This Woman Made A Dress From Over 10,000 Candy Wrappers, And The Item Made Her An Internet Star

Even as a youngster, Emily Seilhamer had a knack for upcycling. In fact, it was the candy wrappers that she started saving as a 12-year-old that would become the basis of a project in her adult life. But it was worth the wait, because when she unveiled a dress that she had crafted from more than 10,000 Starburst wrappers, Seilhamer found internet fame.

Seilhamer is a 25-year-old artist from Pennsylvania. She works as an activities assistant at a nursing home rehabilitation center. And in her spare time runs a group called Connecting in Color, which hosts art-based activities in painting and crafts for groups and individuals at all levels.
