How about pads of filter foam? You could cut them to whatever size/shape you wanted.

Those rafts, as I recall, are made of closed cell foam, so they can support the weight of plants. Filter foam is always open cell foam. Also, you need to verify that the foam you use doesn't leach any harmful chemicals.

Cork tree bark makes good floats. They look natural too.
