Question antena for butterflies and such

so the season is quickly approaching where i will be making a lot of butterflies and various other little bugs in the past i have made my attena using ribbon but this is a severe PITA which is probably why i dont make them more so i have seen some of you use these little stem type things with like small beads or pearls on the end i can picture them but can not for the life of me think of what they are called so i can order some (what can i say lack of sleep has seriously deprvied my mental function ) but i knew on of you nice HG's could help me out TIA

Search for flower stamens. You might try wedding flower stamens or floral stamens. I have also bought them at hobby Lobby and Micheals in wedding section. hth

Wouldn't the wire be a hazard to children? I would be worried it would poke them. Maybe I worry too much..lol

The ones I bought did not have wire in them. It is like a twine that is waxed to make it stiff and then has the pearl on the end.
