Himmeli

img_1562

I made my “Himmeli” for the first time!
Finnish used to decorate straw works and also this Himmeli for Christmas.
(and burn them all after Christmas)

ヒンメリを作りました。フィンランドの伝統工芸です。
昔は藁細工やこのヒンメリをクリスマスに飾っていたそうで、クリスマスが終わるとクリスマスツリーと一緒に燃やしていたそうです。
今ではアメリカ式のクリスマスツリー(カラフルな飾り)になってしまいあまり藁細工で飾り付けられたツリーを見ることがありません。

First, I cut stalk of those straws.

まず、茎の部分だけ切り、葉の部分を取り除きます。節は切り落とします。

Cut the straw in small pieces.

作る大きさに合わせて長さを切ります。
(ちなみに私は全て同じ長さのヒンメリ、6cmにしました)

And build those straws with threads…

糸でつなぎ合わせていきます。同じところをなるべく通らずに糸を通すのですが、これが難しい。

Great work!! It would be our living room not only for Christmas, but all year around.

完成。クリスマスだけでなくずーっと飾っておきます。
光を当てて影を楽しめます。動くととても綺麗!

  1. こんにちは.

    This post is gorgeous. I am very glad that You made our traditional Christmas decoration – Himmeli. It is important that the rest of the world know this beautiful decoration. Your photos show how it is done. どうもありがとうございます。

    If You do not mind I give example made by my wife how ti can be made from beads which glimmer in sun shine. I guess that You could do it easily also:

  3. Thank you for your post! The Himmeli is very beautiful with gold beads!! I’ve just bought last week some beads in Tallinn, and I was thinking that I should try the Himmeli with beads, as our teacher recommended. It must be very beautiful when the sun shine reflects to the glass beads!! It was so fun to make it! I heard that Finnish school students don’t learn Himmeli at school. Too bad. It is fun and at the same time we have to think how to let the threads through. It is kind of mathematic and difficult, but worth trying it!!

    1. Great that your daughter had experienced Himmeli! Unfortunately our children did not learn, however I practice some Himmeli and hopefully I can tell them how to make it 🙂 They notice how geometric it is. It would be fun!
