My daughter loves Rapunzel. If you asked her about it, she’d go into a silly Rapunzel chant about her love of it.
I’ve already made her a Rapunzel dress, which she has pretty much worn nonstop for the past year or so. But I wanted the complete costume, so she needed a wig.
Materials: half yard of yellow fleece, sewing machine, 1/4” elastic, thread, fake flowers (I got mine at the dollar store)
First cut your fleece into three equal pieces from the bottom up to about a foot from the end.
Then carefully braid your fabric. Patiently answer questions from your very excited 5 year old.
Try it on to check length and placement of the elastic. For my 3.5 foot daughter the 45 inch width was perfect.
Round out the corners of the top and from one edge to the other stitch on the 1/4” elastic, stretching it as you sew.
At this point your wig will look like this, a shower cap with a braid attached. Cute, but not adorable. Not yet.
Find some trim in your drawer, mine is a scrapbooking ribbon that looks like lots of flowers and leaves, sew that on the front. It adds some cuteness factor.
Pull the flowers off your dollar store flower bunch. Hand sew them on periodically throughout the hair. My daughter only let me put two on, I wanted a few more, but she’s happy with it.
Then happily model your new hair do.
