Apply white acrylic paint to trees with a sponge and add glitter while it's still wet. Apply paint in clumps so it resembles fallen snow. Let dry.

Add Trees

Apply a dab of hot glue (on the low setting) to the bottom of the tree, and place inside one of the bowls.

Add Snow

Use a measuring cup to pour fine faux snow inside, and add embellishments. Repeat for the other two bowls. Use a stick or pencil to rearrange as needed.

Make a Felt Hat

Trace and cut a circle on a piece of felt slightly larger than the opening of the small bowl. Cut a 3-inch piece of felt and roll into a cylinder shape. Hot glue to hold in place, and hot glue it to the felt circle. Add embellishments as desired.

Stack Bowls

Stack the two medium bowls, then twist a wired ribbon into a scarf shape and place on top. Next, place the small bowl on top followed by the hat.
