Nature always provides us with bountiful materials to work on. While going around a local arts and crafts store in Baguio City, I saw these round handicraft items made of pine needles.

It is even better then the silicone pot rack we have been using. After a year of using this item, it still has not been deformed by the heavy pots and dishes placed on it.
