How to make a NO SEW DIY FACE MASK - $0 Quick & Easy Tutorial

14 682
1 500
If you're all out of masks and/or can't find any in stores, make your own. This DIY mask uses materials that you probably already have at home. Overall, there is disagreement about the effectiveness of masks, but I think that if you must go out, something to cover yourself is still better than nothing, and at the very least, it will remind you to not touch your face/nose so much, and remind you to stay vigilant. Please note that this does NOT prevent you from getting ill, but what it DOES do is add an extra layer of protection only.

Put oil into nostril before mask. Oil kills virus.

What is the point of using paper towels that you presumably could breathe through and lining it with other paper that you cannot breathe through? Granted that this could reduce the danger to others, but doesn't reduce the danger to yourself as you would be breathing through the side openings. Not trying to be mean and I admire your using your knowledge in origami to help, but don't understand the intent.

you can also use coffee filters in the place of the looseleaf paper just cut to size...great idea for the mask...thank you !

This mask is useless! You can't breath adequately through notebook or printer paper, so each time you inhale you'll just be pulling in unfiltered air around the edges of the mask. Forget the regular paper towels and the notebook paper, and use two layers of blue shop towels instead.

You should not have put the notebook paper between the paper towels. You can't breathe through that kind of paper. Also, the mask is too small to cover the nose and the chin as much as it is supposed to.

Surely, if the foil fits to the skin, all the way round, you won't be able to breathe, because air doesn't pass through metal. Who writes this stuff?!

I'm SCREWED! I was on a Ventilator for a long time 3 years ago which ruined my lungs. I had ALWAYS been healthy til my Cancer and Coma from the treatment I was highly allergic to. Now have 2 Lung Disease's and Severe Asthma cause of the Ventilator. I can't leave my 🏠 at all til this is over or I get a hazmat suit.

Love the mask concept. Simple and you use things many people would have already. But paper inside not a good filter or breathable. Would place fleece or maybe hepa filter material for inside instead. Also I hate rubber bands. Shoe laces, ribbons, hair ties work just as well. Blessings

Who can breathe through a sheet of paper? That will not stop the virus coming in. She never showed how it fits. If it's not tight to your face all around it's no good

I’m using a folded blue shop towel inside a regular mask and just throwing away the towel after each use. Reusing the mask. Washing it every now and then. I heard blue shop towels filter pretty good. And you can still breathe through it. Company is using them to make masks as a matter of fact.

Too much messing around and you can't breathe through copy paper - Fabric and needle and thread works better and does no take as long - and can be washed and reused - This is a really dumb idea

Is the paper hard to breathe through, and do you have to make a bunch of these, I can imagine the paper towel gets moist up against your nose and face. It could end up growing mold.

This mask is going to be absolutely useless. The paper will not let air through so you are just inhaling unfiltered air from the edges of the mask. This is just going to give people a false sense of security and make things worse.

I don't mind this idea but people buying out all the sanitary pads to make facial masks knock it off. We women need them and they R hard to find right now.

I applaud your efforts but it takes too much time or too many steps to be practical. This kind of mask is for only one use and needs to be thrown out after one use as it obviously cannot be washed and reused. But nice effort none the less. I do suppose that if one were to cut up all the necessary pieces in some kind of bulk process, then perhaps this could be workable.

Hi Don, I have another tutorial with fabric that can be washed, reused, and takes about 30 seconds to make:

While you cannot breathe through sheet paper, the fold across the middle of the mask creates a channel for air to flow through both layers of paper towel. Slick bit of origami/engineering.

A really good no-sew mask is to cut the bottom 3-4 in. from a toddler t-shirt, fold it up a bit and just stretch it over your head. No rubber bands, ties, etc. to worry about.

If you cut a hole in it and cover with a piece of vacume cleaner bag (mine are hepa) you have a filter you can actually breath through.

This is a very nicely done video. You give very clear, precise instructions. As I saw what you were doing, I stopped the video and went for some paper towels and foil. As I watched I made it with you. I was really hopeful for this design.
BUT did you know that that sheet of paper in the middle will filter almost 100% of the air from reaching you? That you will not have any air to breathe, except for what sneaks in from the sides? I think I took it off just in time!
Then I made one without the sheet of paper inside. I also folded in the sides, with your zig-zag Z fold for better shape, then made a channel for a rubber band on each side, taped them closed with a rubber band inside and a couple of staples in each corner to hold the folds.
This seems to work ok, but now my glasses fog up as I exhale.

How can it be $0? Bounty sheets, Reynolds aluminum foil and rubber bands? Are you stealing from a university or place of work? So cheap!

This is designed to be an output-barrier mask against your own spittle, not an input-filter against particles in the surrounding air. And, while we're correcting others' designs, this word, "breath," rhymes with "death", and this word, "breathe," rhymes (approx.) with "teeth".

Make it out of canvas, several, so you can throw it in to hot, clorox water, every night. Or iron the mask after dry. Staple the fold-over/or strings.
