How to make a Barn Wood effect. Start with new wood. Then with the paintbrush, paint a layer of water and then a layer of stain and rub it off quickly with a rag to get that gray color. The water keeps the stain from getting too far in the wood so it’ll be gray not black.
The Zookeeper’s Blanket is an adorable baby blanket featuring an entire zoo of 30 different animals! This project is perfect for using up scrap yarn, and since each square is different, you’ll never be bored watching each sweet little animal take shape. This blanket is entirely crocheted without buttons, so it’s safe for even the littlest of zookeepers!
