DIY Deck Hanging Pot Rod

Hey y’all!  Ever since Mark and I built our deck last summer, I’ve been excited to add pops of color.  I decided to take advantage of all of the rail space on our deck so I created a Deck Hanging Pot Rod to add flowers and bright color!  (I shared this project originally on Yellow Bliss Road.)

I picked a place on my deck that would allow my flowers to get sun, hung the tension rod, and added the flowers to it.

These were so easy to make and really do make a nice addition to the deck.  A Hanging Deck Pot Rod is a cheaper & simpler alternative to a wooden flower box, too.
