Christmas Santa Clause Pinchos

These little Santa Clause make perfect party appetizers because they're secured with toothpicks.
Of course, they're great for a bento dish too!!

Ingredients: 2 pieces

Wiener sausage (red)
1
Hanpen
as needed
Fish sausage
to taste
Nori seaweed
a little
Imitation crab stick
a little

Steps

1. Cut the tip off the sausage.
2. Cut the fish sausage about half the width of the sausage tip.
3. Cut the hanpen into a square.
4. With a different piece of hanpen, use a straw to poke a hole. (The hole piece will be the pom pom on Santa's hat).
5. Use a straw to poke a hole in the red part of the crab stick.
6. Use a craft punch to cut tiny circles from nori seaweed for the eyes.
7. With a pick, skewer the hanpen pom pom, then the sausage tip placed on top of fish sausage. Lastly, add the hanpen cube. Stick on the eyes made of nori and the nose made of crabstick.
