Apply the fabric glue on the MDF base, spread it in the center and place the white circle fabric on it, letting the edges of the fabric unglued.

Knead the newspaper and tape it in the center of the MDF base. It is important let the newspaper very compressed and dense until the point that the volume of paper won’t reduce anymore, or after people seat the mushroom will lose the shape.

Cute the foam sheet in a circle and bevel the edges like in the picture.

Place the foam on the red fabric with the beveled part up. Put the Log upside down and start stapling the red fabric in the MDF base. Be careful to let the white fabric out of the staple. Now use the fabric glue to glue stick the white fabric on the red one, covering the staples with it.
