Default How to make antenna in 10 seconds.

Most bug clips have an antenna. Follow the instruction below, fast and easy, it's a snap!

1. What do we need: embroidery scissors (do not use shares), fray check, 1/4" or 3/8" ribbon.

5

2. Generously apply fray check on ribbon's woven edge. Leave the botton untouched.


3. Cut the edge as shown --using embroidery scissors. Why not sheers? Try both and you'll understand. The left scissor was purchased from walmart, About $5, not as good as the right one (gingher brand purchase at Joann 5 years ago).


4. Cut as shown.


5. Bend the antenna as shown and it'll hold the shape. Fray check serves as fabric stiffener.

Yes. 1st time I saw the bug bow on ebay, I thought the antenna was some kind of wire. Went to craft store, didn't see any wire suitable. Then I looked the picture again, decided that it was the ribbon woven edge. I use fray check all the time so didn't even think of wood burning tool or lighter.
