Make Something Sunday: DIY Dried Orange and Cinnamon Himmeli Garland

Make Something Sunday: DIY Dried Orange and Cinnamon Himmeli Garland

Welcome back to Make Something Sunday, where we post a new craft every week from our favorite DIY bloggers. We took a little break from posting, but we are back and ready to get our hands dirty once again! Let's get started!

Today we are featuring a craft from Gwen, a guest contributor at Jojotastic. Jojotastic is a Seattle-based design blog by Joanna, a product designer and trend scout for companies such as Nordstrom and Anthropologie. We are so excited to decorate for the holidays, and today we will be making a Dried Orange and Cinnamon Himmeli Garland. Himmeli are traditional Finnish ornaments, a mobile decoration traditionally made out of straw or reeds. The Himmeli for this craft are made from cinnamon sticks. You will need only 3 materials to complete this craft: jute twine, cinnamon sticks, and dried orange slices. You may find it helpful to use a large, heavy needle to thread the twine through your cinnamon sticks.

We are crazy for Himmeli and have some adorable options in store for purchase. These adorable icicle ornaments and this very easy DIY kit! 

We would love to see your take on this craft! Tag us on social media with the handles below and #makesomethingsunday and we’ll send you a code for $5 off at the shop (one per person)! Happy crafting and don’t forget to come back next Sunday for our next craft or sign up for our Make Something Sundays email list and we’ll send you an email every time we post a new craft!
