A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas 2017 – Day 3

                                          A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas 2017 

I am thrilled to be able to bring you A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas for the 4th year in a row. I’m excited as this year the theme of all of my posts will be about thrifted, gifted (diy) and vintage items as Christmas presents.

Today is Day 3 of my 12 Days of Christmas 2017 and today the gifts are neighbor gifts and in my books homemade gifts are always welcome, especially the edible kind. I roasted two different types and flavours of nuts, honey roasted sesame almonds and sweet & spicy roasted cashews. Links to the recipes will be available further down in this post.

To put the nuts in I used these wonder vintage Improved Gem mason jars. I love vintage mason jars and scored one dozen of the size shown below for $5.00.  They turned out to be the perfect size for the neighbor gifts.

I added some washi tape and ribbon to dress up the jars, then wrapped them in a piece of leftover decomesh and popped them into gift bags that I bought in January this year at Michaels for 75% off.

As promised, here are the links to the recipes.

Honey Roasted Sesame Almonds can be found here,  at Little Chef Big Appetite.

Sweet & Spicy Roasted Cashews can be found here, at Leelalicious.

These neighbor gifts hit all three categories I aimed for this year, thrifted, gifted and vintage, A Wandafulthing!
