Over the past few months I have become obsessed with himmeli. Himmeli is a traditional Finnish decoration made from pieces of straw. It was hung in their homes to secure a bounteous crop for the next year. The bigger the himmeli, the bigger the crop.
Well, I’ve been making mine out of cocktail straws, not real straw. And I hang it in my home to ensure a smile every time I walk by it. So far so fabulous.
Mandi from Vintage Revivals did a tutorial for this wreath that was the easiest thing ever to follow. Trust me. You can absolutely make this.
Once you get the hang of it, you’ll be making all sorts of himmeli shapes. I’ve got a post coming soon to prove just that.
Until next time….
