I have been thinking about doing this for awhile. I finally decided to go ahead and collect the register tape rolls to make this crabby bridge. These are the rolls. For the purpose of the DIY you could use anything that is similar to the rolls.
This is my soldering iron I am using to burn holes through the rolls. You could also use a drill to make the holes.
This is the yarn that I am using to replace the jute rope that seems to be missing.
This is the burlap that I am going to use to wrap the rolls in.

How are you going to attach the burlap, Meg? Is that what you were talking about with the sealant? Could you thin it out with a brush to spread a super-thin layer so it would go farther? I love the idea of bridges (My hemp/cholla one is in the exotics & they love it), but I always have too much going on in my tanks to make one go end to end like I originally hoped for. Maybe in the big tank

I did spread it out with a gloved finger. I then wrapped in the burlap, and then wrapped hair ties around it to hold it tight to the roll. I will check to see if it has dried once I get home. If it doesn't hold I will tie the burlap to it with the yarn or the jute if I can find it. I know I had it but I am thinking Xander may have run off with it when he was playing in there.
