How can I get eyes set if it has a dome head?

Can't reach the eye?

...because of the way they cut their eyes, they needed flat glass eyes. Unfortunately, these were almost
impossible to insert into Santa head without a hole in the top of the head & such a small hole in the neck. The neck hole is too small to get a hand up into the head.
Through trial & error, we discovered that a small flat head screw can be attached to the back of the eye with a single drop of hot glue from a glue gun. The result is a
little "handle" that you can grab with a long tweezer to position into the head. Presto, it's much easier to insert these eyes.
