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. Need accessories?! (tiaras, flowers, starfish, and snowflakes)
  5. Before you lovingly give your wig away, please make sure you go over our Finished Beanie-Style Checklist.
  6. Please send your wig(s) to your nearest Region Leader! We receive wig requests from all over the world and need your help!!!

Name Stickers

🌟Please help us by sending in stickers (with your name/city/State) along with your wig(s)! Blank sticker name tags or labels work perfectly for this. We can easily add the stickers to the greeting cards instead of handwriting everything out! 1 sticker per donated item. Please Please Please!!! 😊

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.
  • Want to purchase a pre-made stand for about $12-15? Search Wig Stand Tripod on or
  • 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.
