How to make a Rapunzel Wig from Yarn

Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your golden hair.
What little girl does not wish to have
hair as long and flowing as Rapunzel?
Every little Rapunzel needs her golden hair,
so we are here to help.
Let's have some fun and
make a Rapunzel wig.
You will need:
1 skein - yellow/gold yarn
flowers - purple (Dollar Tree)
5/8" ribbon - purple
measure tape
hot glue/gun
2 rubber bands
2- rocks or heavy objects
1 willing partner (this helps a lot)

Measure your little Princesses head.
or use this handy dandy chart.
6-12 months - 17"-18.5"
12-24 months - 19.5"-20.75"
2-4 years - 20.75"-21.25"
4-8 years - 21.5"-22"
Then add how long you wish the hair to be.
Our wig was for a 3 year old so we went with
21" and added length to measure 60".
We wanted long hair, but not long
enough for her to trip over.
Because Dolly wanted to play we worked
on a table, but the floor would work
just fine for very long hair.
 Place a strip of tape on each end of the
area you are working at.
Now roll the yarn to each strip of tape.
This is were the partner will come in handy.

The rock/heavy object helps the yarn
stay in place.
We used 1/2 of a pound skein of yarn
for our wig.
Once you have what you think is
enough yarn cut the loops.
Cut 1 strip of ribbon the length of your yarn.
(I know their are 3 strips, but we perfered it with just 1.)
Tie a strip of yarn around 1 end.
Divide the yarn into 3 strips and
place the ribbon on the center strip.
Braid the 3 strips.
Make sure the ribbon is on top while braiding.
(we did not get pictures of us braiding)
When you get to the end tie off
with a strip of yarn.
Using the width of head place end
were it will meet up with the "tail"
to make a crown
and secure with a rubber band.
Secure bottom of "tail" with rubber band.
Now give your hair a trim.
Tie ribbon at crown and end.
Add your flowers securing with hot glue.
Now you have a wig
for your little princess

Cecilia was so cute she stuck her head out of
her play house and asked
"who is going to climb my hair"

Now I’m here, suddenly I see
Standing here, it’s all so clear
I’m where I’m meant to be
