  • How to make a wig. Diy Scarecrow Costume - Step 1
    Step 1

    I made a short wig and a long wig with bangs. Both wigs are essentially constructed the same: you cut your yarn into several bundles of yarn that are the same length. Tie the bundles of yarn together in the middle with an additional pieces of yarn. The yarn securing the bundles will also be used to attach them to the hat, so be sure to leave a few additional inches.

    Using a tapestry needles, sew the tails of the yarn securing each bundle through the hat. For short wigs like the one I made, I placed the bundles all over the hat, adding bundles each time I found a spot where the stocking cap was peeking through the yarn. Here’s what the short wig looks like inside out, so you can see all the tails where each bundle of yarn was attached.

    For the long wig, which I styled with pigtails, you construct it just like the short wig. Instead of placing each of the yarn bundles all over the hat, looking for gaps in the yarn, you cut the yarn into long strips and attach them all along the stocking cap in a single line.

    And looking at the inside of the long wig, you can see the line where the long bundles are attached. You can also see that the bangs are made with short bundles of yarn, and they’re attached across the front, kind of like the short yarn wig.

    Really, making these wigs is just a matter of figuring out how and where to place the yarn to cover the wig. Super fun, cute and easy!
