My initial thoughts go towards DIY projects, just to see how easy or hard they may be, and how the cost compares. I've seen people use just plain old chains, like this:

Here's another DIY chain that uses simple metal rings:

Then there's this beauty, which I spied forever ago on Design*Sponge... I love it:
Here's one I found on Pinterest, that sadly, as Pins often go, doesn't have a link to the original tutorial, but it looks pretty straight forward:
Then there is also the buying it option. I love copper, I love how it turns green, and this one here is only $55 on Amazon so... one of our five may just get it:
For added drainage & less erosion, dig a deep hole under the pot and fill it with gravel. This will act as a French drain, dispersing the water back into the ground. Or, if you're worried about water near the house, you could run a PVC pipe from the bottom of your pot, slightly underground, to an area far away from your home.
The possibilities are endless, any rain chain adds such a nice detail to your home, without very much effort. Which would you choose? I'm leaning towards copper tulips & metal rings....
Have a great one!
