I made some yarn wigs for a Halloween party a while back. It turns out they are great for pretend play.

You need yarn, a few bits of fabric preferably felt, a needle with thread or a sewing machine and some elastic band.

The red wig was very easy to make just use an elastic band and yarn and make it like a headband with the yarn at the bottom part.

Second one needed a bit more work. Cut the yarn at your desired length. Split the yarn in two (mid lengh – don’t cut it). This would be the middle parting. Spread the yarn evenly and sew a strip of fabric to the yarn. I did two more raws on the sides of the parting then tied two bows.

A look at the images might help visualise how I’ve done it as I find it a bit difficult to explain.
