This week’s Disney-inspired bento box is simple to create and sure to impress your family and friends during the holiday season. It’s our first two-tiered bento box project featuring Jack Skellington in his “Sandy Claws” hat from “The Nightmare Before Christmas” film along with a special seaweed salad Christmas tree.

Disney fan and Disney Parks Blog reader Mike Kravanis joined us in Epcot and was inspired to create today’s how-to bento box video after seeing one of the park’s beautiful Christmas trees. A seafood salad stuffed rice ball was molded to make Jack Skellington’s head and Nori, or a paper-like roasted seaweed sheet, was used for create the details of his face under a red pepper hat.

And to make the second-tier seaweed salad, Mike cut and created Christmas tree ornaments out of colored carrots and cucumbers. Try it this holiday season and then let us know which character you’d like to see featured when we continue our bento box series in 2016.
