Yes folks it's that Sarah Raven time of year again! That time when we all peruse Sarah's lovely, lovely catalogues full of lovely, lovely things. You know that deep inside you really, really want her Chrimbo decorations so so just go ahead and treat yourselves.
"But what of the poor people?" the Sock hears you all ask. "Surely Christmas is also for the poor people - after all it's not like Mary and Joseph could afford a decent hotel is it..?"
So the Sock is coming to the rescue of the poundland shopping poor people and each week will show you how they too can have lovely, lovely decorations like Sarah's.
Unfortunately Sarah's lovely silver sprayed alliums (at only £12.00) are out of stock but the Sock will demonstrate how you can easily achieve this effect at home.
Step one -cut a dried flowerhead from the garden. If you can't afford alliums a garlic chive head will do as well.
Step two - find the kitten has stolen the chive head the minute you turned your back so go and cut another one.
Step 3 - place the stem in a plant pot of soil to hold the garlic chive head rigid
Step 4 - spray with a can old paint spray that has been kicking around for years - in this case the Sock used black to achieve a 'goth' effect but other colours can be used.
Step 5 - Et voila! A sprayed chive head that will look wonderful on your Christmas table.
Step 6 - Try explaining to the Bedsock why you have got black paint spray all over the wall which will cost a fortune to clean off and repaint.
Next week the Sock will show the poor people how to make a lovely place name for the table for under 99p.
