How to make a strainer?

I recently brought fish tank it came with external filter and its missing few parts. I have to make spray hose and I also need a stainer. I had tried looking at pet shops and aquarium but had no luck, does any one have ideas on how to make strainer?

plastic canvas that is cut in a trip to make a cylinder to wrap around the intake,a zip tie to tighten around the base of the filter intake attaching the plastic canvas, and a piece of poly fiber or matila in the end to block the opening.

An undergravel filter head works well depending in the diameter.

I would try one of those pre filters. Fluval makes them.

Many of the intake strainers are tapered so you might be good if you find another one.
