DIY Paper Towel Face Mask by Noreen (Rena’s Mom)
For more details and more pictures to make these masks yourself, you can go to my Mom’s tutorial:
This paper towel face mask is for people to use – the stuffed toy is used only to demonstrate how it is worn.
Because there is such a need for face masks, I found a way to have face masks without taking them from health care workers.
It uses paper towels and rubber bands. The rubber bands can be washed and reused and the paper towel can be thrown away after use.

These are strange and unsettling times – something most of us have never before experienced.
We all want to keep our families and ourselves safe, and one thing that may help is wearing a face mask.
Because we want all the manufactured face masks to be available to health care workers, we don’t feel comfortable using them for ourselves.
I have seen on Facebook and Youtube various ways to make DIY Paper Towel Face Masks, using just a paper towel, 2 rubber bands, and 2 staples.
