ball gown

How about junk modelling a ball gown style wedding dress for the bride?

You probably won’t quite manage the wow factor of these amazing dresses created by Rayona Visqueen, photographed by Michael Cline and John Cornicallo and featured on her blog,, but you can divide into two groups and make a dress each from a big box of fabric, net, ribbons, braids, bias bindings, feathers, clothes pegs, gaffer tape  and staples.

The bride to be chooses her favourite dress and the winning group receives boxes of hand made chocolates (though there will be enough for everyone!).  You get scrap material, glitzy clothes, braid, beads, feathers, net, plastic etc and some throw away cameras to take images.
