A Few Finishes

Do you remember my pieces from The People's Choice?
Well, I figured out a way to fully finish a few of them.
First, I had stitched this cat for my daughter and it came with a box. I finished it years ago and I had a brilliant idea.
I put two magnets inside/back of the box:

 I then glued two magnets on the back of this little piece:

I was able to use the box and display this cute little pumpkin piece.
I bought some magnetic paint and put a little bit on the corner of the frame of the Welcome piece. A magnet on the back of the pumpkin and it adds a nice touch. (I have most of the other Welcome pieces by Mill Hill and they all have a little doo-dad to attach to the frame.The little bit of magnetic paint will enable mt to stick them on.)
I had finished this Mill Hill Kit a while back and decided to just glue the little Mill Hill scarecrow to the frame.

I have ideas for the other pieces. Now to find time to finish them so I can display them next year.

Great idea to combine projects like this, they all combine so well.

Fantastic finishes! I like how you added the smaller ones to the bigger ones, perfect embellishments.

I love the way you have finished these smalls. I did something similar with the Mill Hill egg I stitched this year, added it to the frame of a larger design.
