Pin #4 was Tomato Cage Christmas Trees. Simply turn the cage upside down and wrap with Christmas lights - instant tree. To make them with varying heights, Dave stacked 2 cages together for the tree on the right. If you want them to look more "tree-ish" during the day you could wrap with artificial greenery along with the lights and add bows or ornaments.

Pin #5 was another felt ornament - this time a snowman. As usual, I did things my own way: I glued the nose on rather than stitching; and, rather than assembling the hat separately and sewing it on as instructed, I glued the stripe pieces to the hat front then glued it to the front of the snowman. I left the hat back plain and glued it to the snowman back - making sure it lined up with the hat front - and stitched around the entire thing - snowman and hat. I would like to say that stitching in black rather than blue was an aesthetic choice, but honestly, I just didn't pay attention to the instructions and had it half done in black before I realized it was supposed to be blue (to look like snow - duh!) I also added some beads as buttons, just for kicks, and glued a ribbon loop to the top of the hat for hanging.

One final note: The pattern, when printed from the BHG website says "enlarge to 133%", which I did on the copier at work (why they didn't just make the original that size is beyond me - it easily fits on one sheet of paper). The finished snowman is about 6" tall. For use as tree ornaments, I think I would like them slightly smaller, so will try the next one without enlarging the pattern.
Have fun - and please come back and leave a link to your versions if you give them a try.
