Snack bags for delivery drivers - THANK YOU for UPS, USPS, FedEX, mail carrier APPRECIATION ideas - outsmarting raccoons

I love having snacks or treats on the porch for delivery drivers as a little thank you. 

I just made this hanging snack bag holder because we have the cutest furry porch pirates stealing snacks. 



I made this snack and drink bucket two years ago and the drivers love it! I've had some write thank you notes and even dance with excitement. Two years with no issues and then ....raccoons. 

EVERY. SINGLE. NIGHT! 

It started with just one raccoon and then they brought a friend.

I made the snack bucket smaller but they still knocked it over. I finally had to remove it. ((sniffle))

I came up with the new idea of hanging the snack bags.



I printed the tag a little smaller and purchased bags from Michael's.


I also thought it would be funny to show why the snacks were gone for the last week. 

I used leftover supplies in my craft room to make a hanging triangle with hooks. 

Ruler
Ribbon
Keychain ring
3 - Screw in cup hooks
Dowel
Pliers
I measured equal spacing for the hooks.

Two of the cup hooks had drywall dust. Not sure where I used them but they came in handy for this project. 

It was a little tough to screw in the cup hooks. Once I got it started the pliers were a must to finish twisting. Saved my fingers.


I added the keychain ring to the middle of the ribbon for hanging.

Hot glued the ends of the ribbon around the sides of the dowel. Wrapped the dowel with ribbon and added a little hot glue every other row.


I change up the snacks for holidays or weather. For summer I try to find stuff that won't melt. 
Crackers, chips, beef jerky, etc.


I wanted the bags to be higher and easy for the drivers to grab and go.

Fingers crossed they can't get up that high.
