I have an old one of those that I picked up at a thrift store a couple of years ago and have been wondering how I could hang it.

cherylad you don't have to drill the glass you can do it other ways but those are so easy to make

Donna... I was wondering if a plastic container... maybe like a mayonnaise jar would work? I guess as long as it fit the "feeder" part?

yep it sure would and also you could use wire and beads to make a holder and you also you could use a pretty plastic plate on top which is a breeze to drill a hole there are so many ways to get around drilling in glass just let me know if you have a question I will see if I can find my feeder bottoms I have and do 1 for you to see
