DIY Betta Log Alternative?

I recently threw away my floating betta log because the paint chipping was getting ridiculously annoying xD
Is there some sort of DIY alternative?

No I can't put cardboard in water lol. It will disintegrate eventually and get soggy. :P And they have glue on them which would be toxic... :/

There was DIY mesh hammock thread around here somewhere. I don't have the link, but its around here, and it might be just what you're looking for!

Oh yeah I made one but then the ends of the bread ties rusted and it scared me! I supposed I could remake it using cotton string to hold it together...

Darn. Well, that's about the only thing I can think of :( The cotton string might disintegrate after a while. I wonder if there are any plastic twist tie things like the metal ones.

Use fishing line instead to tie it together. I'm waiting to get some riccia or java moss to string onto the DIY betta hammock before I put it in the tank. It'll be interesting to see the result.

Someone had used a normal old plastic Dixie cup as a hammock. I bet you could use the whole cup, but you might need to tie something to the sides to keep it floating. Hmm.. now I want to try making one, lol.

You could use those flat marbles to keep it from floating all the way.
