Sensational Sashes & Our Brand New 31 Day Challenge!

banner4

Hi, ladies! It’s time for another Wrapunzel Challenge wrap-up post and we’re SO excited to share these amazing creations with you! We’re also pleased to be announcing a VERY special 31-day Wrapunzel Challenge, so be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post, after you’ve perused this week’s gallery. It’s one that wrappers can participate in during any month of the year!!!

Our most recent theme was wrapping with sashes and it’s been incredible to see all of these diverse looks on social media and elsewhere. Thank you all SO much for your participation!!!

What is a sash exactly?  Well, they’re what we call scarves that don’t cover your head completely. They might be too narrow or perhaps are a scarf folded lengthwise (to be worn as an accessory over another scarf). Either way, there is a seemingly endless amount of ways to wear them and if you’re looking for inspiration for how to wear your sashes as a head scarf, this post is not to be missed!

 

Well, if you’ve made it this far, you surely must be wondering what we have in store for our next challenge… After all, 31 days is a long time! We’ll be back in June with our regular bi-weekly challenges, but in the mean time, we’re gearing up to have a month of fun! Inspired by two members from our Facebook fangroup (Thanks Willow and Justine!!!), we’ve decided to make an EPIC challenge for the entire month of May.

It’s simple, really! To participate, each day a wrapper wears a totally different style wrap than the day before, with the challenge lending itself to experimentation and fun! Tichel newbies can enjoy the practice and learn fundamental techniques, while more experienced wrappers might discover a new favorite style or step out of their comfort zone a little. You can participate as little or as much as you’d like!

For day one (today- May 1st), we’ve decided to start with a war,-up day! Easy peasey, right? Some of these styles can be quite challenging, but remember- it’s all about having fun!

As with all of our Wrapunzel Challenges, you can share your photos on social media and use the hashtag #wrapunzel31daychallenge. We will not be compiling a collage at the end of the month, but are truly looking forward to following along and seeing what you all create!!!

Gorgeous Golden Tichels + Our Newest Challenge!

banner

 

Hi, ladies! It’s time for another Wrapunzel Challenge round-up and this one is full of wraps inspired by the sun! While most chose to wear yellow and golden-colored hues, we saw many Wrapunzelistas interpret this theme in interesting ways: tichels that remind them of dawn and dusk… green, to represent the sun’s effect on nature and growth… selfies taken IN the sun. The possibilities were endless!

Thank you all SO much for your participation! Don’t forget to scroll to the bottom of this post for our next challenge theme’s big reveal and to learn how to participate. Need some sunshine-y inspiration? Our #wrapunzeledinsunshine collage below will not dissappoint!!!

*Bonus: Somewhere in these photos is the tiniest little Wrapunzelista we’ve ever seen! Can you find the precious baby #wrapunzeledinsunshine?

 

For our next challenge, we’ve decided to focus on one of the most perfect accessories for warmer temperatures. An easy way to jazz up any simple tichel styles and take it from great to fabulous! To learn more, check out the reveal video below:
