DIY: No-Sew Face Mask

You will need:

  • a handkerchief or bandana
  • two rubber bands or hair ties
  • a coffee filter or paper towel
  1. Start with a handkerchief and two hair ties. Rubber bands are okay as well, although they will be less comfortable.
  2. Fold the handkerchief in half, along a horizontal axis, and make a nice crease.
  3. Place a piece of paper towel or a coffee filter at the center of the handkerchief. Fold the top down and the bottom up, so that the coffee filter or paper towel rests in the fold.
  4. Place your first elastic about one-third of the way in from the edge of the handkerchief. Place the second elastic one-third of the way in from the other side. The two elastics should be about one hand-width apart.
  5. Fold the left side in toward the center and then fold the right side in toward the center, tucking the right side into the left-side flap.
