I’ll be cutting the astilbe down for the winter and thought I could position the stem holding the sac within the holly shrub branches.

Absolutely! I know several gardeners who move mantid egg sacs to other parts of the lawn for organic pest control. For more information on praying mantids, click here: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/beneficial/praying-mantis-egg-sac-info.htm
