How To Make A Face Mask Using A Sock

Did you know that you can make a simple, no-sew mask using adult socks?

We already know that you can make a mask out of a bandana.

And, we know that you can make a mask out of leggings.

BUT, now people are making masks out of socks, and I FINALLY have a use for all the single socks laying around my house!

These masks are SUPER SIMPLE to make. Are you ready?

Here is how to make a mask out of socks.

You need a CLEAN adult sock, and a pair of scissors to complete this mask.

Lay the sock out flat on a table.

Cut off the toe section. Just that toe part, that’s it.

Then, you cut down the length of the sock on ONE SIDE only.

Next, you make a small slit about halfway through the sock on one end.

Repeat by making a small slit in the other end of the sock.

That’s literally it. You have just made a mask. The holes go over your ears. Tuck the excess fabric in.

You can make it EXTRA “safe” by sticking an extra filter in there.

I would NOT recommend a paper towel, but instead try squares of cotton fabric, a CLEAN coffee filter, a cut vacuum filter, a shop towel, or even a folded up bandana inside for extra protection.

You want to be able to breathe, but the more filtration you have in there, the better.

Make SURE the filter you are using does NOT contain fiberglass!

This masks might not be beautiful to look at — or they could be, depending on the sock — but they are definitely better than not having a mask at all.
