10 bongs made with household items

Precautions for making a homemade bong

Making a bong from scratch is a gratifying process. Before you start, consider these crucial tips: 

Avoid plastic and metal bowl pieces 

Sometimes your only option is a plastic bottle or a soda can, but inhaling aluminum or plastic-based fumes can be harmful. Using plastic to hold the smoke is fine, but using it as a bowl piece causes it to melt, releasing a dangerous vapor. 

Use only good quality food 

When considering how to make homemade bongs, ensure you use fresh items. Golden rule: If you can’t eat it, you can't smoke out of it. Moldy food will fall apart and may affect the aroma, so aim for delicious firm items like certain fruits and vegetables. 


10 Homemade bongs for you to try

The beauty of a homemade weed bong is its simplicity. You’ll only need one of two things: 

  • Firm food item
  • Stable household item

Using everyday household items, you can make innovative pipes, a homemade bong bowl, and so much more. Let’s get started with our easy-to-follow guide to DIY bongs. 


Gravity bong

Go big or go home. If; you’re ready to dive right in, use a gravity bong. A homemade gravity bong requires a few items and will help you get the most out of your weed. 

You will need: 

  • Small plastic bottle
  • Large plastic bottle 
  • Scissors or knife 
  • Aluminum foil 


  1. Cut the bottom off the small bottle. 
  2. Create a bowl by removing the cap and replacing it with a layer of foil. 
  3. Fill the large bottle or another similar container with water. Don’t overfill it.
  4. Place the smaller bottle into the larger bottle. Pack the bowl and light it.
  5. Slowly raise the bottle to create a suction effect. This action will fill the smaller bottle with smoke. 
  6. As the bottom reaches the water, remove the foil and take a deep pull.

Pumpkin bong

Nothing screams happy Halloween more than smoking out of a pumpkin. The comforting essence and large size are perfect for your next chill session with friends.

You will need:

  • Straw or similar item
  • Metal nut (optional)


  1. Hollow out the pumpkin and remove the skin from the bits where the mouthpiece and bowl will go. 
  2. Carve out a bowl on one side of the pumpkin. Alternatively, pierce a hole on one side so a metal nut can be fitted and used as a bowl instead. 
  3. Stab a straw into the side of the pumpkin opposite the bowl to create a mouthpiece.
  4. Pack the bowl, light up and enjoy. 

Toilet paper roll bong

If you don’t have a toilet paper roll in your house, then you have bigger problems than what to smoke out of. This is one of the most straightforward homemade bong ideas.

You will need:

  • Toilet paper roll
  • Aluminum foil
  • Pen or pencil


  1. Remove excess toilet paper stuck around the roll. 
  2. Puncture a hole on one end of the roll using a pen or pencil. This will be the bowl. 
  3. Line that hole with aluminum foil and puncture small holes in it.
  4. Pack the bowl, light it up and use the other end as a mouthpiece. 

Pineapple bong 

If your pineapple express seeds have given you tasty buds that are ready for smoking, what better way than through a pineapple? This simple homemade bong is the perfect fruity treat and a healthy snack for when the munchies hit. 

You will need: 

  • A whole pineapple

  4. Attach your joint to the side tubing. 
  5. Fill the pineapple with enough water to cover the side tube. Close the top, light, and smoke away.

Apple bong

An apple bong is the ultimate school stoner invention. When it comes to making a homemade bong, this is as minimalist as it gets. 

You will need:

  • An apple 
  • A pen 


  1. Using a pen, poke a hole through the top and on one side of the apple.

You will need:

Mason jar bong 

A homemade mason jar bong is a complex task, but it’s a thing of beauty. It’s also a perfect DIY gift for your stoner friends if you pack it with delicious buds or Girl Scout Cookies seeds.

You will need: 

  • A jam jar 
  • A wrench socket 
  • A sharp knife 
  • Plastic tubing 
  • Electrical tape 
  • A screen 
  • Silicone gun

Tic Tac bong 

Dynamite comes in small packages, and so does this Tic Tac homemade bong. What’s more, you’ll get minty-fresh breath with every puff you take. 

You will need: 

  • Tic Tac container 
  • Bowl or downstem 
  • Knife 


  1. Empty the Tic Tacs (preferred method is orally). 
  2. Make a hole on the side by heating up a spot with your lighter. That’ll make it easier to make an incision with your knife.

  4. Pack the bowl and add water through the top.
  5. Light it and smoke from the opening in the lid.

  4. Cut an opening on the side of the bottle and insert the pen.
  5. Create another hole to act as a carb hole. 
  6. Add water. Pack the bowl. Light it up and enjoy. 

Liquor bottle bong 

Alcohol and weed are never recommended together, but who says you can’t smoke out of a liquor bottle. The process is similar to a homemade water bottle bong, but you’ll get extra street cred.
