I personally like to layer a shield over my mask for my own peace of mind, and I wanted one that would be a lot prettier than the ones that have a giant medical warning label along the headband. So I did what any DIY gal would do - I made one out of a floral crown!
- A floral crown (I used this one)
- Floral wire
- A heavy duty hole punch
- A plastic shield sheet (I got mine here)
This is such a simple DIY! Just punch five holes along the top edge of the plastic shield piece, and then thread your floral wire through the holes and wrap it around the crown in order to secure it.
Make sure that the edges of the floral wire aren't going to poke you in the forehead - either by making them point away from your head or by covering them with floral tape. And that is literally it! You now have a floral crown face shield!
