Make a Wig

  1. Choose a Magic Yarn Wig tutorial to watch/make.
  2. Make a wig-specific Magic Yarn Beanie (or sweetly convince Aunt Deb to crochet one for you).
  3. Collect supplies (listed on tutorials) and get your craft on (although there is no craftiness required)!
  4. Before you lovingly give your wig away, please make sure you go over our Finished Beanie-Style Checklist.
  5. Send us your magical creation! We receive wig requests from all over the world and need your help creating enough wigs!!!

Cutting Board

  • The pegs are made from cut 7/8in dowel rods and screwed into a 1” X 6” board.
  • Zoom in to see the peg distances for each wig style.

Wig Stand

  • Once all the yarn has been attached to the beanie and you are ready to style the wig, it is so much easier to have a stand to place the head on.
  • Most 21” circumference foam heads have holes in the bottom that will fit a ⅞” wooden dowel.  
  • We place this wooden dowel into a 4” X 6” block of wood with a hole bored into it and then place the foam head onto the dowel.  The thickness and weight of the wood block keeps the stand upright and steady as you work with your wig.
