Home Made Aquarium Decorations?

I just was thinking of how to add that extra touch of personalization to my fish tanks, and was kinda wondering if anyone around these parts has gone through the steps of making caves/structures out of Riverstone/any other type of rock/gravel/pvc piping, for their little fish and can give me a few ideas?

I was thinking of going to my local pet store and getting aquarium safe sealant and constructing new ornaments for all of my tanks, and i was thinking along the lines of Houses, multi roomed structures for each tank.
But on the other hand, im real worried about constructing something too complex for the betta, i dont want him getting lost. or the sealant giving in and crushing my betta.

but i was thinking something along the lines of this except minus the pvc pipe, and just using riverstone to give it a truely nature design.

I just wanna know really what you guys think, smart idea, bad idea, too much work, would you do it? that type of thing.

EDIT: Or even if i were to take riverstone and stick them to the back wall of the tank, to provide resting platforms for the beta, and give the tank a much better look than a simple backdrop.
