No pipe? No papers? No problem. This is how to make a homemade bong that pulls perfectly every time. Every cannabis lover has encountered a moment where they have flower, but have no way to consume it. With this guide on how to make a bong, you will be prepared for whatever life throws at you.
What You’ll Need To Make A Homemade Bong:
- A pen with a metal tip
- An empty water bottle
- A lighter
- Ground cannabis
How To Make A Bong:
Step 1: Before you do anything to your water-bottle, construct what will become the shaft of your bong. To do this, you’re just going to make a pen-pipe. If you want a full, in-depth explanation (with photos) for how this is done, read this. Otherwise, I’ll paraphrase. The pen you use should ideally be made entirely out of metal. But if that’s not possible, at least make sure it has an unscrew-able metal top. Unscrew that top, and using a butter knife, pop out the little bottom piece. Remove the ink tube, and any other little parts (like the spring) so that only the pen’s shaft and metal screw-on top is left. Turn the metal screw on top upside-down and shove the pointed end into the pen’s shaft so that it stays firmly in the shaft. Discard any other pieces of the pen.
Step 2: If your water bottle isn’t already empty, empty it and remove the cap. Next, you’re going to use a lighter to create a small hole in the bottom third of the water bottle. (Imagine two lines dividing the water bottle divided into three parts. The hole should be directly where the bottom line is). To do this properly, make sure you have the empty pen-pipe you just constructed on hand. Then, briefly hold the flame of your lighter against the water bottle’s bottom third.
Once you see a small hole open up in the bottle’s plastic, quickly shove the bottom of the pen-pipe through the hole. If you do this correctly, since the plastic was still hot, it should mold pretty tightly around the pen shaft. If the hole wasn’t big enough for the pen shaft to fit through, quickly hold the lighter against the plastic again, and try again. The bottom of the pen pipe should point downwards towards the bottom of the water bottle.
Step 3: No matter how talented you are at lighting holes in water bottles, chances are your shaft is not air-tight in your water bottle. Therefore, you’re going to need to create a seal around its outside. The easiest way to do this is to chew up a piece of gum, then wrap it around the pen shaft right where it connects to the water bottle, creating a seal.
Step 4: Fill up your water bottle, but just enough so that a portion of the pen shaft is under water. Do not fill up the water bottle enough that the water meets the part of the bottle where the pen penetrates the bottle or the gum will get wet and may fall off.
Step 5: You should have a fully functioning water bottle bong! All you need to do is full up the metal pen tip with cannabis, and light it while inhaling through the top of the water bottle.

#1 The Old School Plastic Bottle Bong
We’ve all enjoyed a plastic bottle bong before now, right? Remember at those house parties when you were young, tight on cash and wanting to get high? There would always be that genius who would present a makeshift bong made from an old plastic bottle, although nobody ever saw it get made! Well, today we are going to be showing you exactly how to create your very own plastic bottle bong for those rainy days in!
What You Will Need:
- Cannabis (of course)
- A clean plastic bottle
- A pen or other sharp object to make small holes with
- A small tube, such as an empty highlighter pen
- Tin foil
- A pin
- First things first, take your empty plastic bottle and fill it a quarter of the way full with tap water. N.b. The larger the plastic bottle, the more smoke you will get and the bigger the high!
- Using your pen or another sharp object, pierce a small, rounded hole just below the neck of the bottle. This will be the carb which you cover with your finger to prevent the smoke from escaping before you are ready.
- Using your pen or sharp object again, pierce another small hole lower down, just above the waterline. This will be where your downstem goes.
- To make your downstem, merely take a tube – we used a highlighter with the center removed.
- Using a small amount of foil, wrap it around the wide end of the tube/highlighter and then press down gently into the center to make a bowl.
- Take your pin to create around 5-6 small holes in the foil. This will help the smoke get through.
- Once you are happy with your downstem, gently push it, smallest end first, into the second hole that you made. You should be able to submerge the end of the downstem into the water comfortably.
- Pack your bowl, and give her a go!
