Guess What These Stunning Wedding Dresses Are Made Of…

These stunning dresses were made using toilet paper and loads of creativity.

It’s every girl’s dream to walk down the aisle in her dream wedding dress. A girl will search high and low for that perfect gown. Unfortunately, not all females have enough budget to get the princess gown that they’re dreaming of.

Stunning gowns often come with designer prices…or so we think. These beautiful dresses can pass off as expensive couture creations when viewed from the runway. What’s even more amazing is that these dresses cost peanuts because they’re actually made from toilet paper.

The vast potential of toilet paper

You read that right. Cheap-Chic-Weddings.com holds a yearly contest for designers to create gorgeous wedding gowns using Charmin toilet paper. The designers used tape, glue, needle, and thread to put the dresses together. Charmin is also a sponsor of the event, which got almost 1,500 entries from aspiring designers. For this year, the winning design will be used as inspiration for a ready-to-wear gown to be made by Kleinfeld Bridal. This year’s winner is Donna Pope Vincler and she was also given $ 10,000.

This Guy Builds An Awesome Hut Using Only Primitive Tools And His Bare Hands!

Using nothing but his bare hands, primitive tools, and natural materials, he builds this impressive shelter. By the time he’s finished, there’s even a fireplace with chimney!

The world has become digital in all aspects. Whether it be ordering your food or getting a hotel reservation, everything can be done with a touch of a fingertip. While modern technology has numerous benefits to civilization, it is still important to not forget the simple kind of life because it is through the primitive that our advanced living is shaped and based.

We found this video of a man, who amazingly built a hut in the middle of the forest using nothing but naturally-occurring materials. From stones as ax and sticks as lighter, nothing looks modern in everything he used. According to the YouTube description of the video, the hut is two meters in width and two meters in length. The side walls are one meter and the highest point is two meters with a triangle-shaped roof standing with an angle of 45 degrees.

The video may be long but it is sure worth watching! From the foundation of the hut to the fireplace with chimney, the way he created a humble abode with only his bare hands is awesome!

Despite this ordeal, this didn’t stop him from appreciating the beauty of wilderness in Tasmania. In fact, he graduated from the University of Tasmania with a degree in furniture design.

Inspired by outback wilderness, the furniture designer uses light in his creations to help him convey how he sees the world. Meerding’s most popular creation, the cracked log lamp, emits soft warm light from its cracks.

"My furniture is obviously influenced by my vision impairment but I want it to be nice to look at, nice to touch. I don't want it to be bought out of sympathy but because it is good."...
