Mandi Gubler at Vintage Revivals shared a tutorial for making himmeli-style hanging planters:
Hers are made from brass tubing and leather thongs for durability. I like the updated materials! I’m not so sure about the modern shapes, though – I’m fond of this particular Finnish tradition, but I do realize turning a traditionally-shaped himmeli into a planter would be very difficult (see some examples in a past post of mine).
Visit Mandi’s blog for the video tutorial in stop-motion.
Note: I wasn’t paid or perked to mention this; just passing along a good thing.
