Wig Craft – How To Make a Doll Wig Out of Yarn

Craft Supplies:

  • Yarn
  • Scissors
  • A jar (size depends on how long you want your hair, bigger the jar longer the hair)

Step #1:

Wrap your yarn around the jar numerous times. The more you wrap the more hair your wig has.

Step #2:

Carefully pull all the yarn off the jar. You should have a circle of yarn. Be sure not to let it unravel.

Wrap a small piece of yarn around one side of the bundle.

Step #3:

Opposite of where you tied the yarn, cut the circle apart. 

This should give you the wig! This is how to make a wig and yarn doll hair.
