How to Make a Homemade Bong

If you enjoy smoking herb or tobacco, you may want to try making your own bong at home. A bong is a device that filters the smoke through water, making it smoother and cooler. You can make a bong out of various materials, such as plastic bottles, fruits, or even pumpkins. In this blog post, we will show you how to make a homemade bong using some simple supplies and steps.

What You’ll Need

To make a homemade bong, you will need the following items:

  • A plastic bottle of any size. The larger the bottle, the bigger the hits will be.
  • A pen with the ink removed or a metal tube to use as a downstem.
  • A small piece of aluminum foil or a metal bowl to use as a bowl.
  • A sharp tool, such as a knife, scissors, or a paperclip, to make holes in the bottle.
  • Water to fill the bottle.
  • Herb or tobacco to pack the bowl.
  • A lighter to ignite the herb or tobacco.

How to Make a Homemade Bong

Follow these steps to make your homemade bong:

  1. Fill up the plastic bottle ΒΌ of the way with water. This is the water that will filter the smoke when you use the bong.
  2. Poke a hole just below the neck of the bottle to make the carb. The carb is the hole that you will cover with your finger at first and then let go of when you inhale the smoke. Make the hole large enough for air to flow through it, but not so big that you can’t cover it with your finger.
  3. Make another hole slightly above the waterline for the downstem. This is where you will insert the pen or metal tube that will hold the bowl. Make the hole about the same width as the pen or tube. If you are using a pen, you may need to melt the bottle with your lighter before poking the hole to create an airtight seal.
  4. Make a bowl out of foil or use a metal bowl. If you are using foil, wrap it around the wide end of the pen or tube and press it down to form a bowl shape. Poke some small holes in the foil so that the smoke can get through. If you are using a metal bowl, attach it to the end of the pen or tube.
  5. Push the open end of the downstem through the hole you made in step 3. Angle it downward so that it is submerged in the water. The bowl should be facing upward on the outside of the bottle.
  6. Pack some herb or tobacco into the bowl and light it with your lighter.
  7. Cover the carb with your finger and place your mouth over the mouthpiece of the bottle. Inhale slowly and gently until you see smoke filling up the bottle.
  8. Remove your finger from the carb and inhale sharply to clear the smoke from the bottle.

Tips and Tricks

Here are some tips and tricks to make your homemade bong experience more enjoyable:

  • You can use different kinds of bottles to make different kinds of bongs. For example, you can use a two-liter bottle to make a gravity bong, which uses water pressure to create huge hits. You can also use smaller bottles to make more portable bongs.
  • You can use different kinds of fruits and vegetables to make natural bongs. For example, you can use an apple, a carrot, or a bell pepper as a base and carve out a bowl and a downstem from them. You can also use seasonal produce, such as pumpkins or watermelons, to make festive bongs.
  • You can decorate your homemade bong with stickers, paint, or markers to make it more personalized and fun.
  • You can clean your homemade bong by rinsing it with hot water and soap after each use. You can also use rubbing alcohol and salt to remove any residue from the downstem and bowl.


Making a homemade bong is easy and fun. You can use materials that you have around your house or find at your local store. You can also get creative and experiment with different shapes and sizes of bongs. Just remember to be careful when making and using your homemade bong, and enjoy the smooth and cool hits that it provides.
