    Dh went to the thrift store and bought these items to made a feeder. Any reason why this wouldn't work? It's so cute! We won't be able to hang it, so I know we will need to raise it up for them. Thanks!

    Just a guess here but I would think that you don't see ceramics b/c they're breakable. They'll roost on top so you'll need to make sure that they either can't get on top or that it's stable enough that it won't get knocked over.
