Tree Skirt to Table Runner

I've had this tree skirt for maybe 6 or 7 years and I really love it. The problem is, we repainted our front room green 3 years ago and I haven't used it since. But, I just haven't been able to get rid of it. For some reason each Christmas, I pull it out with the other decorations, remember we don't use it, and then pack it away at the end of the season. This year, I was thinking about making a winter table runner and realized the fabric of the tree skirt would be perfect.
It took some strategic planning to cut all the pieces out of a circle, but I was able to get all that I needed.
I found some inexpensive blue satin and used it for the lining (instead of the original blue lining) and a border and then trimmed it with some silver ribbon.
Now, I have a pretty winter table runner.
And I can quit pulling out that tree skirt every year!
