How To Make A Homemade Bong With Different Materials

Shoot – your bong broke and shipping takes a while. The good news is that with a couple of household items and a dash of resourcefulness, you can craft your own bong to use for the time being. These are also handy if you wish to explore the world of smoking weed through a bong but you are not yet sure if you want to commit to one.  

Creative Homemade Bongs To Try

Water Bottle Bong

  • 16.9-ounce plastic water bottle
  • Toothpick
  • Needle
  • 2.5” x 2.5” tinfoil square
  • Empty ballpoint pen (optional)
Take a 16.9-ounce plastic water bottle. You may use soda bottles for as long as there is no sugary or sticky residue. Remove the contents, cap, and label. Next, pour in some water to keep the bottle upright. Next, take a piece of tinfoil and cut it out to measure 2.5 by 2.5 inches. It should be large enough to cover the entire bottle opening. Apply the tinfoil by folding it over the opening and pressing your thumb to mold it in shape. The top should form a depressed bowl shape, deep enough to carry your weed. Take a toothpick and poke 4 to 5 holes into the depressed tinfoil bowl. The holes must be far apart so that the tinfoil bowl will not break. They should also be small enough so that the cannabis won’t fall through. Next, punch a hole at the side of the bottle, somewhere above the label. This will serve as the mouthpiece. This does not have to be too big. You can just pierce the bottle with a needle and then wiggle it around to make it larger. Then, stick the blade of a pair of scissors and cut a slit that measures about an inch in diameter. Make sure to support the bottle so that you won’t rip it. Pack the depressed tinfoil bowl with enough cannabis to cover the base. Do not pack in too much as that could disrupt the circulation or result in an uneven burn. Cover the side hole with your mouth, light the cannabis with a lighter, and then inhale. The bottle should be filled with smoke. If it is too uncomfortable for you to press your mouth against the side of the bottle, you can always insert a makeshift pipe like an empty ballpoint pen. Seal the point where it meets the bottle with some tape. Use this as a straw to inhale the smoke.

DIY Bong Using Fruit

  • Fresh apple
  • Empty ballpoint pen
  • Knife
This may seem weird, but it is actually a proven and tested method that results in a tasty way to consume your cannabis. For this, you can use practically any fruit and turn it into a functioning bong. Let’s start with the classic: an apple. An apple has been used by smokers because of its perfect shape. It has a concave top that securely carried your buds. Take a fresh apple because this one is firmer and less likely to collapse than an old one. Use the tube of a ballpoint pen and pierce the apple from the top and diagonally. You may need to cut out the stem first with a knife. Next, jam the pen near the bottom of the apple. This should be about half an inch from the bottom. Insert it upward until it meets with the first hole you created. Lastly, create the third hole from the top until it meets with the chamber you created. This will serve as a carb. You can just cover it while you are lighting the weed. Take your knife and carve out a bowl on top. This should be a depressed bowl enough to carry your weed. Hold the apple with one hand. Make sure to have a finger ready to cover the carb hole as you light the weed with the other hand. Inhale slowly, and you will experience a sweet twist to smoking cannabis.

DIY Bong With Aluminum Foil

  • 12” x 12” inch aluminum foil
  • Pencil
  • Card
An aluminum foil pipe is one of the easiest DIY pipes to make in case of an emergency where you do not have your bong at hand. However, this DIY pipe must be used cautiously. You need to keep an eye out on whether or not the material is degrading because the burnt particles can be hazardous. As such, it helps to replace your DIY aluminum foil with a new one every now and then. Take your square of aluminum foil. Make sure to have a clean sheet to start with. Any moisture or food residue can combust or affect the flavor of your marijuana. Then, fold the aluminum foil in half. Make sure to keep it smooth and flat as you go. Proceed carefully so as not to tear or wrinkle the material. Fold it in half once more which should leave you with a 6” by 6” square with four layers. The layers will prevent the pipe from overheating so it is comfortable to use. Take a corner of the square, place a pencil on top, and then roll it. Make sure to roll while at a slight angle so that you will have a slightly conical structure. Measure an inch at the conical end and crease it with a credit card. Lift it up and fix the edges so it becomes a bowl for your marijuana. The crease will also prevent the buds from traveling to the other end which is the mouthpiece. Remove the pencil, place some weed, light it up, and smoke away! With some basic household items and a touch of creativity, you too can enjoy your cannabis.
