    Hmmm...the first thing that comes to my mind is to take two or three wire hangers and, grasping in the middle of the bottom (the long straight part), pull it away from the hook so it's now an elongated diamond shape. Fasten the ends you just pulled out together with a cable tie or two. Using needle-nose pliers (or your bare hands if you're super strong--I'm not! LOL), bend the sides of the hangers up and around your pot so they come close to a snug fit. Now, see the twisted wire just underneath the hook on the hanger? Bend the hooks themselves slightly outward and fasten the hangers together at the twisty wire part with super glue, Gorilla glue, or your favorite adhesive and add a cable tie for extra security. Decorate the hanger with tassels, beads, crystals, whatever suits your fancy. Hang it from your shepherd's hook and admire your handiwork.

    Oh, and you can camouflage the cable tie at the base of your hangers with a string of crystals or glass beads hanging from it. Clear as mud, right? Good luck!

    I can suggest two ways! 1) Straighten a hanger and cut a length of wire sufficient to encircle your pot below the lip, wrapping the ends to close the circle. Using another hanger, leave the hook, straighten the rest and cut to length, attach ends to circle and hang your pot! 2) Straighten the hanger below the hook, wrap the pot just below the lip and continue wrapping to end of wire. Hang!

    you take two metal hangers snip the bottom part at both ends of each hanger. Then twist the two hangers together then snip off extra hook. then you are left with 4 ends you can attach to pot. space equally and hang. I myself always use twine to wrap around hook & stem of hanger for extra support. also looks nice as well
