My daughter loves to dress up. When she had her eye on a princess wig at the store, I knew I had to get handy and make my own. Yarn works much better than plastic hair and I think it looks a lot sweeter on this little child of mine.
If you knit, this is the perfect way to use up all those yarn scraps. First, Emma and I got strands of yarn together. We cut each of them double the length Emma wanted her hair to be.
I wrapped the pipe cleaners around her head and twisted the other ends together so I would have the right size to fit her.
Next, we tied yarn all around the pipe cleaner crown, leaving just enough room for her face to show through.
