I had intentions of gluing them on but the glue sticks were in the basement and I was upstairs-with the tape :) I am by no means a painter but I followed the picture and when I messed up just painted over the mistake and tried again. After the paint had dried I covered everything with a coat of matte modge podge. For the bean/rice bag, I traced a circle with a small glass bowl and stitched along the line.
