Well let’s face it, the world has become a different place to live basically overnight. As per the latest recommendations according to the CDC, if you’re lucky enough to leave your house, we should be wearing a face mask wherever we go. Well if you jump online and look for one you will be in the same boat as the rest of us. They are nowhere to be found. If you are lucky enough to find a face mask, you’re most likely looking at a wait time of well over a month. We all hope that this starts to subside within a month and people need masks now. Instead of waiting on a manufacturer to come up with a solution, these crafty DIY’ers have taken things into their own hands. These are DIY face masks that are amazing. They are something we all need to think more about. If you are a crafty and creative person. Take a little inspiration from these pictures and see what you can come up with! They say that necessity is the mother of invention and that shines through here in these weird and unprecedented times we are living. Take a look!

It’s so weird to me to think that this is the new “normal” but I’m happy to see that people around the world are taking it seriously. We all want things to go back to normal but times like this bring out the best in people. People are embracing their creativity, their passions and we are all learning new things. These masks are only the beginning and as more time passes I assume that we will see many more. Let the masks go to the front-line responders and try out a DIY mask yourself. What can you come up with?
