Need help building 36" arched trellis on existing masonry gate post....

I have some jasmine ivy growing up my masonry gate post (posts are about 12" x 12"). I want to install an archway above the gate so the jasmine will grow and create an arched look. I have searched everywhere for a small, 36" archway that I can bolt to the 2 gate posts, but I haven't seen anything other than a full archway that starts from the ground, up.

Any ideas on how to achieve this? wood or wiring the best method? My plan is to bolt the archway to the existing gate posts . Thanks for any advice....!

Most archway trellis and arbors are shipped disassembled. You can buy the kit and only use the top part. You can also make the arch yourself out of wood depending on your skills and tools. Me, I'm more a metal person so I'd bend & weld up something.
