With only a bandana, coffee filter, rubber bands and scissors, you can create a DIY face cover. Find easy step-by-step instructions below for how to make a no-sew bandana face cover, or follow along with this video.
Also, make sure you’ve got a bandana (or a 50.8 cm x 50.8 cm square cotton cloth) and a coffee filter.
Fold the coffee filter in half so that it makes a semi-circle shape. Then, fold the bandana in half horizontally.
Place the coffee filter in the middle of the bandana, and fold the bandana into thirds. First, fold the bottom up.
Next, fold the top down.
Place two rubber bands around the ends of the bandana, about 15 cm apart.
Fold the ends of the bandana over the rubber bands towards the center and tuck the ends together.
Wear your face cover by placing the rubber bands behind your ears.
