House of Sticks & Big Bad Wolf Bento

I woke up inspired to make this bento. I have made a House of Straw Bento here, and I knew I wanted to make the house of Sticks next, but I just didn't feel the inspiration for it... until today. My fiance loves wolves, so I wanted to make the big bad wolf. Unfortunately I didn't have much to make the wolf out of. I looked around for things I could use to make the bento, and I was able to make a wolf out of a weird looking horse cookie cutter.
My fiance's Bento consists of:
  • House of Sticks (Whole Wheat Bread, Natural Peanut Butter, Pretzel Sticks)
  • Sky (Blueberries)
  • Sun (Pineapple)
  • Grass (Spinach)
  • Pig (Gluten Free Animal Cookie colored pink with a Strawberry)
  • Wolf (Whole Wheat Bread Crust, Natural Peanut Butter)

I originally used a pig cookie cutter and some bread to make the pig, but it was too big. The wolf and the pig would have been the same size. So I decided to use the cookie instead. Oink!
