Woman fashions dress from over 10,000 Starburst candy wrappers

Posted: Updated:

LANCASTER (AP) -- A Pennsylvania woman is making waves after creating a dress made from over 10,000 Starburst candy wrappers.

The wrappers are from Starburst candies given to her by her high school sweetheart turned husband.

Emily Seilhamer is an artist and upcycler  meaning she recycles items by creating new things out of them.

The Mount Joy Township woman posted a picture of her dress last week on her Facebook page, Artistry and Upcycling by Emily Seilhamer.

Seilhamer met her husband, Malachi, when he offered her a pack of Starburst, his favorite candy. He kept giving her the candies and once she told him she wanted to make a dress, he started bringing her wrappers, which she divided by their bright colors.

Seilhamer tells WPMT-TV that "anyone's an artist if they're willing to try."

No cavities resulted from the making of this dress.
