gita-1112

patram puspam phalam toyam
yo me bhaktya prayacchati
tad aham bhakty-upahrtam
asnami prayatatmanah

a flower, fruit or water, I will accept it. BG 9.26

how to make the pendent or ball to hang from the mala or garland…

There are a number of ways to adorn the mala with a pendent. 
The one shown here involves threading the flowers from the side to form a line.

Then, for variety, I add a large peony from my garden. 
If I had more types of flowers in the mala, I might include them in the pendent or ball.

 Then I take the two ends and tie them together, bringing the flowers together tightly to form a ball. 
You need to be careful not to tie too tightly as you can pull the tread clear through the flower and cause it to fall off!

 Tie the ball to an area in the center of the mala. 
Cut off any excess thread which might be sticking out from the mala.

You can see how the azaleas are stitched through the side in this view. 
You need to arrange them in a staggered position so that the
flower head is showing in all different directions to make the mala look full.
