It took Emily Seilhamer four years - and 10,000 Starburst wrappers - to make the dress.

A US woman has made a dress from more than 10,000 Starburst lolly 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 Pennsylvania woman posted a picture of her dress last week on her Facebook page.

Seilhamer met her husband, Malachi, when he offered her a pack of Starburst, his favourite lollies. He kept giving her the lollies and once she told him she wanted to make a dress, he started bringing her wrappers, which she divided by their bright colours.

Seilhamer told WPMT-TV that "anyone's an artist if they're willing to try".

No cavities resulted from the making of this dress.
