Rapunzel Braid Wig

Is your little girl a fan of Tangled? She'll love this Rapunzel Braid Wig, perfect for a Halloween costume. This crochet Halloween costume pattern works up just like a regular crochet hat, before you add lengths of yarn as Rapunzel's long blonde hair. Cute crochet flowers add a girly touch to this surprisingly easy crochet pattern. Your little girl will be comfortable wearing a homemade yarn wig instead of a synthetic wig from the store. The chunky look of this crochet wig gives it a playful, cute look. This wig is fit for a princess.
