Talented Woman Turns Thousands Of Starburst Wrappers Into A Delicious Dress

That old saying "turning trash into treasure" is usually used quite loosely, because the people who say that are usually doing something like refinishing furniture or renovating a house.

But crafty seamstress Emily Seilhamer wanted to see if she could literally turn trash into treasure so she collected over ten thousand Starburst wrappers and turned them into a sweet dress.

Here's how Emily created her kooky and colorful Starburst dress:

I’ve been saving Starburst wrappers diligently (with the help of friends and family) for 4 years to create this dress. After enough were saved I organized them into colors, ironed them, folded them into links, and made candy wrapper chains.

With the use of elastic thread, I was able to sew the links together into a “fabric” to create the dress. My husband and I met when he offered me a pack of Starburst a few years before the project started. As his favorite candy he began to save grocery bags full of wrappers for me… The dress had a nice spot next to the gift table at our wedding almost 2 years ago!

First wallpaper and now Starburst wrappers- what can't Emily turn into an awesome dress?!
