Picture of Weave Your Own Wig

Sometimes store bought wigs can be.... disappointing. The colors are limited, the hair falls out, they can't be styled with heat, and you can usually only part them in one place. There are tutorials online that can help transform a store bought wig, but they can only go so far. However, this tutorial will guide you through making your own completely customizable wig without all of the expensive equipment and materials.

Step 1: What You Need:

Picture of What You Need:

-Acrylic Yarn. It's important that the yarn you use is 100% acrylic. Which is good because that's the least expensive kind and it comes in every color. I used a $4 ball of CraftSmart yarn from Michael's.

-Weaving Cap. A fishnet wig cap would work too. Here's the one I used. It's durable and adjustable. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00QU9P3I4/ref=p...

-Thread. It's best if it matches your yarn.

-Thin craft wire.

-A brush. Wire pet brushes work best but an ordinary one works.

-Hairspray.

-Scissors.

-Flat Iron.

-Foam head or similar round object to hold your wig.
