, as well as matching hair bands and a purse. Classmates helped her collect them all. It took about five months to make.

She says she came up with the idea when she saw a friend folding some wrappers.

It was a big hit at her prom this past weekend.
