DIY Rapunzel Braid with Fleece Fabric

My son Cohen is turning 5 in 2 weeks, so we have been prepping away for his birthday party.  He’s a princess loving boy and his new obsession is Rapunzel.

I wanted to make a braid for each party guest.  I looked up some tutorials and most of them involved yarn.  I tried to do a sample one and it was trickier that I expected.  I knew there had to be a simpler way.  Someone sent me a link to one done in fabric at Hanna Andersson, and I thought YES!  Fabric should make this project much easier (and cheaper).  Each headband costs about $3 to make.

So, I’ve made a video about what I did to make these fleece Rapunzel braids.  They will make perfect party favor’s to Cohen birthday guests.

Materials:

  • Yellow Fleece Fabric  – 1.5 yards made 5 headbands.  The last two I made were thinner braids since I was getting low on fabric.  If you want them all to be thick braids, I would do a little more).
  • Purple Ribbon – this is for weaving into the braid.  I bought a spool at the dollar store and ran out after 2 headbands.
  • Plastic Headbands – I purchased packs of 2 at the dollar store
  • Hot Glue
  • Scissors
  • Fake Flowers – also purchased at the dollar store.
