The above:- Take one 5 inch (12.5cm) square wooden base with Roman ogee molding and made from re-cycled wood.  Apply coat of french polish. Drill holes.  

Attach a found piece of driftwood to recycled wooden base using drilled holes and appropriate length screws.  This driftwood was beach combed off a Cornish beach on one of this summers Tik-ma-dog walks.

Create mushroom fungi from aluminium kitchen foil and using pages from an antique dictionary and water diluted PVA glue.  The dictionary was falling apart and acquired from a charity shop, but I still felt a moral dilemma in tearing pages from a book...it so went against the grain.

Tint outer edge of mushroom parasol with diluted acrylic red paint. Allow to dry and coat with shellac french polish. This polish gives the fungi a honey glow.

Drill holes for fungi having sized-up fungi in appropriate positions on the driftwood. Apply glue and place fungi in drilled holes in driftwood. 

Add glued on lichen.  This lichen scavenged from wind blown fallen branches on one of Tik-ma-dog countryside walks.  It may (or may not) have been whilst walking the NT Godolphin estate, between Helston and Penzance, Cornwall.
