Suggestions on how to install bamboo fencing on the ceiling?

We are looking for a cheap solution to cover our back porch ceiling. I'm in love with the idea of using bamboo fencing (the really cheap rolls), but we are unsure on how to install. I've searched internet/HomeTalk and the only solution I've found is to use "deck screws". Hubby is worried that this will either not hold (screw will be too small for gaps between reeds) or crack the bamboo reeds. Has anyone installed or have any ideas for us? We have many cross beams that we will be installing it against. Does this make sense or should I post a photo?
