I think my kids finally decided on what they are going to be for Halloween. It is a very difficult decision because they are both totally in love with costumes and dressing up. Finally I put my foot down and told them to choose. Elizabeth chose Rapunzel from Tangled. She already has the dress but in order to really become Rapunzel she needs the long, golden hair.
Enter mom and grandma. We started with golden yarn. We used the entire
spool cutting pieces about 90 inches long. Once the entire spool was cut
we split the pieces into 3 sections. Then I added a purple ribbon to
one of the sections. I twisted each section just to keep the yarn tight
and in place. Then I tied the sections together using a rubber band at
Next we braided the sections together, tightly. (This is very
important because the yarn comes loose if it is not braided tight. If
you want a thicker braid just use more yarn.) I used a rubber band to
hold the bottom of the braid together. Then I measured the braid around
her head to make a large loop (make sure this is tight or a little
smaller than her head because the yarn stretches). I held the loop in
place with another rubber band and tuck the end underneath the braid. Then I covered each rubber band with a
ribbon tie. You can also add flower clips or glue flowers to the yarn
for the full tangled effect.
