Will Hummingbirds use nesting material from this device?

I want to give hummingbirds nesting material in this pipe cleaner cage I built. Its just some red pipe cleaners bent and twisted into a cage shape with small openings and filled with cotton. Will the hummingbirds take it? I am planning to hang it on the shepherd hook where the feeder is, on the fence outside the garden, or on a long stick in the middle of the garden. Please help. Thanks!

I will update periodically. Last year I was so naive. I put nesting material out in July:) Silly me. So I have had this for a year. I takes rain pretty well though.
