I'm not sure, but I am hoping they are young families like us so we can have playdates and get togethers and BBQs :) Maybe I have watched Pleasantville too many times, but a girl can dream, okay?!
To welcome the new neighbors I filled some mason jars with our family favorite, Oatmeal Energy Bites and dolled them up a bit. Nothing fancy, just cute and crafty!
I just used some scrap fabric I had on hand...
Make sure the jars you use are nice and squeaky clean, then fill them with your treat of choice.Peanut-buttery-tasty-coconutty-deliciousness :)
Then tighten fabric on with the lid ring only. Fabric will act as the lid cap (with the metal cap it's a little snug).
Make sweet little tags to show off your skillz...I mean, to display your message. I folded a simple piece of mat stack paper in half and decorated the front. On the inside I wrote "Welcome to the neighborhood! :) Bill, Jess & Billy" with our house number...and of course I stamped the back with some Sparkles and Crafts love so they can find us online if they want to be internet friends first! (Are you reading this, neighbors?! Hi!!)
Tie the tags on with bakers twine to match and wha-la! Sweet little mason jars filled with toasty, nutty goodness for new neighbors to enjoy :)
I'm going to deliver them now and meet our new neighbors!!
Do you have a gift you give when someone new moves in on your block?
For the record, Princess was babysitting Billy while I did this project. No children or animals were harmed in the completion of this craft.
They call them "Nanny Dogs" for a reason :)
