These Creative, Crafty Prom Dresses Are Completely Homemade

Prom night has become a terrifying experience for many. The events are so serious that it's a never-ending competition to be the best dressed and to look absolutely individual.

Some folks get around this by spending hundreds (or even thousands) of dollars on outfits that are designed for them. Others are far more creative.

That's what we'd like to share with you today. The efforts of awesomely creative kids who, in the years to come, are bound to be leaders of the fashion industry. Check out these prom dresses made from materials that you'd never believe were possible to make dresses from.

1. Garden Lights Made Her The Brightest At Prom

This is a cunning idea. Take a lacy number and then carefully adorn it with garden lights (using a battery, not a power cord). Shine on.

2. Taking Things To Their Roots

Pinterest

This girl went with a stunning Afro-centric number which would have made her stand out for all the right reasons on the dance floor.

3. A Little Paint And A Little Tape

Pinterest

This may look like an expensive fabric dress, but it's actually made entirely of duct tape which was spray painted in silver and gold.

4. The Ultimate In School Recycling

Pinterest

This is the best way to deal with all the textbooks that you won't be needing again after you leave school. Turn them into your prom dress!

5. The Card Shark's Favorite

Pinterest

You can't be gambling with them if your girl's now wearing them. This amazing looking dress is constructed from nothing but playing cards.

6. The Warning Signs Are There

Pinterest

Well, warning tape anyway. This dress is put together using "caution" tape that we assume has been carefully checked so it doesn't stick to the wearer.

7. The Hottest Date Of The Prom

Pinterest

Can it get any hotter than a dress made out of Starbucks cup holders? It's so elegant looking that it's hard to believe it's not in a shop window.

8. Going Green

People complain that nobody ever recycles coffee grounds, but what about coffee filters? Well, it turns out that you can make a dress from them.

9. The Mad Hatter's Favorite Number

Pinterest

This girl's dress not only looks incredible but it is incredibly made out of tea bags! We just hope she didn't spill water on it.

10. The Best Use Of Tax Forms Ever

Pinterest

Take the most hated piece of paperwork in America, the tax form, and then shred it carefully. You now have the raw materials for this awesome dress.

11. That Duct Tape Great Gatsby

Pinterest

Yes, much of the dress and nearly all of the suit have been made from that reliable medium of duct tape. It should have held together for the dance no problem at all.

12. Today's News Is This Dress

Pinterest

It's amazing what you can do with materials, and this dress made entirely of old newspapers demonstrates how a budget shouldn't limit anyone's attendance at prom.

13. The Bubble Gum King And Queen

Pinterest

Both halves of this couple are wearing items that they constructed from nothing but gum wrappers. We bet that they were minty cool at prom.

14. The Pop-ular Girl

Pinterest

This dress needs a little closer inspection—it's made from the pop tabs on soda cans. It must have been a little scratchy to wear.

15. The Flowery Frock

Pinterest

Yes, this prom dress is made from real flowers. Not only did she look amazing but she smelled fantastic too. It's a truly lovely frock. 

It just goes to show that all you need is your imagination and a little hard work to have an amazing prom night.

17. Cunning Use Of Cardboard

Pinterest

It doesn't look like it, but this dress is completely made from cardboard and a little glue. We hope no one spilled their drink on it.

18. A Dress That Isn't Garbage At All

Pinterest

This cute number is the combination of garbage bags and the most useful home product of all time - duct tape. We hope she didn't catch any hair in it.

19. The Great Taste Of Starburst

Pinterest

This girl's prom dress is completely made out of Starburst wrappers. We hope that next time she makes one, she invites us over to help prepare the raw materials.

20. We'll Drink To This Idea

Pitnerest

You'd have to drink quite a lot to make this dress. It's a bunch of Capri Sun drink packets that a sum far greater than their parts.

21. We Hope She Doesn't Pop Out Of This

Pinterest

Of all the materials on earth to make a dress out of, who would have thought of bubble wrap? This redheaded lady, that's who. She pulls it off with aplomb.

22. She Made The News!

Pinterest

She also wore the news. This dainty number is made up of old newspapers. It must have been quite heavy when they were all put together.

23. She Got Her Chips Down On This One

Pinterest

If you love to snack, then you could definitely do worse than design a dress made of Dorito's wrappers and this charming young lady demonstrates.

24. She Went For The Trashy Look

Pinterest

We love this. It's a dress made entirely of garbage bags. We like the way she's inflated them to make it feel like a ball gown.

25. Pikachu Is Here For You!

Pinterest

The young lady who made this is too shy to model it for the camera, but we think it's awesome all the same.
