Mask Chains

I haven’t done a craft post in awhile, and as the gifting season is here, I would like to share this easy 2020 inspired accessory – the Mask Chain! Yes, apparently it’s a thing, and while I had my initial doubts (I despise glasses chains), the mask chain has turned out to be decidedly practical….
