Ways To Get Involved
✨WAYS TO GET INVOLVED✨
Our Magic Makers volunteer their time and money to:
💖 CROCHET BEANIES AND ACCESSORIES
If this is your first time crocheting for The Magic Yarn Project, please mail in a two sample beanies for feedback before investing more time and money. Not every beanie can hold the weight of the yarn we attach for hair. We use Caron Simply Soft for most of our beanies. The specific colors needed are always included in our Wednesday What We Need FB post or below on our Sign Up Genius. If there are no beanie colors listed, Caron Simply Soft Black, Chocolate, Harvest Red, Sunshine and White are always needed.
💖 DECORATE ENVELOPES
Each wig is mailed with a card decorated to coordinate with the character of the wig. The current needs are on the Sign Up Genius.
💖 BEDAZZLE SILK FLOWERS
Our Rapunzel and Moana wigs take about a dozen flowers each. Right now we need 100s of small (less than 2″ in diameter) flowers in shades of purple and pink.
💖 MAKE WIGS
If this is your first time making a wig, please mail a sample in for feedback before investing more time and money into additional wigs. Don’t crochet? Contact me to get approval to receive wig kits. The kits only include the crocheted accessories. You are responsible for remainder of the materials. There are directions for creating the wig stand and yarn cutting board on the webpage (click Make Wigs) or Walmart.com has a wig stand tripod for about $14. Hobby Lobby sells 21″ foam heads or I can send you the Amazon link. The elastic is on Amazon, search 1mm elastic cord.
💖 HOST WORKSHOPS
Experienced wig makers may apply for approval to host wig workshops in their area. I would LOVE to see more Magic Makers hosting workshop!

💖 CURRENT NEEDS
Our chapter posts all current needs on our Sign Up Genius page. This allows Magic Makers to indicate what projects they are working on. There is a tab (or dropdown menu from a cellphone) for Wig Workshops, Completed Wigs, Crochet, Flowers and Envelopes. The Slot Number refers to the number needed. During the sign up process, you will input the quantity you plan on donating. For donations, you may always send extra. For example, you signed up for a quantity of 10 Rapunzel tiaras, but sent in 20.
Many new Magic Makers find it helpful to send me pictures along the way for guidance. You may send those through FB messager or email email@example.com
