Both Cardamine lyrata and Hydrocotyle leucocephala make me think of ivy. They both grow very easily with the Cardamine being more compact and a bit slower growing than the Hydrocotyle. They will grow around and through branches and it's easy to encourage them to get tangled around just about anything in the tank. While it's normal to have the base of the plant planted in the substrate, it's not necessary. I've had them grow just fine when a piece breaks off and gets tangled in something else.

You can also try the various ferns (java ferns and Bolbitis) and anubias that can be attached directly to the wood. They do grow rather slowly though.
