Elevating muskmelons on black plastic

What is your go to material for elevating muskmelons above black plastic ground cover to keep them from rotting in puddles of water? I was using old pieces of wood but I found a bunch of old shingle pieces And was wondering if they would work well or would be a problem. They’re so thin that they are very easily slipped under the melon without disrupting the vines

Poke a hole in the plastic under the melon.
