I was thinking of getting some shepherd's hooks and was wondering if anyone has come up with any cheaper DIY solutions that might be interesting.
I found some flimsy plans that were mainly used as decoration temporarily. I'm planning on using mine throughout the season to hold hanging planters that can get heavy.
They're only about $7 for 48" ones but I was wondering if I could make my own cheaper, taller and stronger somehow.
Here's an example of what a commercial one with a hanging basket looks like. Found it online at http://portuguese.alibaba.com/product-gs/park-hanging-flower-basket-shepherd-hook-1917181848.html
