Another Halloween, another Disney Princess costume. This year I’ve got two princesses, My four year old Allison wants to be Rapunzel, and my 16 month old Ashley is going to be Snow White. While we were picking out costumes, I saw a couple of Rapunzel hair options – which weren’t that great, so I decided to make my own.
I came across a few pictures of these hair braids that you can make from yarn online. I saw a Rapunzel colored one, but this could also work great for an Elsa costume! Just change the colors of yarn and ribbon, and you have an Elsa braid. Maybe we will do that next year, she hasn’t gone as Elsa yet!
What you need:
Big piece of cardboard (the size of a poster board)
You’re going to start off with taping the end of the yarn to the large piece of cardboard. Pull the cardboard to the edge of the table, and start wrapping the yarn around. You are going to wrap the entire thing of yarn around this board.
Bring the top part over and secure with a ribbon. This is where the child’s head will go, so make sure to see if it fits them before securing. Make sure to also cover up the ponytail holder with the ribbon.
Hope you guys liked this DIY, let me know if you try it out!
