Making a homemade pipe out of an old pen

To make this homemade pipe, you must have a pen with a metal tip and a plastic body.

  1. Dismantle your pen and take the metal tip and the plastic body. You will use the pen’s tip as the bowl and this will be placed at one end of the body of the pen.
  2. Invert the metal tip so that the pointed end where the ink flows through is inside the plastic body.
  3. Heat the opening of the plastic pen body where the tip is so that the plastic will melt a little and stick to the metal inverted tip. The two should properly connect so that the dried weed in the bowl won’t spill when in use.
  4. Use a small piece of aluminum foil to cover the top of the inverted tip. Use your fingers to carefully depress the aluminum inside the inverted tip. Now you have created a bowl which will hold your weed. Use a toothpick to punch very small holes on the bowl where smoke will pass.
  5. Now you have your homemade pipe made of an old pen. Test it by loading the bowl with dried weed and smoking it. Apply heat to the bowl and smoke your cannabis.

Making a homemade pipe out of fruits and veggies

fruits and veggies

This method of making homemade pipes is fast gaining popularity. Not only can you get fruits and vegetables anywhere but these food items even add flavor to an otherwise dull weed.

  1. Use any kind of fruit or vegetable; the steps on how to make a pipe are the same for all kinds of fruits or vegetables but remember, the larger, the more hits you can get. For this tutorial, we will use a big apple.
  2. Remove the top of the apple by cutting it with a knife. Set the piece aside and core the apple. Remove all the meat inside the apple till you get a hollowed fruit.
  3. Use a knife to create a hole near the bottom of the apple. This will be your mouthpiece. The hole should be as wide as the body of an old pen.
  4. Take the pen’s body and stick it inside the hole. Now you have a portable, apple smoking device. You may now place dried weed in and smoke it by burning the weed with a lighter or a torch. The pen body is your mouthpiece.
  5. You may also use a small piece of aluminum foil as a bowl. Punch small holes using a toothpick before placing your dried weed.

Making a homemade pipe out of a coconut


Coconuts are versatile indeed. Aside from being used as oil, food, medicine, building materials and for many household products, it could even be the perfect, natural bong.

  1. Choose a young coconut; this has more water than meat.
  2. Drill a hole on top of the coconut. You may also use a large, sharp knife to cut the top.
  3. Be careful not to spill the water inside the coconut because you can use this instead of plain water for your pipe.
  4. Now drill a hole just below the middle of the coconut to insert an old pen. This will be your mouthpiece. The pen should fit perfectly otherwise it will wobble and only spill the coconut water inside.
  5. Use a small piece of aluminum foil to make a bowl for the dried weed. As always, punch small holes on the foil to let the smoke in. The foil should be depressed a little into the coconut just like a bowl.
  6. Now your coconut pipe is ready. Just add dried weed on top and light it up. Your weed will taste like delicious coconut once the smoke blends with the coconut water inside the nut.

Making a homemade pipe out of a plastic bottle

plastic bottle

Use a clean and thick plastic bottle for this project. The larger the bottle, the more hits you can make.

  1. Cut a hole for the mouthpiece. Use a sharp knife and place an old pen or glass tubing inside the hole. Secure this with hot glue.
  2. Remove the plastic cap and replace this with aluminum foil with holes made by punching with a toothpick. Depress the foil into the mouth of the bottle to create the bowl.
  3. Fill the bottle with water or juice (any kind of artificial or natural fruit juice will make your hits fruitier!). Place the bowl on top and place dried weed in. Don’t pack it so much to let air pull through.
  4. Start smoking your weed by using a lighter or torch. You will be able to pull smoke through inside the bottle. Remove the bowl and inhale.
  5. If you have had a hit and have more smoke, you can cover this with the bottle cap and save it for later.

As with all these homemade contraptions, you can discard these when you are done. Never leave these items anywhere there are children and pets. Be safe and stay
