Trending: Geometric Himmelis

Himmelis have been creeping up everywhere recently for wedding decor. Originally a Finnish Christmas decoration, the Himmeli is a geometrical mobile that could be made of anything from plastic straws, to wood.  The design could be as simple as a triangle, or a more intricate shape.  I’ve compiled some photos for inspiration, and also some easy instructions on how to create your own.
