The content creator and self-taught artist who goes by the name of My Art on social media shared a video where he was seen installing wallpaper.

When he suddenly reached the electric outlet, he pulled out his trusty pocket knife to cut the wallpaper in a criss-cross motion where the outlet was.

He proceeded to then cut around the edges, using a plank to make sure it was a straight line.

After he was done cutting, a perfect square was left in its place with the outlet peeking through.

Not only can this hack save you tons of time and effort, but you won’t have to remove the cover from the electrical outlet to get the job done.
