Rapunzel Party Decorations

There has been so much interest in my Tangled Party–the big Rapunzel’s Golden Hair Party (based on Disney’s Tangled movie) that I just had to share one or two more pieces of golden hair goodness with you! I didn’t tell you about the DECORATIONS because they were so big and huge I didn’t get a great picture of them!

However I found one picture that showcases all of the decor. Ready for this photographic masterpiece?

First we had a the little braid hanging down in the food table. I realize that’s a little icky to have a dismembered braid in the middle of your food. But it added to the ambiance. And honestly? If I had more time I would have done about 5 or 6 hanging down from the light fixture! (Now that little braid is hanging in our craft closet. What? It’s a lot of yarn to just throw away!)

Then, we had a swath of Rapunzel’s hair in the background–see it? The hugely long swag of yarn hanging right behind me? That is about 3/4 of a pound of yarn. I bought one of those “pounder” yarns you see at the craft stores. I thought it would be a cinch to unroll it and then braid it and (my original idea) hang it out the window. I mean, really. How cute would that be?

But once Lydia and I started unrolling and unwrapping that hair…I mean yarn. Well, let me just say we really began to understand what TANGLED means. There was really no good way to do it. So, after a few hours we grabbed as much as we could and hung a big Rapunzel-like pony tail from our stairs. It made a great entry way when guest arrived and a nice stopping point for people to sign Lydia’s Rapunzel book.

And of course, it was a very fun place for the kids to hang. Literally.

The final–and my most favorite decoration was the purple flags. If you remember from the movie, when Rapunzel and Flynn get to the village, it is decorated to celebrate the “lost princess”. There are purple flags hanging up with a golden sun emblazoned on it. I just love decorations that hang from the ceiling and knew we could recreate this.

I bought 10 sheets of purple felt. We cut them into quarters. Then I printed off the Sun template from Disney’s website. I used it to cut out a stencil from contact paper. (This is like my best idea ever!) We put the stencil onto our purple flags and sponge painted yellow paint!

Lydia and I did it together and I think she did at least 1/2 of them all by herself. It was so fun to have her in on the party prep. She worked just as hard as I did!

Once they were dry, we stapled them onto a piece of yarn and hung them up! I stapled because…well, I’m lazy and didn’t want to glue. I figured they’d be up high and no one would notice. I was right.

If you missed my first Tangled Party post—well, you don’t want to! Click to see the food and activities!


  1. That is so clever! My boys and I liked the movie in the cinema. We can’t wait for it on DVD.

    Happy birthday to Lydia!

  2. There’s my favorite hair prop! It was amazing. My second fav was the purple flags–I’m glad you made a post on them.
    How do you make the link buttons (to the parties) tiny? You must teach me.

  7. Youre an ubber cool super mom! Thanks for posting and sharing your fun event and great ideas (especially your lessons learned on how yo save more if you had to do it over again…these types of memories are priceless!

  8. So clever! Thanks for sharing all your ideas. My daughter wants a Tangled party for her 6th birthday in June and I’m already planning. I love this!

  9. Loved how you did the banner!! I have been reading lots of blogs on Tangled birthday parties, since that is what my daughter wants this year, and this is the best idea I have seen!! It is so cute and seems like it will be (sort-of) quick and easy to make. Thanks so much for sharing!!

  10. So I am thowing my daughter a Rapunzel art pary in 9 days and I am finishing my last minute things. I had the cast iron skillet idea a while back, but I don’t know where to get them all w/o spending a small fortune. How did you have so many??

    Everything looked great by the way:) Love the banner idea!

    • They were my grandmother’s! She collected all kinds of serving dishes and china sets. Maybe you could try Goodwill or some other thrift store type place? Have fun!

  11. Your party looks like a hit. Wonderful ideas! Thanks for sharing! Can u tell me which website you found the pictures of the pub thugs? I can’t find them anywhere.

  12. Thank you so much for sharing all of your ideas- you are so creative! I am so excited to try some of them at my daughter’s party in August. She’ll be four and I’m so surprised at how excited she is about her party (which isn’t for two and a half months) so I really want to make this a special one for her- I think it will probably be her first real memory of a party. What did you do for a cake? I was thinking of buying the tower and placing it on a large round cake with grass and flower frosting. Any better ideas?

  13. Hey Amanda… I actually found your blog via pinterest (arrgh I finally gave in) as I am looking for Tangled Party ideas for my daughter’s upcoming 7th.
    LOVED the simple way you did the flags; will be borrowing that idea, THANKYOU!
    Also just wanted to let you know I have a year-round party linky going on my blog if you would like to link up any of your part posts you would be most welcome! Your parties are great – from one party-mad mother to another 🙂


  14. PS that was meant to say “party” posts.
    Not “part” posts 🙂

  15. That’s a amazing question! I’m not an expert on this subject but I’m going to try to find out for you. Check back later and I’ll submit a better solution.

  16. Great info and superbly written. Keep up the excellent stuff!

  17. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
