Wishbone Napkin Charms




A twist on the traditional Thanksgiving wishbone showdown, these sweet napkin charms let everyone get a wish. Just truss napkins with some colorful kitchen twine and the little wishbone trinkets. Place the charm on some twine, wrap the twine around the napkin, and tie it off.

    I beat Martha to the punch this time.
    Last year I made glittered wishbone ornaments for all my friends. They had a beaded star charm and a label that said, "Make a Wish!."
    Save your money, glitter your own wishbones.

    To consider this craft "sweet" is a brutally poor comment on our sensibilities.

    Ah-ha! Finally - a use for all of those tiny wishbones I saved from the many rotisserie chickens we've consumed over the past year! Granted, it will shed a more rustic look than the metal-plated charms shown here...
