  1. Paint the child's hand

    Use a sponge to apply white paint to the four fingers and top portion of the palm. Leave the thumb and bottom portion of the palm free of paint.

  2. Imprint the ornament

    Hold the hand flat with the fingers spread. Place the glass ornament into the palm so that the fingers curl around the ornament. Remove the glass ball, and allow it to dry completely.

  3. Decorate the snowmen

    Use a black marker to paint eyes on the snowmen and hats on their heads. Use the colored markers to add other designs such as a carrot nose, a mouth, scarves, arms and ear muffs.

  4. Add the fake snow

    Remove the ornament's metal top. Place the funnel in the hole, and fill it with roughly one-fourth cup of fake snow. For extra sparkle, add glitter.

  5. Glue on the top

    Apply a thin layer of glue to the outer rim of the ornament top. Replace the metal top on the glass. Allow to dry.

  6. Tie the ribbon

    Cut a 6-inch length of ribbon, and tie it to the top of the ornament in a bow.
