The finished braid will be about 4-1/2 feet long. Now, you just need to measure it to see how much to allow for the headpiece. This was a bit of a problem as my granddaughter lives in California and was unavailable for consultation. Fortunately, our neighbors have an adorable little girl who is just about the same age, so I popped over to “borrow” her for a fitting. (Of course, she liked it so much, I felt like I needed to make a second Elsa braid just for her – she was thrilled with it!)
The final step was to just tie a bit of silver ribbon at the back of the head. I left about 6 inches of the silver ribbon dangling down her back just to be fun. Then the final step was to just put on the snowflakes. The foam stickers I bought were self-adhesive but I was on the fence about hot gluing them to make sure they would stay on, but they seemed to hold securely to the yarn. I alternated them around a bit to make it pretty and to satisfy my OCD leanings… I figure with a six year old, you can’t have too much glitter, sparkle, or bling!
