Don’t rush out to the store for face masks when you can find alternative methods at home by up-cycling other items!

Here I made myself several masks from my daughter’s no-longer-used Gerber burp cloths. These burp cloths are 100% cotton, tightly woven and already sewn in double and/or triple layers!

What you will require:

  1. Gerber burp cloth;
  2. 2 elastic bands;
  3. scissors (to cut burp cloths in half);
  4. less than 7 minutes

Step 1

Cut the burp cloth down the centre of the longest part.

Step 2

String one elastic band on to each end of the burp cloth.

Step 3

Fold the ends of the burp cloth over the elastic bands to hold them in place and tuck the ends neatly towards the centre once folded.

Step 4

Place up to your nose and mouth, put elastic bands around your ears to hold them and you are all set.



I made these because I still have several of my daughters burp cloths around; she is now 2 years old so far past that stage. However, if you would like to make them and do not have burp cloths I found some on Amazon and the link is below:

Good luck, stay safe and God bless!
