DIY Aquarium Cover?

I just got a 10 gallon aquarium hood light, however it is just a little shy of being able to sit on my 10 gallon. SO, I need a cover. I am think of just sucking it up and going to petco and spending 14 bucks on one, however, I'm always trying to find cheaper solutions.

Any ideas?

I've seen some articles about people building entire hoods, but I just need something like a plastic cover or something.

I sewed pieced of rigid craft mesh together, and cut out a hole for the heater. It works great. Just cut it to size!

I plan on doing something like this soon. I have a clamp light and I am planning on just using some sort of plastic screen or craft mesh on top of my tank.

Is the craft mesh sturdy enough to hold my hood light?

No, it's not. Sorry, I was confused.
