PB Inspiration~Starfish Table Runner

I saw this pattern on a bedding set in the Pottery Barn catalog and loved it a first sight! Very Beachy! I love Beachy!
I didn't want to create an entire comforter though!
I have a lot of left over Home Depot drop cloth material pieces from making slip covers for my couches. So, I decided on making a simple, table runner. I like the raw, casual edges!
I dug through my old craft paints....
Oh, BTW, I just added these new turquoise mercury glass votive holders to my collection, from Big Lot's. $2.40 each! They look like the PB ones! But I digress...........
Anyhoo, I started out using a regular starfish.
Right away didn't really like the way it was turning out....
so I improvised by tracing the starfish on a thin piece of craft foam.
I glued a cork to it with Gorilla glue. This finally worked out really well and I might make some other shapes!
