Concrete Snow People

I have been wanting to make snowmen and I
 started last night.
Used Portland cement, perlite, and peat moss mixed water in.
I took a long nail and put the balls on the nail.
It gives it strength.
Cut twigs for arms and inserted them when the
cement was drying.
Used tiny buttons and black snaps for eyes.
The noses are sculpty clay and wool for scarves.
My daughter helped me make them, it was a fun project.
Not as easy as I thought it would be though.
I gave some as gifts today and we will keep the rest.
Until next time....
