Depends on the size of your camera, and how complicated you want to get.

I have made water proof containers out of both PVC pipes and parts and zip lock baggies. If you are in the US, using a PVC pipe case can cause issues with security freaking out, so I mostly use a stapler and a baggy.

Cut a corner of the bottom of the baggy so that it is a little smaller than your lens. Stretch it over the lens so it fits tight. Place the rest of the baggy on, roll the extra plastic and staple to make it easier to hold.

If you have a camera that is small and doesn't have a protruding lens, a condom will also work. Stretch it over the camera, tie a knot at the end, and wala! I'm not joking, it is cheap and easy.

I usually use a plastic back in which I tear holes for the lens and viewfinder. Works very well.
