  1. 1

    Place the wig cap over a styrofoam head or ball that is the size of a human head. Purchase styrofoam heads or balls at your local crafts store. Wig caps are available at beauty supply stores.

  2. 2

    Cut strips of yellow yarn approximately 10 inches or longer in length, using fabric scissors.

  3. 3

    Take three strips of yellow yarn and knot them in half. Do this for all the strips of yellow yarn.

  4. 4

    Place the tip of the glue gun to the knot of the yarn and apply a small amount of glue. Place the knot on the wig cap and press with the tip of the glue gun for a few seconds to hold it in place. Repeat this step for all the knotted yellow yarn until the entire wig cap is covered.

  5. 5

    Wear the yarn wig as part of your scarecrow costume, or place it on the head of your homemade scarecrow.
