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.
- 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
- Fake Flowers – also purchased at the dollar store.
