How to Make a Homemade Face Mask
Making your own face mask is not as difficult as it may seem. Whether you’re crafty or just looking for a quick and cheap way to make one, you can create a quality homemade face mask using the following easy steps:
Step 1: Gather Your Supplies
You will need the following supplies to make your homemade face mask:
- 2-3 sheets of breathable fabric
- Needle and thread or fabric glue
Step 2: Cut Your Fabric
Cut your fabric into two rectangles. The size depends mostly on the size of your face, so measure your face before starting. Generally, for adult-sized masks, 8 inches by 3 inches is a good choice.
Step 3: Attach the Elastic
Sew or glue the elastic to the sides of both fabric rectangles. Make sure to leave some extra elastic at the ends so you can adjust the face mask to fit your face better.
Step 4: Fold the Fabric
Fold the fabric in half lengthwise, so that the elastics are on the outside. You will now have a long rectangle with elastics on the sides.
Step 5: Sew or Glue the Sides
Sew or glue the sides of the face mask together. Be sure to leave a hole at the top so you can insert a filter or other material if you like.
Step 6: Wear Your Mask
Once you’ve finished your homemade face mask, it’s time to wear it! Make sure to adjust the elastics to fit your face properly and that the material is not too loose or too tight.
That’s it! You have now successfully created a homemade face mask!
