Easy No-Sew DIY Face Mask with Bandana and Elastic Bands Video Tutorial

This tutorial is not intended to replace a medical grade N95 mask. But if you need a little protection around the house or don’t have access to better masks, this is better than no mask! You do not have to have any DIY or craft experience to make this mask. If you can fold a napkin in half, you have the skills required for this tutorial! And notice that the video tutorial is only a minute long – yes, it takes under a minute to make this easy diy no-sew face mask!

And if you don’t have the listed materials, you can improvise with other types of fabric and other ways to secure the mask to your face. Suggested substitutions are listed below. Stay safe and healthy! xoxo, Kristin

What you will need to make the Easy No-Sew DIY Face Mask

Note: I used a 22 in cotton bandana but you could also use a 22 in square piece of breathable fabric – or cut a square out of an old t-shirt or bed linens. If your ears are uncomfortable with the elastic, you could also add a ribbon to tie the entire mask behind your head to secure.

You could also add a filter to the inner folds of this face mask.
