1). go to your extension etc folder
2). create widget.xml file

<?xml version="1.0"?>
    <widget_instagrampro type="instagrampro/widgetblock">
        <name>Magecomp Instagrampro</name>
        <description type="desc">Magecomp Instagrampro</description>

put this code in that file and your widget will display when you create new widget


You can check this module for create custom widget in magento 1.9.
