The easiest way is if you add some tylose to your fondant and if you have a clay gun to get the pieces all the same size. Make a U shape with some heavy gauged wire. Then you want to weave your extruded pieces of fondant around the wire. Let dry for a couple of days and then you can attach to the cake.
