To start, you will need a long chunk of aluminum foil, and it’s always best to keep it as wrinkle-free as possible, so be careful while you measure out an arm’s length of it from a roll.
It’s time to make the bowl of your homemade pipe, and it’s as easy as grabbing the widest end of the tube (if there is one) and twisting it just enough that you can bend the tip into a bowl shape before adjusting it so that it points upwards. Sometimes it also helps to keep a toothpick in the end of the tube that’s getting twisted to hold it open enough to maintain airflow.
Steps on how to make an aluminum homemade pipe
A good weed pipe needs a strong draw, a seal, a stem, a mouthpiece, and bowl, and all of that might sound like a lot if you’re looking around for materials to use to build each individual piece from scratch, but learning how to make a pipe doesn’t have to be difficult, and it almost never requires more than one type of material if you put your mind to it. This aluminum weed pipe is made from 100% aluminum foil, and you won’t need a screen, glue, or anything else extra to make it all work.
- Aluminum foil
- Toothpick (or some other sharp-pointed tool)
Make sure that the entire piece of aluminum foil is rolled up, and once you find the edges, use a small amount of moisture or pressure to help hold it all together. Luckily aluminum foil is flexible, so this extra step isn’t always necessary.
This homemade pipe doesn’t need a screen because the hole inside of the bowl is small enough that it’s just not necessary, but you should know that they aren’t recommended for full-time use. They work as an excellent solution in a pinch, but aluminum foil isn’t going to hold up to more than a few uses before it’s ready for the recycling bin.
Now, take a draw through the open end of the makeshift weed pipe. If you feel too much hesitation, then you might have to untwist it a bit until you feel the seal break. Otherwise, you won’t be able to inhale your weed once it’s lit. If it’s good, then you are ready to move onto the next step.
Lay the aluminum foil down on a clean flat surface and fold it lengthways 3 times. Once you are done, you should have a shape that is close to a square with 3 layers of metal overlapping.
