Turn your cheap straws into this chic himmeli geometric sculpture

The sleek Scandinavian interior design trend has been pretty popular for a while now, but unfortunately the items you need to pull off the look often come at a steep price. That doesn’t have to stop you from bringing the minimalist style into your home, at least if you’re willing to put in the time. If you’ve been ogling those stylish himmeli geometric sculptures, you’re in luck. Thanks to Ashley from Ash and Crafts you can make your very own for a fraction of the cost.

Do it yourself Scandinavian design

The sleek himmeli sculpture is a great way to introduce some Scandinavian style into your home. Use it to give your succulents an extra boost or maybe hang a few for subtle accents in the living room. Oh and if you don’t have succulents, Ashley also has a tutorial for that. The great thing about this glam it yourself project is that it doesn’t cost a lot and it’s fairly easy to do. On ashandcraft.com Ashley explains exactly what you need and helps you through the process with step by step pictures and instructions.

Cocktail straws and floral wire

What you need are some cocktail straws and floral wire. And of course if you want to make sure your finished sculpture matches the rest of your interior, you could buy some spray paint to add some color. Ashley used gold from Rustoleum Metallics. As we said it seems very doable. You basically thread the floral wire through the straws and start creating your geometric shapes that way. The wire is great for keeping the straws in place and for attaching different shapes to each other.

So what are you waiting for? Give it a go and start decorating. And if you’re really feeling creative you could of course always try making different shapes to spice things up.
