Made with Shrinky Dink, a plastic straw and some small beads.

I started with constructing the layout.
My desk didn't look that tidy for long!
The foil is Shrinky Dink, a foil you can draw on and then bake it in the oven. It will well up a bit and then shrink. For some odd reason not all became flat afterwards, some stayed welled-up.
For some reason it also was not as round afterwards. More like oval.
For the base I used a plastic straw from one of those drinking packs.
I cut holes into the sides. At first I only wanted to do a slit but the Shrinky Dink pieces were so thick, I actually had to cut out a bit. Some more micro-plastic flying around, sorry Mother Earth!
I was wondering what I could use as the foot of the base. Then I remembered this grey thing that I had in my collection since my childhood. Honestly. I have no idea what this originally was but I never threw it away, thinking I can use it one day. In the screenshot you can see that the base should be square not round but otherwise it was perfect so I didn't care.
And the result! I used some small beads from a box that my mother used to play with as a kid and that is now in my stash.
And this is the original (screenshot)
