How to Make a No Sew Face Mask

On Friday, the White House recommended that Americans wear “non-medical cloth” face coverings. This means that every time we leave our homes (when necessary) we should be covering our faces. Using a scarf to cover your nose/mouth suffices, but this is a more secure option.

What you need:

  • Square scarf or bandana
  • 2 hair ties or rubber bands

How to make it:

  • Lay bandana (or scarf )on flat surface.
  • Fold each end about a quarter length inwards.
  • Flip over maintaining previous folds.
  • Repeats same steps on this side.
  • Push hair ties (or rubber bands) onto each side breaking the bandana into thirds.
  • Fold over the end of bandana inwards sticking one loose end into the fold of the other.
  • Put mask over nose and mouth with bands around your ears to secure it.

Watch the below for a visual tutorial

Important Note: Be sure to swap out the scarves or bandanas you’re wearing and wash regularly!
