How to make Frozen Elsa’s Braid

When she told me she wanted her birthday party with Frozen theme I had to tell her to stop using the dress because she wouldn’t have a dress by then at that rate LOL.

She loves it so much that she actually stopped using it and she tells me every day “Mommy, I can’t use my Elsa’s dress until my birthday, I need it pretty” hahaha. So since I’m focusing on Elsa I decided to also make Elsa’s Braid so she would feel even more like Elsa!

I so love seeing her dreaming about her favorite characters and creating her story and a whole world with her imagination. It’s so funny to listen to all that she comes up with while playing and she LOVES to play with Anna and Elsa {she also has the dolls, spoiling grandma!!} Having her birthday all about Frozen has been a huge deal for her.

She sees me making something different every day, and comes to me hugs me and tells me, Mommy, I LOVE everything you are making, thank you! Can you believe those words come from an almost 4 YO???? That’s reward enough to all the effort I put into her party!!! I’m so super excited about this and can’t wait to share everything I’ve made.

DIY Elsa’s Braid Tutorial

Supplies:

IMG_7651

  • 2 rolls of white yarn, soft and not too thin, not too thick. It’s really up to you!!! I bought the cheapest one I could find to be honest.
  • Light blue ribbon really thin.
  • Snowflakes buttons
  • Snow glitter.
  • A crown
  • Glue

Ok first, the hardest part. Calculate the length of the braid, which is tricky. You need to measure pretty much double of the actual length.

Using 2 my dining chairs I started wrapping the yarn around the back of the chairs making loops and loops until I used 1 and a half roll of the yarn. This is something you need to keep an eye on because the thickness of the braid is totally up to each person. So when you think it’s thick enough just stop looping.

Sorryyyyy the photo is so blurry, never noticed before. But still you can get the idea!

When finished, grab one end and tie with a strip of the same yarn and cut the endings.

Then add 3 strips of thin blue ribbon. You can add them in the previous step but I preferred having it in a different layer just in case.

With a kid rubber band I kept the ribbon in the places I wanted.

Trap that end of the hair somewhere… I used a table drawer LOL. With your finger brush, cut the other end loops and divide in three leaving one thread of blue ribbon in each.

Make the braid making sure the blue ribbon stays visible.

Tie the end with a strip of yarn.

The braid is done.

Now the Crown.

Emma wanted the crown so badly, that I know she will keep using it again and again after the party, so I invested a bit more in the crown and bough a metallic one, but a plastic one also do the trick.

I added some treads of yarn to the crown to make some details of Elsa’s hair.

Again I made some loops, and cut only one end and kept the rest folded.

I used one thread to tie the rest to the crown.

Folded in half each thread I made loops inserting the yarn through the crown spaces.

I covered about 1/3 of the crown only.

That’s it!

Final touches.

I glued some snowflakes buttons to the braid.

And finally spread some snow glitter to the braid, just to add a slightly sparkle, like Elsa’s hair. It’s not stuck, but glitter stick with or without glue LOL.

Once I was putting it to my girl’s head I just tie the braid to the crown adjusting it to my girl’s head and also cut the front hair.

I also got her hair into a braid and arranged it along Elsa’s braid, so it would not be so visible.

That’s it… Elsa’s braid all done and beautiful!!!! Hope you love this as much as we do!!!
