Erm, read on the net that you can do a soft-fous filter..
take a al-cheapo skylight/ UV filter, and lightly spray the inner side of the filter with black spray paint (?)
...

Never tried this though.

Umm... why re-invent the wheel (and end up with a low quality product too) when there are plenty of high-quality wheel makers out there? Generally, in photography, you get what you pay for... ;)

Heard of this:

use black pantyhose stretched over the lens to make a diffuse filter. Dunno if it works/works well. :)
