Creating a wig for a Blythe doll can be a fun and rewarding process. Here is a step-by-step guide to making a Blythe doll wig:

Materials Needed:

  • Wig cap or stretchy fabric (like nylon or a pre-made doll wig cap)
  • Synthetic hair wefts or yarn
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Sewing needle and thread
  • Comb or brush
  • Measuring tape
  • Pins (optional)


1. Prepare the Wig Cap

  • Measure and Cut: Measure the circumference of your Blythe doll’s head and cut a piece of stretchy fabric to fit snugly around the head.
  • Sew the Cap: Sew the fabric into a cap shape, ensuring it fits tightly on the doll’s head. Alternatively, you can use a pre-made doll wig cap.

2. Attach the Hair

  • Cut Wefts or Yarn: Cut the hair wefts or yarn to the desired length. For a fuller wig, you may need several wefts.
  • Glue the Wefts: Starting at the bottom of the wig cap, apply a line of hot glue and press the hair weft onto it. Continue this process, layering the wefts upwards until you reach the top of the cap. Ensure each layer overlaps the previous one slightly for a natural look.
  • Creating a Part (Optional): If you want a part in the wig, leave a small section at the top and carefully part the hair before gluing it down on either side of the part line.

3. Style the Wig

  • Trim and Shape: Once all the wefts are attached, trim the hair to the desired length and shape. Use a comb or brush to style the hair.
  • Secure the Hair: For extra security, you can sew the wefts into the cap at strategic points using a needle and thread. This will help keep the hair in place and prevent it from shifting.

4. Final Touches

  • Adjust Fit: Place the wig on your Blythe doll’s head and make any final adjustments to ensure a perfect fit.
  • Style: Style the hair as desired, using water or a gentle hair spray to set the style if necessary.


  • Practice: Making wigs can take some practice, so don’t be discouraged if your first attempt isn’t perfect.
  • Quality Materials: Using high-quality synthetic hair or yarn can make a big difference in the final appearance of the wig.
  • Experiment: Don’t be afraid to experiment with different hair colors, lengths, and styles.

By following these steps, you can create a custom wig for your Blythe doll, giving her a unique and personalized look.
