I thought it'd be cool to make a table runner for our table that sits on the patio.
I started with several pieces of paper from the Park Bench collection from Fancy Pants Designs. This project works wonderful for scraps. I choose to use 1.5“ x 6” and 1.5“ x 3” pieces and I laid out a subway, or brick pattern on top of a large piece of burlap. I adhered the pieces down and then cut the burlap around it.
Then I sealed it to protect it. The only sealer I actually had on hand was an antique sealer and I didn't really want to run to the store and buy a different one, so that was the one I used. :) So it yellowed it a bit, but I do love how it turned out.
We'll see how it holds up. I do have a covered patio, so that will help. :)
