Is it possible to cut one of those outdoor straw carpets?
I bought an outdoor straw carpet (they dry quicker) on the balcony. And it's a little too wide and a little too long. I was trying to figure out how I could possible make it fit. I know part would Be to just fold the sides.. but I was wondering it there is an easy way to cut it or will it all fray apart?

you Can try cutting the matt
But you may end up taping the perimeter to keep it together. Gorilla tape might do it.
It will fall apart if you cut it unless you sew the edges.
Truly, fraying will not be a problem unless the edges are getting traffic.
You do not need to bind the edges in order to make a clean cut--just be sure to use a super sharp blade, and a metal straight edge held down quite firmly.
NOTE: Please do not let your fingers creep over the edge lest you taper them (I have done that, and it is just as much fun as you think it is).
Hello everyone, thank you for all your assistance.
