they are enchanting.
they are unusual.
they are 3d geometric drawing slowly twirling in the breeze.
most sites I looked up claimed Himmeli are Finnish, but others say Lithuanian. So let’s go with old world folk craft. One of the places I visited stated they were usually made from hollow rye stalks, but most tutorials use straws.
They are traditionally a Christmas ornament, but, I think they are rather springy and light. So I am gonna make some out of birch printed paper straws.
I felt that the instructions on Smile and Wave were best for me. I did 3 sizes and made a mobile of them that hangs over my kitchen island.
