the round part is a boooie that i added a little bit of bondo to to get the perfect shape. added leather for the bands around it. then the hook is 3 layers of wood sanded down to shape then everything just right. then covered it all with resin.
Ha, I wasn't far off on my design then. I'm planning on using the Halloween pretzel container that UTZ has available at Sam's Club for the base with a wood cutout of the hook between 4 layers of insulation foam then sanded down.
