A Christmas Crate and recipe

I am joining Thrifty Thursday to share this economical project I made today on our "snow day"...and yes, it is still snowing - 42" so far since Saturday:
I spray painted a clementine crate black:
I draped it with fabric and filled it with homemade herbal vinegar, peanut butter cups, chocolate peppermint bark, dried herbs from my garden, cranapple jelly, a snack dish and cannister and a scented candle.

A festive bow, greens and snowman is tucked in the corner:Here's the recipe for the jelly:
Freezer Cranapple Jelly
4 c cranapple drink
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 pkg powdered fruit pectin
5 cups sugar
In a large pan combine drink, juice and pectin and bring to a full boil.
Stir in sugar and boil for one minute.
Remove from heat and pour into 7-one cup containers.
(Refrigerate for 3 weeks or freeze for 3 months)
