I made one by splicing loops into a bit of rope (good excuse to learn to splice). Just don't do what I did and get complacent, let go of the camera swimming for the shot in 70m of water - it wasn't clipped on! the worlds fastest decent followed, caught the camera and found the wreck.

Couldn't be bothered with painting / coating the floats just used this stuff:  http://www.easycompo...Foam-Core.aspx

The layers glued together with evostick and then the whole lot held on with electrical tape.

The closed cell foam that is used as core material in composite structures works well. I have used it down to 70m with no problems. Google easy composites.
