DIY Mask from an Old Hanky

Savings is my middle name. I usually don’t spend a lot. Not that I have a lot to spend but frugality is just something I feel very comfortable with.

It’s for that reason that I love to recycle. I recycle food, clothes, or anything that is possible to recycle. So when I saw this video on how to make a face mask out of a scarf, I just had to try it.

A Simple DIY Mask

The video below was sent to me in one of my Viber groups. It’s a very useful video and I give credit to the headless lady who went out of her way to teach how to upcycle a scarf into a mask.

So, being the frugal person that I am, I gave it a try. There was no way I was going to hoard on masks. Number one, they were getting too freaking expensive and number 2, there weren’t any available. If there were any, they were pretty expensive.  So, I go back to number one. Hence, the video was heaven-sent. Again, shoutout to the headless lady in the video.

I didn’t have any scarves available. So, I thought my son’s school hanky would suffice. However, when I looked at, it, I thought it was pretty small. Nonetheless, I gave it a try. I figured, why not?

I’m glad I gave it a try because it turned out pretty well.

Easy Steps

I have listed down the steps below with corresponding photos. Believe me, the steps are pretty easy to follow. You only need a hanky and a pair of elastic bands. In my case, I used my son’s hanky from school.

Step 1. Spread out the hanky as seen in the photo.

Step 2. Fold hanky in half.

Step 3 Adjust the bottom part depending on how wide you want the mask to be.

Step 4. Take the two elastic bands and slip each one on each side of the hanky.

Step 5. Tuck the sides as seen in the photos below.

There you have it. That’s the inside of the mask. It’s all set to be worn now. One thing I can say is that it snugs pretty well to the face. Hope this simple DIY is useful. Shoutout to that headless lady in the video.

Have you tried making your own mask?
