Deca-what, himme-who?  We know it’s a mouthful, but we swear they’re real words!  Decahedron is the shape of the parts of the mobile, and himmeli is the style of folk art that this project emulates.  Not only does Aunt Peaches explain how to make this fun, geometric design, she also does a wonderful job of breaking down the vocabulary!  (It’s like two lessons in one!)  [how to make a decahedron himmeli mobile]
