Buttoned Headband for Masks - woman wearing the headband with a mask attached around the buttonsThis headband is helpful when you have to wear a mask for extended periods of time and don't want the pressure on your ears. Your mask's straps loop around the buttons near your ears. I originally made this for my sister who is a makeup artist and has to be extra protective for herself and her clients at work. I used an old t-shirt's sleeve for this headband so I could be matchy-matchy, but you can use any fabric headband you have on hand.


Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 1 headband

  1. If you're using an old t-shirt like me, cut off the sleeves. Otherwise, lay out your fabric headband.

  3. Cut off any excess from the sleeve and place it around your head. Use your pins to very carefully mark the area directly above your ear. This is where you will sew on your buttons.

I love your idea and love that you shared it with everyone. Thank you! My ear loops often fall off because of my eyeglass frames sitting on my ears.
