Making your own mini doll can be both rewarding and enjoyable. If you choose to sell the dolls you make, it can be very profitable for you as well. A doll wig adds the finishing touch to your mini doll. Making your own doll wig allows you to select the hair colour, length and texture of your personal preference and saves you time and money on purchasing ready made doll wigs as well.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Poke a small hole in the bottom of the sandwich bag with your finger and pull the doll's head through the hole like a barber's cape.

  2. 2

    Gently pull the viscose hair off the weft and stack them so that the ends are all even.

  3. 3

    Fold the strands in half over you index finger. Spread the strands evenly along your index finger so there are no gaps between the hairs.

  4. 4

    Place the fabric glue in the fine tipped syringe. Draw a line with the glue along the centre of the strands.

  5. 5

    Place a straight pin along the glue line and flip the hair over the pin. Pinch the hair on either side of the pin to set the glue. Gentle and quickly slide the pin out from under the hair.

  1. 1

    Draw a line with the glue on the doll head starting from the front hair line ending at the crown of the head. Line the glue line on the doll hair up with the glue line on the doll head and attach the hair to the head.

  2. 2

    Lift both sides of the hair up and apply glue to the rest of the doll head from hairline to nape. Press the hair against the glue to seal.

  3. 3

    Blend the hair at the front and back of the head so no scalp is showing and style as desired.

Tips and warnings

  • Apply glue sparingly to the doll head and hair to prevent the glue from seeping through all the strands.
  • Use caution when using the fine tipped syringe to avoid puncturing your skin.
