Old brushwood fence - craft ideas?

We're about to rip up our old brushwood fencing and really wanted to find a better end to it than burning it (up at Howes Valley in the appropriate season) or throwing it away.

I wonder if there are any ideas people have on upcycling it. A quick google didn't yield anything but chances are I didn't search for the right term.  I'm sure it'd make a great decorating idea.  We even succumbed to the twigs in a vase at some stage but it never really looked right...

Some options I can think of:
- make a xmas wreath out of it (I think I missed the season though!)
- weave a basket ??
- create a bin enclosure with brushwood
- thatch a roof

Hmm... they all seem quite ridiculous.

Would love any ideas of what I can do with this stuff.
