    Saw off little bit from the ends to make the wood look clean and finished. Saw off extras so the pieces are about straight with no side branches. Small Japanese saw is great tool for this job. Drill a small hole to one end of the branch about 1 cm from the end. Drill 13 small holes to the longer branch in every 2 cm.

    Take cotton yarn and thread one shell at a time. Attach a shell with a knot so the shells wont pile to the end of the yarn. Attach about 10 shells to a line and make 4 lines like this. Take cotton yarn and thread one branch to the middle and make a knot, do other 8 branches similarly.
