In your Halloween candy bowl today, which is there more of, candy or empty wrappers. If anyone has figured out a way to teach their kids how to dispose of the candy wrappers instead of just tossing them back in the bowl, please step forward and accept your award. Ha. I still haven’t figured out if kids do that because they’re trying to fool us about how much they’ve eaten, or is it to fool themselves into thinking there is still that much left!
But now that we have all of these colorful little bits of paper, what can we do with them? It seems a bit of a shame just to toss these colorful little morsels of sweet memories away. Well, after poking around on Pinterest, I found some excellent solutions from some other creative recyclers. The first being this awesome DIY candy turkey from Housing a Forest. Thanksgiving is right around the corner.
Bebelambs has made the art of the candy wrapper into her own brand. Visit her etsy shop. Give your size and candy favorites to order a beautiful gift for any little princess at the holidays. These are so adorable!
Here’s a little challenge. How about some tiny doll clothes for your little garden fairies. The details of this Mary Jane Dress from Andrea Mai Lekberg
OK. Hold on to your hat for the overachievers. I just love you guys! These are something to either strive for or just stand back and slowly take in.
The first is from “The Sweetest Temptations.” A prom dress designed by a young girl and her mom for that once in a lifetime memory. This is definitely a once in a lifetime dress. Beautifully done ladies.
And finally, for the craziest of hardcore recycled fashion designers, it takes two to Tango, and about 2000 wrappers if I had to guess. This is why I love the art. Gorgeous. Designed by Montalvo for the "Cease & Desist collection"
