You can buy fishing line at any sporting goods store, like Dick's. They also carry it at Wal-Mart and probably Target.

If you're using a coconut, you can get the java moss to attach to it without using any sort of thread:

"Java Moss can grow on a coconut shell like a green lawn. Steep the coconut shell first in boiling water to leach out some of the tannins. Cover the wet coconut shell with half-inch clippings of Java Moss. Let them fall where they may, all over the coconut, and spritz them to make them lie flat. Put it in a saucer of water with a glass bowl over the top for three weeks in a sunless window, till the Java Moss is covered with fresh pale growing points. Later, whenever the moss needs clipping, take the coconut shell out and shear it close with the flat of the blade of scissors. Try this same trick with that ceramic hollow log that should look more real than it does."
