This Saturday morning we woke up to rain showers which is always a bummer on the weekends. The kids decided they wanted to watch a movie and chose the new Disney movie, Tangled, which was released on DVD March 29th.
In order to get into the spirit of the movie, we decided to make a prop…Rapunzel hair. I saw this idea in a recent Family Circle and thought…how cute!
I gathered our supplies:
- old tights
- yellow yarn
- needle and thread
We started by tying the legs of the tights into a knot and then cutting them off at the legs.
Next, and the longest process, we started cutting lengths of yarns twice as long as we needed (because I would be doubling them over).
Both kids had a job to do…
Once the “hair” was collected, we tied it in the middle with a piece of yarn.
Next, I draped the mid section of the hair over the tights and hand stitched the yarn to the top of the tights (of course, my daughter removed the tights from her head first).
Lastly, I braided the wig to keep it from getting tangled. After dealing with all that yarn hair, now I understand the movie title.
With the Rapunzel hair complete, we were ready to pop in the DVD and watch the movie!
I will say the movie was much more fun with the added prop.
Have you seen the movie? What did you think?
