Two things: how romantic and what patience! A Pennsylvania woman has made a dress from more than 10,000 Starburst candy wrappers given to her by her high school sweetheart-turned-husband. Wow!
Emily Seilhamer is an artist and upcycler –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 says that “anyone’s an artist if they’re willing to try.”
