You can also get pipe screens made from quartz, which are even more heat-resistant than glass. Replaceable glass or quartz screens aren’t as common as the aforementioned options, with most high-quality glass bongs incorporating borosilicate or quartz screens right into their design. These often feature decoratively placed holes instead of the ultra-fine mesh of brass or steel.
You can customise things further by changing the type and quantity of fruit. Essentially, anything will work as long as you can build an airflow system like with the apple. You can even stack vegetables and fruit together to build a larger and tastier bong. You might even be able to add water if you use a pineapple, for example. Or, try doing it with a coconut and use its natural water! For this, you would stick a hollow tube through the side, carve out the top and pull from there. Surely sounds delicious.
Because steel screens are not as malleable as brass, fitting them into odd-shaped bowls can be a little more finicky.
Brass screens are perhaps the most common, featuring in tobacco pipes and many glass and ceramic bongs. You can get them at just about any tobacco store or headshop for little money. These circle-shaped cut-outs are made from brass mesh, with each screen about the size of a small coin. Brass has the advantage that you can bend it easily; this way, you can fit these screens easily into various bowl sizes. If you happen to have brass screens that are a tiny bit too large for your bowl, you can easily cut them to size.
Nonetheless, the factors mentioned don’t include “high.” That’s because, technically, you’ll be consuming the same amount of THC if you’re using the same quantity of the same marijuana flower. Even if not the most pleasant, these stoner MacGyver techniques will surely be effective. Just use them wisely.
You can also make a screen from a paperclip or a similar piece of stiff wire. Bend the wire into a spiral and position it snugly in the bowl. This can work as a halfway-decent screen that keeps larger chunks of ash and weed in your pipe.
There is really no “best” type of screen—what’s most important is that it fits snugly into your bowl. You know your screen fits if it doesn’t pop out after pressing it down into your bowl. The rest, whether you prefer steel, brass, or glass screens, is up to you.
Whether you make your pipe from a soda can or piece of fruit, you’ll want a pipe screen to use with it. If you smoke your weed without a screen, it could be quite an unpleasant experience. A screen keeps the loose bits in your pipe instead of in your mouth, so you can enjoy hitting your bong much more!
Since this article is about making a homemade bong, chances are you don’t have any actual pipe screens around. In this case, you can make some DIY pipe screens for single-time use. Here are your options:
It's 3am and you finally finished that paper. There's not a place open and you still want that smoke before bed. We have the solution for you!
Soda Can
Got killer weed but no bong? Well, it’s time to get crafty and build yourself a pipe that would make Rube Goldberg proud.
This one’s quick and cute. Take a ballpoint pen, remove the ink, and that’s the downstem. Fashion a bowl out of tin foil, punch some holes in it, and attach to the pen. Now take an empty, clean “Honey Bear” container, poke a small hole in the bear’s belly, and insert your pen-and-foil bowl. Add some water to the bear and draw from the yellow tip where the honey comes out, and pretty soon, you’ll feel like Goldilocks — just right.
This one’s down and dirty, and super-easy if you’re in a bind. Heat two knives over a stove, campfire, grill, etc. Be careful not to burn yourself with the hot knives. Once the knives are extremely hot, take one, place your cannabis onto the blade (note: hash, extracts, and concentrates will work much better than flower), and then make a sandwich with the other hot knife on top and your weed in the middle. When smoke begins to rise, inhale. You can also use a paper towel roll or empty plastic bottle for a funnel.
Fruit or Veggie Pipe
Hot Knives

If you want to get really fancy, use a hollow pen as your mouthpiece and create a choke on the opposite side! Not only will your weed smell amazing, but it’ll taste fresh and fruity, as well.
Here’s an alternate method: Take a bucket or container that is bigger than the plastic bottle, and fill the container with water. Cut the plastic bottle in half and place the upper half into the larger container. Light your weed and slowly lift the bottle out of the container, which will fill the bottle with smoke. Then remove the bowl and inhale as you slowly push the bottle back into the water.
