Emily Seilhamer, who runs the Artistry and Upcycling Facebook page, carefully sewed the wrappers together into a 'fabric'.

Emily's choice of the fruity sweet came after her her now husband gave her a packet of them when they first met.

As reported by The Mirror, on the social media site, she wrote: ''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 organised them into colours, ironed them, folded them into links, and made candy wrapper chains (sic). With the use of elastic thread, I was able to sew the links together into a 'fabric' to create the dress.''

She explained how the colourful dress played an important role at her wedding.

She added: ''As his favourite 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!''
