Is there some kind of plant that can do this? Like Java Moss?

You mean moss or algae? Algae is sometimes nasty and hard to get rid of. are you thinking this?

Well, you either brow or buy a lot of java moss and attach to the driftwood using black cotton thread. The java moss will then grow/wrap around the log and the thread will no longer be visible. Then make sure you have ample light and nutrients for it to grow which is very easy.
