  • You can buy mesh patches at walmart, Lowes, anywhere really....they are a little sticky and will adhere to the wall...cut it to about half inch bigger than the hole all the way around. Apply and cover with joint compound....sand until smooth. Paint.

  • There is no way to save burnt wallpaper if it actually burnt a hole through it.....if it is just singed, then try scubbing it w/ a toothbrush using a lemon juice & baking soda paste to take the burnt color out.
