One milligram is 1/1000th of a gram so you would need 1000 milligrams to make one gram.

If you would like to visualize how much this really is, think of a

small thimble of water that holds 1 milliliter. One milligram would be

1/1000 of that milliliter or roughly 1/2 a drop.

In science we often refer to one gram being equal to one milliliter as a rough comparison. It is pretty close.
