Decorating For Halloween With A Soup Sock

Other than my friend, Ken – who is a gourmet soup chef, not many of us even know what a soup sock is. A soup sock is a loosely woven cotton bag that is used to hold poultry and beef parts when boiling for soup stock. A package of 3 costs less than $4.00 and can be found in the soup section of your supermarket. This provided me with an ideal web-like cover for my glass globes. Simply open the soup sock and slip it around your glass vessel and cut to size. Make sure the soup sock doesn’t hang over the top of the flame.


The loose weave of a cotton soup sock resembles a spiderweb – and fits easily around a glass vessel that holds a candle.

    The soup sock is also great for preparing a great clam bake. By placing individual servings in a bag prior to placing into the soup stock (beer) it makes them much easier to serve after completed. Just remove the sock, place directly onto the plate and cut open to serve. Add one of Camilla’s table decorations and viola !
