Fall is in full bloom and that means decorating with burlap. I don’t know about you, but until recently thinking about cutting a piece of burlap has made me cringe. Just thinking about the mess to clean up and all those little fibers everywhere-ugh! I want to show YOU a trick to Cutting Burlap Without The Mess.
Since I have been preparing for a wedding this coming Friday, I have needed burlap. While I was purchasing the dreaded burlap, the girl cutting it showed me a tip to solve my burlap misery!! I thought I should share it with you-a few of my burlap loving friends.
It really is as easy as 1,2,3.
Here we go:
Measure and decide the size of the piece you need.
Start pulling a thread that will be just right for your measurements.
Keep pulling it though. The burlap will gather. Keep pulling it though. Your thread might even break. Just find the end and keep pulling.
When you are done pulling your thread, this is what your burlap will look like. You will have a space in-between the thread.
This is your guideline as to where to cut for a straight, non-messy piece of burlap.
Voila!! Straight, no mess and ready for your decorating pleasure.
Simple, huh? I love this tip-it has cut my cleaning time to a minimum. I hope you can use this tip while in the midst of all your Fall decorating. Actually-anytime.
