I'm searching for directions on how to make those lovely straw mobiles, called "himmeli" I believe. Any suggestions?
Thanks,
Syrene

In swedish they are called "halmkrona". They are regarded typical finnish, but the latest etnografic researches claim that they are of swedish and swed-finn orgin. There are books on that subject. Online I found this:

I know my mother (somewhere) has a book on those too, so if you don't get any better help email me, and I'll ask her to make copies of that book.

A google search with "himmelin ohjeet" as keywords produced quite a few hits, with this page containing a diagram and written instructions topping the list:

This is another good one, also with written instructions and a diagram:
