Maybe some of that snow flocking stuff that is sold seasonally for Christmas?  It's usually in a spray can.

Do you need it to be 3D or just a powdered sparkly look on the felt itself?
If it doesn't have to be too puffed up, maybe some spray starch to hold down some fluffy white glitter?

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!

Right and wrong are just words, it's what you do

Or use a dry, stiff brush and dab white paint onto the felt.  Kind of like stenciling.  This idea might be messy, but, put glue on the felt, and sprinkle it w/baby powder or corn starch.  Just some thoughts.

Wet felting very lightly with successive layers of white, grey, and ice blue wool can do beautiful snow effects on a felt backdrop, especially if you drybrush over it. Smiley
