4. Next, add clear or silver ornaments to the arrangement, nestling them into the snow.

5. Drape beaded crystal garland from champagne flutes; tucking the garland ends into the snow in each flute. To help hold the garland in place, pile small silver, clear or white glass ornaments in the top of each flute.
