Back in January, I made two himmeli wreaths that turned out amazing. I wanted to make a third to hand in my house with the other and I also finally finished the first one I had started making in the fall when Hobby Lobby restocked their aluminum tubing. I took pictures to show you all how
Following the boy's fox party, I had a bunch of paper straws leftover. I guess most people preferred their beverage sans straw. :) While I was putting them away, I thought that they would be perfect for a Himmeli. A Himmeli is a traditional Finnish Christmas decoration usually made from straw (hay). Using my grey/black/white paper straws made for a modern take on this classic decoration. I also decided rather than make a big Himmeli mobile, I would just make some ornaments. I am thrilled…
Himmelis are a traditional Finnish Chistmas decoration, but they actually kind of look like cool prisms or diamonds. Get the directions here, but there are also many cool himmeli options for purchase on Etsy.
