How to make a pipe – Tips to follow 

1. Keep clear off plastic bowls

I know that the desperate moment doesn’t really give you enough time to put your brain into action, but make sure you stay away from plastic bowls. The obvious reason is that plastic is not heat resistant and will melt when lit. And they’re pretty toxic too! You can use a plastic container to hold the smoke, but the bowl is always metal or non-plastic. 

2. Food Items – Select them carefully

If you know a thing or two about good homemade pipes, they are usually made from fruits and vegetables. I will be explaining how, but before you start, make sure the food item is not rotten, or wrinkled and clumsy. We want to have a sturdy and ripe body. Mushy food items will collapse and make this entire event unsuccessful.

3. Screening

Screening is important! It helps to keep the unwanted ash and gunk from entering your smoke and ruining your evening. Make sure you always use a screen with whatever you are smoking, whenever possible. Whether you use Metal screens, Glass or quartz screens or Brass screen; the choice is yours. 

Now, are you ready to finally have an answer to how to make a homemade pipe? Brace yourself; we are going to be very innovative and peculiar.

The Soda Can Pipe

The Soda Can Pipe is another one of the simplest methods. All you really need is a metal soda can and a knife. The mouthpiece is already right there for you, so all you have to do is make the side into a bowl.

Make a dent in the side of your can then use a knife or needle to create holes. This is where you place your weed and light it. Inhale from the mouthpiece of the can and you’ll get smooth hits with solid airflow.

While this is one of the easiest homemade pipes to make, it’s not the best. Burning soda cans can often result in inhaling toxins due to the paint on the side. However, if you have no other options, it’s very effective.

Another homemade smoking device that really doesn’t require much other than a knife and some water is the Ice Block Pipe. You’ll want to freeze a large block of ice using a container in your freezer.

Once you have your block of ice, you’ll need to carefully carve out a hole through the end to make a stem and mouthpiece and another hole in the side to use for a bowl. Now, just put your weed in the bowl, light, and inhale.

The Ice Block Pipe will give you incredibly smooth and cool hits. Although it can be tricky to carve the perfect pipe out of ice, you can get specially-designed molds to make things easier.


From plastic containers to pieces of food, these are some of the best ways to make a homemade pipe or bong. However, while these methods are a lot of fun and can help you out in drastic situations, it’s best to buy a high-quality device for smoking.
