I made some cheap trellis for the wife not too long ago. It was actually my first 'project' and the first time I used my great grandfather's table saw I restored. I bought the 5 1/2" wide 6' long pressure treated fence boards and ripped them into 1/2" pieces IIRC. Made six straight trellis (probably about 2.5-3' wide) and a seventh, fan shaped one out of scraps. All for less than $10. Mounted them to the exterior of a horse stall I built now turned potting shed and they're doing great.

For the fan shaped one I simply laid them straight at an angle (did not bend them), so I do not have any advice as far as bending goes if you want that look. For joining longer sections, perhaps build it in two or three (or however many) sections with some of the vertical pieces extending out so they can be attached to the next section's horizontal supports. Like puzzle pieces.

Had the fan piece been the primary objective and not leftover scraps, I probably would have extended the middle vertical piece up a few inches as well as the horizontal supports a few inches on either side. And of course used all the same thickness boards.
