looking for ideas for easy, inexpensive homemade beach sun shade?

maybe with a tarp, PVC pipe, and some kind of twine/nylon cord?  looking to pick up the materials while on a budget vacation in Florida (staying with family) at the end of May.  Not sure if this will be something I can/will bring on the plane back home.  don't want to cause problems with airport security or have to check a bag.  Really want to avoid being crispy fried.  ideas please?

I would use a triangular Tarp (Sail size) 3 Garden canes and a few lengths of nylon cord and tent pegs.

Or even forget about the two short canes and peg it directly to the ground.
