Colin Hanks Shows How to Turn a Bandana Into a Face Mask

Colin Hanks is showing fans how they can make their own face masks at home out of a bandana or kerchief!

The 42-year-old actor took to Instagram and provided step-by-step instructions on what to do to transform the bandana into a mask.

The CDC now recommends the “use of simple cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others. Cloth face coverings fashioned from household items or made at home from common materials at low cost can be used as an additional, voluntary public health measure.”

“Hey everyone. I’ve been looking around online for ways to turn your kerchiefs into a face mask. It’s pretty easy. All you need is one kerchief (or bandana roughly 21 x 21 inches) and 2 hair ties or rubber bands if you have those. Here are the steps…” Colin wrote on his Instagram.

Here are the steps below:

  • 1. Lay your kerchief face down.
  • 2. Fold the top down to the center.
  • 3. Fold the bottom to the center.
  • 4. Flip the kerchief over and fold the top to the center.
  • 5. Fold the bottom of kerchief to the center.
  • 6. Put hair ties on both sides of kerchief.
  • 7. Fold outer sides of kerchief to center. This is the part that faces your mouth.

Amazon still has some bandanas left for sale, but act fast as they’re being sold quickly.
