"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

How to Make DIY Doll Hair

Yarn Wig Tutorial Instructions

  1. Take your yarn and place it at the end of your piece of cardboard.

    Note: Make sure to adjust the size of your piece of cardboard to coincide with how long you want your doll hair to be. 

  2. Begin to wrap the yarn all the way around your cardboard. The more times you wrap your yarn the thicker the hair will be, and the fewer times the thinner it will be. 

    Pro Tip: It makes it easier for you to end wrapping your yarn at the same end you started it on. 

  3. Trim off the end of your yarn. Slide off all of the pieces of yarn off of your cardboard. 

  4. Wrap a piece of scrap yarn around the center of your yarn, and tie a really tight knot. 

  5. Use your scissors to cut the loops your just made in half. 

  6. Flip your hair cluster on the head of your ornament or doll, and part your hair the way you would like it. Then, sew the hair in place.
