Capitalize on the Disney movie Tangled featuring Rapunzel and her long, long, long hair. If your girls loved the movie as much as mine, you may find now is a good time to introduce some new hair care organizers and time savers into their lives.
Rapunzel Hair Organizer
Keep all their hair clips together and make a fun wall decoration at the same time.
To make a Rapunzel hair organizer you will need;
4-inch embroidery hoop
Yarn, yellow, (or any color your little girl desires)
Cut three yard strands of worsted weight yarn, 42 pieces or more.
Fold in half and tie a short piece of yarn at the center.
Lay the center of the folded yarn on the inner ring of the 4-inch embroidery hoop.
Spread the yarn out to fill the circle.
Fit the outer ring over the inner ring and then tighten the screw.
Flip the hoop over, letting the yarn fall over the hoop.
Loosely braid the yarn from the base of the hoop to an inch from the end.
Use the screw to hang Rapunzel’s braid on the wall. The screw ends up looking like a hair clip through the yarn.
Clip hair clips randomly up and down the braid.
Create a Style File to help with the morning rush. The idea is to build a photo album full of hair styles that your daughter has worn. She can point to the style she wants in the morning, or get a better idea of what looks good on her.
To make a style file for your daughter you will need;
Take photos of your daughter’s hair in different styles; pig tails, bun, pony tail, braid, french braid, clips and whatever creative style she comes up with. Take photos from the front, back and sides for a complete view.
Buying the supplies to make embellished hair clips will save you serious money over the years. Teach your daughter how to make her own as a creative and inexpensive hobby.
To make custom hair clips you will need;
Metal double prong clips (a box of 100 can be purchased for around $5 at a beauty supply store)
Hot glue gun
Cut ribbon to size by placing the end of the ribbon in the clip and then wrapping it around the top, over the prongs all the way around.
Use tacky glue to attach the ribbon. Start at the inside of the clip and work your way around. Adults can use a hot glue gun. Add a small rectangle of craft foam to the inside of the clip to help hold fine hair.
After covering the base of the metal hair clip add embellishments to make it your own. Thin ribbons can be tied into bows, left to hang from a single bead, add feathers, bells or other small charms.
