Ah neat idea... How about to clean all those loose ends up you make a continuous loop except where your pole need to attach in the center of the loop bury it so you poles can attach there. Like this.
continuous loop but before you finish the loop bury it in the center how ever wide you need it for your pole and it would look like what you have.
