All you need is a saw, a drill (hell, you could probably do it all with a pocket knife in a pinch), a bowl, and a stem and you’ve got yourself a truly righteous, 100-percent natural bong that gets the job done and looks good doing it (just like me).
Though it’s more pipe than bong, we had to include this candy bong for sheer inventiveness. Just poke the appropriate holes in a number of chewy candies, load the bowl, and light away. As you’d probably expect, the smoke from this little doodad is a burst of fruit flavors and can make for a memorable toking experience.
Just polish of a can of these tasty potato crisps, punch a hole in the side of the canister, and you’re ready to rock. We’ve never tried this particular model of bong so we can’t attest to the flavor it creates, but we imagine that pretty much everything would be improved by the addition of a little salt and vinegar flavoring.
Just be aware that repeated heat applied to these gummy squares is eventually going to result in one crazy mess. So smoke fast and dispose of properly so it doesn’t get caught in the carpet or someone’s hair.
A serious need, a dash of ingenuity, and a sprinkle of creativity can produce some seriously cool things. Forget about the iPhone and virtual reality and indoor plumbing, we’re more concerned with how to get baked when the need arises.
Want to make your own homemade bong? The cannabis experts at Honest Marijuana provide plenty of inspiration with their list of the 15 best homemade bongs.
Sturdy and found growing wild in much of the world, or maybe in your carefully cared for home garden, bamboo is a no-brainer material for DIY paraphernalia. The video below shows how to make a bamboo bong; for many folks, the allure of using bamboo is that it can be used to make bongs of (sometimes ridiculously) great heights. For cannabis creatives interested in something smaller, that hits very hard (and very harsh), try your hand at crafting a bamboo steamroller.
It is here that true genius may shine through as Marijuana MacGyvers reveal themselves to be the resourceful, gifted ganja connoisseurs they really are. Everybody has probably made a pipe out of an apple at some point (or, maybe, an aluminum can – which can’t be good for your health) which is a great method in a pinch. But others have engineered smoking solutions that would make Rube Goldberg proud – using objects the rest of the world would never consider to make homemade bongs and pipes.
Warning: don’t get too excited before attempting to make this awesome N64 controller pipe. Think it through: will I still have enough controllers to play Mario Kart four-player? Yes? Then proceed with the below tutorial from Stoner Tourism, which will show you how to replace the joystick with a bowl piece and create one of the coolest homemade pieces of paraphernalia we’ve ever seen.
After your bottle of Jagermeister is bombed out, many folks just save the bottle as a decoration. Why not do something more with it? You can make a homemade bong out of most any glass bottle (see the video below to learn how), but this DIY bong gets serious bonus points in the ingenuity category for using an airplane empty bottle (50 ml) as an extra chamber.
Rowdy sports fans were on to something with the beer helmet – sip brews while keeping both hands free for nachos. Cannabis users can create their own version for hands-free enjoyment by creating their own beer helmet bong, which uses two cannisters instead of beer cans for the ultimate double-chamber creation. You’ll likely need a friend to light it (both chambers at once!), but if you offer to switch off rounds using the helmet, you’ll find some willing participants.
Those iconic honey bear containers can be easily made into a makeshift pipe. You’ll have to empty out all the honey first, of course – so some people suggest just buying a never-been-filled bear since sticky honey is hard to clean out. Honey bear bongs are such a tried-and-true DIY method that Brad Pitt used one in a Quentin Tarantino movie.
If the Halloween spirit hits you, a carved out pumpkin makes an excellent DIY bong. Though similar to an apple pipe, pumpkins are great because they come in different shapes and sizes. From miniatures to huge pumpkins, there’s a ganja gourd waiting to be made for smokers of all tolerances – so find a pumpkin that’s the right size for you, then follow along to the helpful video below.
Every cannabis user has been there: out-and-about or otherwise unprepared, caught bong-less at the most crucial of times.
When scrambling to make a DIY bong, you need something that is on-hand, easy to modify, and that you won’t miss too much. Everybody has some tupperware at home, it’s cheap, airtight, and won’t be a struggle to cut some holes in. Even better, using the different shapes and sizes of the tupperware you have makes for a fun exercise in DIY Marijuana MacGyver-ing. Check out this thread at Grasscity to get some inspiration.
