Does anyone know what I could use for fake snow on glass Christmas balls? I need it to be permanent and frugal as I'm making several dozen. I'll post a pic when I'm done with them, IF I get done LOL. Please help!

try using Irridescent white glitter
Could you use packing peanuts or other styrofoam cut into little bits? Depending on what liquid your globes are filled with, they should float.
When I posted my suggestion about packing peanuts, the heading of the request said snow globes, hence the suggestion about floating the bits. You could still crumble/cut up the foam and dip your ornaments in them after putting glue on the glass balls.
Crafts stores sell fake snow in a jar it has a frosting consistancy. you spread it on as thick or thin as you want and you can smooth it out or leave it a little bumpy. it air dries hard It isn't that expensive I have used it with my Girl Scout troop. and a small jar can go a long way.
I read somewhere that you could use spray adhesive and then sprinkle sugar on, don't know how permanent that would be.
You could also spray each Christmas ball with spray glue adhesive and roll each around in a dish of rock salt ( one box can be purchased for $1.20)
Rock salt - like when you make ice cream in a churn.
