Rowdy sports fans were on to something with the beer helmet – sip brews while keeping both hands free for nachos. Cannabis users can create their own version for hands-free enjoyment by creating their own beer helmet bong, which uses two cannisters instead of beer cans for the ultimate double-chamber creation. You’ll likely need a friend to light it (both chambers at once!), but if you offer to switch off rounds using the helmet, you’ll find some willing participants.
“What is this, a bong for ants?” Could be, but it’s also a super easy, super portable, and super awesome DIY bong – plus, with Tic Tacs costing around a buck, it’s very cost effective. Basically, take an empty Tic Tac container, put a little water in it, cut a hole in the side for a bowl piece, and enjoy on the go. Watch the video below to see a Tic Tac Bong in action.

Those iconic honey bear containers can be easily made into a makeshift pipe. You’ll have to empty out all the honey first, of course – so some people suggest just buying a never-been-filled bear since sticky honey is hard to clean out. Honey bear bongs are such a tried-and-true DIY method that Brad Pitt used one in a Quentin Tarantino movie.
Sturdy and found growing wild in much of the world, or maybe in your carefully cared for home garden, bamboo is a no-brainer material for DIY paraphernalia. The video below shows how to make a bamboo bong; for many folks, the allure of using bamboo is that it can be used to make bongs of (sometimes ridiculously) great heights. For cannabis creatives interested in something smaller, that hits very hard (and very harsh), try your hand at crafting a bamboo steamroller.
It is here that true genius may shine through as Marijuana MacGyvers reveal themselves to be the resourceful, gifted ganja connoisseurs they really are. Everybody has probably made a pipe out of an apple at some point (or, maybe, an aluminum can – which can’t be good for your health) which is a great method in a pinch. But others have engineered smoking solutions that would make Rube Goldberg proud – using objects the rest of the world would never consider to make homemade bongs and pipes.
Some might call this desecrating a cherished childhood toy – we think it’s an upgrade that makes it more practical for today’s day and age.

Just be aware that repeated heat applied to these gummy squares is eventually going to result in one crazy mess. So smoke fast and dispose of properly so it doesn’t get caught in the carpet or someone’s hair.

Though it’s more pipe than bong, we had to include this candy bong for sheer inventiveness. Just poke the appropriate holes in a number of chewy candies, load the bowl, and light away.

There’s nothing quite like pulling a beer bottle from the garbage (your own garbage, please), drilling a hole in the side, inserting your stem and bowl, and hitting for the fences. It’s profoundly liberating and hearkens back to the days when you built forts out of blankets and pillows.
But once you conquer this engineering hurdle, you’ve got a fun and festive (not to mention disposable) bong that can be the life of the party. Add some other fruits like pineapple and watermelon and you’ve got a truly unique bong that everyone will appreciate.
I doubt the sculptors were thinking about that when they put this thing together—they just wanted to get high—but the use of natural material and finding a way to make it work is truly inspired. If you’re wondering how they hollowed it out, just watch this short video .
