Filling the Glass Ball With Snow
Use a simple kitchen funnel to fill the glass ball with artificial snow. If you cannot find snow, you can cut white plastic bags into tiny pieces. I would not recommend doing this to save money though, because a decent size bag of plastic snow is usually less than a dollar!Continue to 4 of 8 below.

Finishing the Glass Ball SnowmanFinally, cut a piece of chenille stem about 3-inches long and glue it between the two pom-poms so they look like ear muffs.
