You could.  I've also seen wire coat hangers used for the same purpose.  I've seen the pin removed that holds the current antenna on, then it is replaced with a length of copper tubing or wiring and coat hangers.  You should be able to use anything with a metal core.  Cut the connectors from the phone cord and strip a section off.  Wrap that section around a part of the existing antenna and  do the same on the other end and tack it to a wall or other object to keep it in the air.
