Bento #4 - Christmas themed Bento

Here is my new Bento for this week & it is of Christmas theme.
First I added plain white rice as a thin layer.

Then it consists of,
Snowman made from hardboiled egg, eyes are from a ham & I used a straw to cut them
Gingerbread man made out of a chicken picnic ham & using a cooking cutter
Christmas themed stockings made from a cooked chicken sausage & decorated with some cheese
Reindeer from cooked sausage
Some carrot slices
I have added some lettuce, but they are nearly white in colour, so cannot see clearly in photos.
A piece of tomato

To decorate it more, I wanted to use some picks. And here is a tutorial on how to make beautiful picks at home.
Anyway I didn’t use stickers as in tutorial. They are beautiful, but I am not sure how they react with warm food & after closing the box.
Therefore I tried to use edible & colourful picks. So they are some colorful candy inserted into tooth pics. And I found some Christmas themed candy.To highlight the theme Christmas; I used a santa shaped candy inserted in a small pick.
