There are plenty of tutorials online giving step by step instruction on how to fashion your own mask if you have a sewing machine. However, if you do not have a sewing machine, this Indianapolis Personal Stylist can help you make one at home easily.

First find a scarf or a bandana that isn’t too long or thick. Then, fold it inward twice depending on the width. Next, slip two hair bands on each side of the bandana. Make sure the hair bands you use have enough stretch to them or else it will be too tight or too loose around your ears.
