You don't need a professional tripod, but an inexpensive tripod works wonders. I would invest the $10-$15 in an inexpensive tripod. It will do the job you want it to, and be much more stable than a makeshift something.

I agree. I vote for the $10-15 tripod. A makeshift thing could end up seeing one's more expensive phone on the ground and possibly broken.
