Flashback 6 to 9 months ago, when I searched ‘diy face mask’ in Youtube, it came out with tutorials about making mud mask for the face – you know those stuff you mix and apply on the face to make you face glow and shine like a diamond? Yup.

But now, ever since this pandemic has changed the course of our life at the start of the year, ‘diy face mask’ in Youtube or Google, will now show you tutorials and diys on how to make homemade mask to cover nose and mouth to prevent the spread of the airborne virus. This pandemic also opened an opportunity for more Youtube tutorials and DIY blog posts hits to skyrocket and those who are lucky enough to have posted even before the virus started killing people, their posts have even more page views.

So since there are so many tutorials and information with regards to how to make your own face masks already available on the Web, I decided to just gather some of my favorites and share them with you.

These selections are not based on how many views they had, or how difficult or easy the project is. Neither are these selections based on acceptability on the medical field.

This curation is merely based on the final product design and features that captured my interest. The details on the mask are what matters to me, so I tried my best to share those that are a little bit more on the fashionable side yet still practical. This is in no particular order.

This is a fairly new tutorial on Youtube, but the design and details of this one are pretty slick! I like she provided a slot for removable wire nose-fitter and this one requires no bias-tape at all. Considering that the ‘Olson Mask’ is a pretty new term for me, this one hit me right off the bat!

5. Innova Crafts

This is one of the newer ones that came out in Youtube and probably the easiest surgical mask type face mask tutorial I’ve seen with this style. The thing that caught my attention is the color palette that they used for the visual presentation of the tutorial. I know, it sounds lame. But fashionistas, get me?
