Cut two wooden dowels to 3.75" and another to 3" also find a circle piece of wood that is about 1.25" in diameter. If you don;t have a circle piece feel free to just make 2x3.75" pieces. make holes at both ends of one and if your using 2xdowels put a hole on one side too. Attach them to the servo as shown in the photos above.

Step 2: Solder Wires
