Here's how to do it.
This instructable was brought to you by Krylon.
Step 1: Get PVC pipe and paint
In the picture are the PVC pipes cut to 5' lengths. Easily done by cutting the standard 10' length in half with a saw. Bring a saw to the hardware store and you can easily cut these down to size in the parking lot for easier transport.
You'll also need some paint. I used Krylon® Fusion for Plastic in Satin White and Dual™ Paint + Primer in Banner Red
Step 2: Bring the heat
Also, PVC is known to offgas some nasty stuff when being burned so also be sure to do this in a well-ventilated area AND wear a respirator. Be safe and healthy, everyone.
Step 3: Clean and paint
Step 4: Mask the stripes
Step 5: Paint it red
Let the paint dry to the touch and you can peel off the masking tape. You'll want to wait a full 24 hours to be sure it's as strong as it can be.
