How to Make an Apple Bong in Easy Steps

If you are looking for a simple and cheap way to enjoy your herb or tobacco, you might want to try making an apple bong. An apple bong is a homemade pipe that uses an apple as the main component. Apples are easy to find, cheap to buy, and can be poked through easily to form chambers and tunnels. You can place your herb or tobacco on top of the apple and inhale the smoke through a hole inside. Apples are also biodegradable, so you can dispose of them without harming the environment.

There are different ways to make an apple bong, but the basic principle is the same: you need to create a bowl, a mouthpiece, and a carb hole. The bowl is where you put your herb or tobacco, the mouthpiece is where you inhale the smoke, and the carb hole is where you control the airflow. Here are two methods to make an apple bong using common household items.

Method 1: Making an Apple Bong Using a Pen

This method is considered “pure” because all you need to make it is an apple and a pen with a sharp tip. You can use any type of apple, but make sure it is fresh and firm. A soft apple could collapse while you’re trying to bore the holes. You can use any type of pen, but it’s ideal to use one that you can unscrew and take out the ink well. Otherwise, you may spill ink all over the apple.

  1. Remove the stem from the apple. You can use your fingers to twist or pull it off or cut a slit around the stem to remove it. Make sure you get the entire stem; if it breaks, dig into the hole with your fingers and remove it from the base.
  2. Bore a hole through the top of the apple. Place the pointed tip of the pen over the hole where the stem used to be and jam it into the apple at a slight angle. Push it into the apple until you’ve made a hole that extends about halfway through the apple. If the apple is difficult to push through, it may help to use a twisting motion as you push. Once you make the initial hole with the pen’s tip, you can remove the pen, unscrew the tip, and use the tip-less pen to push into the apple. The apple will slide into the hollow pen. When you’re finished making the hole, remove the pen and discard the apple piece.
  3. Bore a second hole near the bottom of the apple. It should be about half an inch from the hole at the apple’s base. Insert the pen and poke a hole that meets up with the first hole you poked.
  4. Bore a third hole on the side of the apple. Insert the pen into the apple an inch or a little more from the top hole. Push the pen into the apple until the third hole meets up with the chamber system you have created. This hole will serve as the carb, so it should be in a place that is convenient to cover with a finger while you’re lighting up.
  5. Make a bowl. Use the pen or another object to carve out a hollow shape on the top of the apple where
    the first hole was drilled.

Congratulations! You have just made an apple bong using a pen. To use it, fill up your bowl with your herb or tobacco of choice, cover up your carb hole with your finger, light up your bowl, and inhale through
the mouthpiece at the bottom of your apple.

Method 2: Making a Hollowed-Out Apple Bong

This method is slightly more complicated than method 1, but it allows you to create a larger bowl and
a smoother smoke. You will need:

  • A knife
  • A spoon
  • An apple
  • A hollow pen
  • Herb or tobacco
  • A lighter
  1. Cut off about an inch from
    the top of your apple using
    a sharp knife. Slide off
    the top and remove
    the stem. Do not cut too close
    the stem because
    you will need
    to use
    the top like
    a bowl.
  2. Use
    a spoon
    to scoop out
    the flesh of
    the apple from
    the inside,
    leaving about half an inch of thickness around
    the walls.
    Be careful not
    to puncture
    the bottom or
    the sides of
    the apple.
  3. Poke
    a hole through one side of
    the apple using
    the hollow pen. This will be your mouthpiece. Make sure
    the hole reaches
    the hollow center of
    the apple.
  4. Poke another hole on the opposite side of the apple using the pen. This will be your carb hole. Make sure the hole meets up with the mouthpiece hole inside the apple.
  5. Place the top of the apple back on the hollowed-out base. Use the pen to poke a hole through the top, creating a tunnel that connects to the hollow center of the apple. This will be your bowl.

Voila! You have just made a hollowed-out apple bong. To use it, fill up your bowl with your herb or tobacco of choice, cover up your carb hole with your finger, light up your bowl, and inhale through the mouthpiece on the side of your apple.

Tips and Warnings

  • Do not use a pencil to poke holes in your apple. It is likely to break inside the apple while you’re trying to make a hole with it.
  • Do not use an apple bong that has been sitting around for too long. It may start to rot and affect the taste and quality of your smoke.
  • Do not reuse an apple bong more than once or twice. It is meant to be a disposable pipe that you can make quickly and easily when you don’t have anything else to smoke out of.
  • Do not eat your apple bong after using it. It may contain ash, resin, and other harmful substances that you don’t want to ingest.


An apple bong is a fun and easy way to enjoy your herb or tobacco when you don’t have a regular pipe or bong handy. All you need is an apple, a pen, and some creativity. You can make an apple bong using a pen or by hollowing out the apple and turning it into a bong. Either way, you will get a smooth and flavorful smoke that will make you appreciate nature’s gifts.
