Default Tip for making antennas....

Fussy cutting those little ribbon antennas wasn't for me , so I started using flower stamens.You can buy them in bundles and you can get small or smaller. You need the smaller. They are on a stiff fiber with a little stamen on each end. Fold it in half and attach and you have an antenna! I have only ever seen white , but you can color them whatever color you need in just a few seconds , with a sharpie. I hope you can picture what I mean and hope this helps someone.

I use the wire coated with black plastic. I just cut them and bend a little twirl at the end. So much easier then trying to heat a curve into them.

Thanks for the idea! The antennas are the toughest part for me when making the ladybugs and bees. I might have to try this!
