Aus literally means made of/from in this case, while von usually means the same as of.
Ein Zaun aus Holz.
A fence made of wood.
Ein Zaun aus Latten.
A fence made from latches.
Ein Zaun von vielen.
One fence of many.
Eine Liste von Zutaten.
A list of ingredients.
When it is clear the list isn't meant as a physical object, making a list aus instead of von means you focus on the list rather than the things on it. But this is very subtle.
Er hatte eine Liste aus Zutaten und Arbeitsschritten.
He had a list made of ingredients and work steps.
Er hatte eine Liste von Zutaten und Arbeitsschritten.
He had a list of ingredients and work steps.
No difference to me. "Liste aus..." implies "Liste bestehend aus...". All three sound equally fine to me.
"Liste Objekte..." without anything should also be grammatically correct but to me sounds less colloquial or common. I am not sure how or if this construct can be used if you have different things in the list, as in: "Liste Objekte und Menschen", to me does sound really strange and perhaps wrong.
For my ear in the first three options, the emphasis is on it being a "list", while in the last option the emphasis shifts a bit to the objects that make up the list.
Another option similar to "Liste Objekte..." could be with compound nouns, e.g.: Zahlenliste.
