How to tie/plant christmas moss to stump/log

Hey, i'm gonna be getting 5 golf ball portions of christmas moss for a 10G and a 5G tank and i want to tie it down to 2 coconut shells and a tree log/stump. I'm gonna use fishing line for it. But how do i go about doing so? Do i just hold it down against the "object" and tie it down and i'm good or what? I do not want an uncontrollable amount of moss in my tank so how can i do so? And how do i trim it without getting it to spread around to other parts of the tank? Worst case scenario is the moss goes into my filter and grows there!D:

You could use thread,Hairnet,or nylon mesh.It is suggested to lay the moss thin, or spread out over the object so that moss can receive light across larger surface.Tying it in a clump often result's in the moss slowly dieing from lack of light and nutrients not reaching the under layer's when attached in a clump.
Over time,,the thread ,hairnet, will rot away but moss should be attached by then assuming conditions are favorable for the plant.
To trim it were it me,, I might shut filter off, and cut it back so that light can penetrate throughout when need be. Then I would perform water change and net out what I could while water is draining.
Might also use Pe-filter sponge over the intake for the filter to help keep filter media cleaner for longer.
