I was so excited recently when I found these planters that hang on your deck railing. We have a full view of our deck from inside the house, so I knew they would make a great project. .
I thought the planters looked a little on the plain side, and could use some dressing up. Using a water resistant adhesive, I added some glass bead around the top of the planter.
When the beads were set, I took the planter outside to fill with plants. I really like to use the Moisture Control Potting Mix in my containers, since I am not always the best at remembering to water them everyday. The moisture control in the potting mix absorbs 33% more water, and will continue to feed the plants for six months.
I filled the planters with flowers and fillers that gave them height and color. The glass beads gave them a little bit of added sparkle. I really love how they look out my window. They really dress up a once plain deck railing.
