Fruit or Veggie Pipe
Here’s an alternate method: Take a bucket or container that is bigger than the plastic bottle, and fill the container with water. Cut the plastic bottle in half and place the upper half into the larger container. Light your weed and slowly lift the bottle out of the container, which will fill the bottle with smoke. Then remove the bowl and inhale as you slowly push the bottle back into the water.
If you want to get really fancy, use a hollow pen as your mouthpiece and create a choke on the opposite side! Not only will your weed smell amazing, but it’ll taste fresh and fruity, as well.
This one’s quick and cute. Take a ballpoint pen, remove the ink, and that’s the downstem. Fashion a bowl out of tin foil, punch some holes in it, and attach to the pen. Now take an empty, clean “Honey Bear” container, poke a small hole in the bear’s belly, and insert your pen-and-foil bowl. Add some water to the bear and draw from the yellow tip where the honey comes out, and pretty soon, you’ll feel like Goldilocks — just right.
It’s a smoking staple to use an apple for this consumption method, but don’t be scared to try out a pear, watermelon, cucumber, or even a carrot. Just pick up your favorite fruit or veggie, bore a hole halfway through and another connecting tunnel to serve as your mouthpiece. For inspiration, we recommend Brett Stern’s 99 Ways to Make a Pipe.
Got killer weed but no bong? Well, it's time to get crafty and build yourself a pipe that would make Rube Goldberg proud.
After you’ve completed your water pipe, it’s time to grind your weed, pack a bowl and spark it. Take your hit by inhaling through your mouthpiece at the same time that you burn the bowl. The smoke will filter through the water, fill up the bottle, and ultimately find its way into your lungs.
Begin by cutting a small hole about three or four inches from the base of your air-tight container. Make the hole just big enough to fit the pen snuggly inside, keeping in mind that the device will need to be air-tight in order to work.
A water pipe (or bong or bubbler) is an easy way to filter some carcinogens out of combusted marijuana. Though there are plenty of places where you can buy your own pipe, why not tap into a little stoner-inspired creativity and make your own?
If you’ve added a carburetor, release your finger from the hole a few seconds before your lungs are full to clear the chamber of what could become stale smoke. If there is no carb but you need to clear your chamber anyway, do so by blowing through the bowl rather than the mouthpiece to avoid bong water showers.

Attach the bowl to the end of pen, then use your adhesive to seal it in place. Remember to include holes for the smoke to pass through, which you can make using a knife or thumb tack.
If your container has a mouthpiece that’s well away from the bowl, proceed to the next step. If there is no pre-established mouthpiece, add another hole near the top of the bottle, far enough to avoid inhaling bong water later. You can add another pen to create the mouthpiece or just take your pull from the hole you just created (if you do decide to add a pen, remember to seal it off).
Finally, add enough water to cover the base of the lower pen (this is called a stem). You can also add an additional hole as a corroborator to help clear the chamber of your water pipe, just be sure you can plug it with a finger and that it is far enough away from the water to avoid leaks.
