How To Make A Bong Out of Your Kitchen Utensils

September 05, 2023

The methods for crafting bongs from kitchen items are as diverse as the bongs themselves. Most smokers prefer easy-to-make, cost-effective, and straightforward bong-making techniques. This article aims to provide you with a basic understanding of the best ways to create your own bong at home

A bong can be made out of almost anything

You can make a bong out of almost anything. You've probably seen the classic two-part glass bong with a bowl and a mouthpiece. In fact, that's the type of bong you learn how to make in your first year of high school.

If you look around your room right now, you'll likely find something within reach that could be used to make a bong. For example, a glass bottle works pretty well as a makeshift one. But before you consider smashing bottles on your friends' heads, let's take a moment to discuss how you can properly make one from scratch.

How To Make A Homemade Bong

This is a fun, easy, and inexpensive way to make your own homemade bong. You don't need any fancy tools or equipment. This is a project that can be done by anyone with basic DIY skills and the right materials.

1. Mason-Jar Bong

Mason jars are essentially airtight and watertight, making them ideal for creating your homemade kitchen-drawer bong. You only need a few common household items that most people have lying around.

  • You'll need something to make the bowl out of, and you can use almost anything that can handle hot water and be pierced with a skewer. Consider options like cleaned-out tuna cans, plastic spoons, plastic cups, or tin foil. Ensure there are no sharp edges or holes that would let air escape from the mouthpiece – that would defeat the purpose of this setup! Keep in mind that this is a temporary solution. If you plan to continue using it, consider investing in a proper glass piece.

  • You'll also need a tin can lid or another small circular object that fits over the mouthpiece of your mason jar. The hole should be large enough to allow air to pass through but not so big that it falls through when placed on top of your jar.

  • Additionally, you'll require a pen or pencil that fits into the hole of your mason jar lid/bowl combination.

Make sure the mason jar can fit over the mouth of a plastic bottle comfortably, but not so snugly that it can't be removed easily.

2. Pint Glass Bong

The Pint Glass Bong is a clever fusion of a pint glass and an everyday bong. It outwardly resembles a regular pint glass – you can even fill it with beer if you'd like, but it secretly doubles as a bong! The concealed compartment is located on the underside of the handle. To access it, simply push down on the handle from inside the glass. In a creative and resourceful manner, we'll guide you on how to craft a bong using common household items.

This glassware piece goes by the name Pint Glass Bong. You can assemble it using a pint glass, some tinfoil, and some tape.

  1. Cut the bottom half off of the pint glass.
  2. Fold the tinfoil in fourths.
  3. Roll up the tinfoil.
  4. Tape the end of the tinfoil to secure it.
  5. Poke holes in the foil with a pin or needle (aim for about 25-30 small holes).
  6. Put your herb on top of the foil and pack it down lightly.
  7. Place your mouth over the neck of the bottle and pull from one side until you start to see smoke come through. Then try pulling from another side. Repeat this process until you've extracted as much smoke as possible from your herb.

It's literally just a pint glass with an opening cut out of it, and it's better than any other bong you've ever used. You can make them on-demand, so you never have to worry about them breaking. They're also cheap to make – since you already have a glass, that's all you need.

3. Straw Bong

Making a bong out of your kitchen utensils may seem hard, but if you follow the instructions below, you will be able to make a straw bong in under 5 minutes. Because there are many different ways to make a bong, we're going to show you how to make one that is cheap, easy, and can be made in under five minutes.

You will need:

  1. A straw (or paper towel tube)
  2. A plastic cup
  3. A rubber band
  4. A knife or scissors


  1. Take the straw and cut it to match the size of the end of the plastic cup.
  2. Wrap the rubber band around the bottom joint of the straw to secure it in place.
  3. Position the straw in the center of the plastic cup.
  4. Use a knife to create a hole in one side of the cup.
  5. Place your mouth over this hole and inhale. The vapor will travel up through the straw, getting filtered by your fingers before reaching your mouth.
  6. Enjoy!


If security has been a major concern and you've never tried making one, here's a crack at it. The easiest way to make one is to get creative. A bong can be made with 2 liter soda bottles, and there are tons of sites on the internet that can show you how to do this in just a few quick steps.
