Ohio teen makes prom dress out of duct tape

Meet Kelli, she made her prom dress and even her accessories out of duct tape.

The teen started making this duct tape prom gown her sophomore year of high school.

She says got the idea after attending a Girl Scout camp where they did a duct tape art craft.

Kelli also made a full tux out of the tape for her date, along with coordinating shoes for each. And she even made a corsage and boutonniere.

"I have a lot of hours in it. Each picture on my dress is actually hand cut out, and all the stars are hand cut out, so most of the time is in just playing with the duct tape, literally," Kellie Brinkman said.

Kellie may get to cash in on all her hard work.

She's entered her dress in duct tape's "Stuck At The Prom" contest.

It challenges students to create their prom dresses, tuxedos and accessories out of duct tape.

The winner gets a $5,000 scholarship.
