  • 4 to 5 hooks (to screw).


  • Screw the hooks at equal distance along the bamboo stem (plan approximately 15 to 20 cm between each hook);
  • Attach the nylon or fishing thread at the end of the bamboo stem. Make the first knot and roll it around it a couple of times while tightening it. Make a new knot. Retake the thread through the hooks;
