To make my wig, I started out with a small grocery bag and folded it in to reinforce the head area that she would be wearing and to make it sturdy enough to hold the weight of creating height. I placed it around my daughter's head and gathered it snuggly then removed it and stapled it to that size. Next I began pulling out all those toilet paper rolls that I have compulsively saved for "some project" -proving to my husband who thought I was crazy for saving them - that ANYTHING is a future project waiting to happen - just trust me :). LOL. Then I started folding a bunch of magazine pages. I tore one out and folded it in half and then rolled it to about the size of a small cigar, taping each end to keep it closed. Once I had all my rolls both large and small, I heated up my hot glue gun and began to glue them onto my bag. I had to spray Kilz® on it to cover well because the toilet paper rolls wanted to suck up all the paint - and then I put a final coat of white paint over that. Lastly, I hot glued a large butterfly and some pearls to complete the look.
