I use metal electrical conduit from the local hardware store bent with a tubing bender and attached with a bracket to the back of the stand. Simple, easy and fairly inexpensive. you can paint the conduit to match your decor. If you get lazy as I did, you you can cover the conduit with wiring loom or wrap the bars in colored tape.

Do a search on the site and you will find a number of posts about DIY hangers.
