The easiest things for clematis to grab onto are twine, fishing line, wire, thin branches, wooden pieces, or metal rods. Garden obelisks and trellises offer great grabbing opportunities, but you can add twine lines to your garden decorations. Covering your frame with a grid of netting helps clematis also.
If you decide to make a trellis, build it with a mature clematis in mind. Pick wood or metal materials that match the expected height of your vine support. Clematis can grow up to 30 feet long, so think about an extension plan for later on. Here are visual inspirations for DIY clematis supports.
