I'm always looking for simple ways to make pretty things for my gardens and outdoor spaces.

For this project all you need is some simple wire whisks. I pick these up at local thrift stores, usually for 25 to 50 cents each. I've also seen them at dollar stores.

Here are my five whisk tulips.

I spray painted my tulips red with a hint of yellow in the centers for interest, and the stems a lovely dark green.

I cut some leftover pvc pipe that I had into a variety of heights to use for stems.

And here are my finished whisk tulips. I spray painted the pvc stems the same color at the whisk stems, which just sit right in the pipes.


This project really couldn't be easier and you can spray paint the tulips any color you love.


Since I found the whisks at thrift stores, and I already had the spray paint and pvc pipe so I guesstimated the cost at bout $3. The time it took includes spray paint drying time.
