This Instructable shows you how to build a multipurpose holder for displaying everything from fruits & vegetables to your beloved cellphone charger using a simple metallic kitchen whisk.
You'll need a pincer tool, a metallic kitchen whisk (thanks to HBB for this one) and both of your hands.

Step 1: Remove central metallic holder

First of all you need to remove that metallic holder piece in the center of the whisk. Use a pincher to cut the metal next to the holes of each "arm" of the whisk. Then you can remove the metallic holder.

That's a great idea, but...

What happens when you've used a clove or two of the garlic bulb?

;-)

1 or 2 won't reduce the diameter of the bulb.

I love this idea! By modifying the shapes of the holding petals, stirring spoons and other kitchen utensils could be held.
And the reason I love it so much:
With a bit of extra wire, it could be modified to hold eggshell halves. Fill with soil and a seed, and it makes a great seed-starter!
Is there any way to add additional petals?

Maybe using 2 whisks... I'd love to see the more advanced designs you can come to.

this is soooo much more useful than a whisk. i love your way of thinking. thanks!

But, doesn't this come out expensive in proportion to the amount of stuff you can put in it ? Other than that, pretty functional :)

Awesome! I think you could probably also twist each loop into a figure 8 and hold two smaller items per loop.

so smart

Wow it looks great, and its very creative!

Genius! I love it. I want to go destroy my wisk now. Wisks come it lots of sizes, including very tiny, so this could be used for lots of things. I would like to do a grouping of three on my wall, sm, med, and lg. Thanks for a brilliant, simple and inexpensive idea. ( I was thinking, how cute with small terra cotta plant pots with cat grass or whathaveyou).
