How To Make a Cinnamon Stick Himmeli & Dried Orange Garland | DIY

Last year around this time we did DIY-ed cinnamon stick himmeli to make natural decorations inspired by traditional Finnish ornaments. This year we’re taking things up a notch and making a full garland of them! Perfect for hanging above the mantel or on your front door, this cinnamon himmeli & dried orange garland project uses a few things that might already be hiding in your pantry to invite festivities and natural elements into your space.

Next, make a small hole on either side of the dried orange slices and thread a foot-long piece of string in one hole and out the other side. Tie one end of the string to a himmeli and tie the other to the next himmeli in the garland. Repeat and finish with an orange slice and string on each end.

love how this cinnamon himmeli garland project turned out! This looks so fun hanging in a swag against our white wall and twinkling lights — especially as the sun begins to set. Such pretty shadows.
