How to Cut Burlap
Cutting burlap this way gives you a nice clean cut and eliminates straggly edges.
- Use a spray bottle filled with water to lightly dampen the burlap before you cut it. This helps prevent some of the dusty mess.
- Want to get out some of the wrinkles? You can iron burlap on medium-hot heat. Wrinkles still not coming out? lightly mist with water and then iron.
- Hate the smell? Spray burlap with perfume, Fabreeze, or body spray. You may need to reapply occasionally.
