How? By dressing those wishbones up first.
Since this craft project idea comes from the 1962 New Ideas For Christmas, the Fawcett publication supposes you’ll have wishbones left over from Thanksgiving (How many wishbones does a turkey have?) — and the “wishbone figurine” suggestions are Santas, angels, etc.
But don’t be so limited in your thinking.
Why not save all the wishbones you can this holiday season (and whenever you can get them) and make little wishbone figures that look just like your ex, the guy foreclosing on your home or buying your repossessed storage unit, etc. That way when you break them, it will be much more therapeutic.
