Many people say expensive wedding gowns are just money down the toilet.

How about making one out of something you’ll find next to a toilet?

A West Bloomfield woman designed a wedding gown made out of toilet paper that could earn her $10,000.

“Hey there is a silly contest out there and I saw it and I was like ‘I’m going to enter.’”

That’s how Susan Brennan first entered into the 14th annual Toilet Paper Wedding Dress contest.

Susan is on a “roll,” entering a total of seven times and winning three.

This year, she made it in the top ten that could “wipe” the competition.

“Really intricate, just single strap kind of simple, little Bohemian looking, details on the straps and the bottom is full of these flowers that kind of look like lace.”

It’s hard to believe that the dress were made entirely out of toilet paper.

“You can use tape, glue, needle and thread, and that’s it.”

She even made some matching earrings.

It took Susan a little more than a month, $50 and only 19 rolls of toilet paper to create it.

“Yeah, not as much as you think,” she said. “Buy one package and you can make a dress out of it.”

The winner will be announced in New York on June 20th.
