    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.

    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.
