Cover your pots

Hiya.  I purchased large 12" black plastic pots to transplant from the smaller ones usually sold with the hanging baskets.  But I don't like seeing the plastic.  Inserting them into galvanized buckets is a solution but those heavy metal handles do not hang from a hook well, and I am always concerned about the weight load.  So I think I've solved that.

We found 3/16" metal rod and after reaming the handle holes slightly, inserted it through to the other side. 
The handle weight on one side makes it tilt a little so I slipped a few small stones in the other side to distribute weight evenly.  Since we drilled holes in the bucket bottom there will be no weight from held water and the plastic hangers will take the load.

Pretty pleased with the result.

Much better!!

Have a great day!
