Great ideas, lcp. I did make some hoops from Willow branches last summer and have them hanging in my kitchen. I never thought to soak them first to make them more pliable. One hoop is almost round and the other is an oval shape. I will experiment with these to see how a dreamcatcher or medicine wheel looks. I love the thought of a natural look for a more traditional craft item.
We do not have high humidity here, so the metal rings do not rust -- but, that is something to keep in mind.
