At a more informal or rustic wedding, chairs can be covered in burlap sacks and tied with raffia.
If the idea of simple blue and white curtains doesn't appeal, try using woven bamboo or burlap.
Spread out the burlap, and arrange the pattern piece on the fabric.
Natural wood, woven baskets, burlap sacks, fabrics such as cotton and jute - these natural, organic materials are a part of any safari and translate well into the home.
For example, you could apply a brick, canvas, burlap, or sandstone texture to a design to give your paper added depth and dimension.
