Very easy to make the doo-dad. Grab a piece of fairly thick leather (like from an old purse or boot) about 2 inches wide and 1 to 1.5 inches tall. Cut/drill out 2 circles. Grab an empty (wide) tin can or old pan lined with tin foil and melt old candle remnants in it. Boil the leather in the wax for a while. Then take it out and let it dry. Voila. Doo-dad.
