Goodwill and Old candle jars

HI,
I spent today, making up some quick things, with items I had found at Goodwill and using up some of the cinnamon coated candle jars and cans. I hate to throw away those candle jars after I burn the candle and figured sooner or later I would find something to put in them.
First off, I used the old candle cans for part of a candle light. Just filled it up with newspaper and moss and glue a candle light in the middle of it Added greenery and berries. I had purchased some of those old looking labels off ebay and glued them to the can. I love the way they turned out. So quick and easy.



Next, I had found this old wicker sleigh at Goodwill some time ago. I put a candle light, small tree, mouse, snowballs and Christmas letter in it.



These are some old roller skates, I added the wrapped candy canes, greenery and snowmballs and Little Mouse to each skate. These I absolutely love, wish I had more skates.



I had these candle jars left after I burned the candles, so I added a little Charlie Brown tree and prim label on the front of the jar.



I had some old copper tea kettles and put the wrapped candy canes, snowballs and greenery in these also with a candle light. So quick and simple.



I still have a lot in the shed, that I want to get used up and my shed downsized somewhat, I don't know what all I even have in there. But am finding treasures, everytime I start digging.
Well, hope you enjoyed looking at my quick and easy projects.
