2 Ways To Make An Easy DIY Face Mask
This week, in another segment of our "No-Panic" live event series, our reporter Sharon McNary (known for her expert sewing skills) demonstrated some very simple ways to DIY your own face coverings.
Here we break down her two methods:
- The first method requires just a T-shirt and scissors. And if you have cardboard, you can create a stencil (it kinda looks like half of the letter H, but fatter). You'll place the stencil over a folded edge of the T-shirt and cut along it -- and voila, you have a mask. Skip to 4:26 in the video above for the full tutorial.
- The second way requires a bandana and two hair ties. After making a series of folds, you have the option of inserting a sort of "filter" into the mask for extra protection. Sharon suggests a coffee filter, or any other kind of nonwoven fabric. Then, you'll use the hair ties to keep the mask intact and hang it from your ears. Skip to 7:35 in the video above for the tutorial.
