I happened upon a library book called Making Bentwood Trellises, Arbors, Gates and Fences. I brought it home and next thing you know I'm clipping hopefully inconspicuous branches off our redwood tree and bending them into a very crooked, very amateur heart trellis.
Author Jim Long would probably be horrified at my construction and my top arch is definitely "too pointy" but that was an impressively fun project. I've already installed it, crookedly, in the front yard.
I certainly need to practice but if I get better at bending wood there's a privet bush/weed across the street with my name on it. Jim suggests that privet is good for bent wood trellises. (He didn't have anything to say about the suitability of redwood.)
I've had project A.D.D. lately. Everything. Sounds. So. Fun! I'm super inspired about all sorts of work. But, when the kids are asleep and I have time to actually DO projects I've been just falling asleep myself. This is, as you might imagine, very frustrating. But at least I made a dorky trellis. Now to plant some vine seeds at the base.
