Never fear, there are several innovative ways to make DIY weed pipes. Here are a few you can try.

How to Make DIY Weed Pipes


Apples make great DIY weed pipes. Here’s how it’s done.

  1. Find an apple that is sturdy enough to stand up to heat and smoke.
  2. Use a pencil or a similarly shaped instrument to carve into the apple starting at the stem. Don’t go all the way through the apple, stop about three-quarters through.
  3. Make a second hole in the side of the apple. This horizontal hole should meet the vertical hole at the bottom.
  4. Blow through to ensure the holes connect. This will also serve to blow out any chunks remaining in the path.
  5. Make a third hole in the other side of the apple. This hole should be shallow. It will serve as a rush. You will cover it as you inhale.
  6. Take a knife or another carving instrument to make the hole on top into a bowl shape. This is where you will place your weed.
  7. Inhale through the first hole you made in the side of the apple and enjoy.

You can also make DIY weed pipes out of bell peppers, cucumbers, bananas, peppers, and other fruits and vegetables.


Pens make ideal one-hitters. Here’s how you can make pens into DIY weed pipes.

  1. Start with a pen with a metal cap that is easy to disassemble.
  2. Take it apart so you are left with an empty tube.
  3. Place the nib on the opposite end of the pen.
  4. Fill the pen with cannabis and inhale from the back side.

A Toilet Paper Roll and Aluminum Foil

A toilet paper roll and aluminum foil are ideal materials for creating steam roller DIY pipes. Here are the steps you must take to convert your home products into smoking accessories.

  1. Use a pen, screwdriver, or similarly shaped instrument to make a hole in the toilet paper roll about a quarter down from one end.
  2. Take your aluminum foil and shape it into a bowl shape. Use a pin to poke tiny holes in it.
  3. Place the aluminum foil in the tube and seal it with sellotape or blue tack.
  4. Pack your bowl and smoke.

You can substitute toilet paper rolls with paper towel rolls, Pringles containers, and other cylindrical cardboard items.

Starburst Candy

You can make DIY weed pipes out of Starburst and other squishy candies. The colorful candy makes an attractive pipe. It also adds to the aroma and flavor of the weed.

Here’s how it’s done.

  1. Unwrap several candies and squish them together. Keep going until they are as long as you would like your pipe to be.
  2. Stack more candies on one end of the pipe to serve as your bowl. The previous stack will be squished together vertically while the bowl stack will be stacked horizontally.
  3. Take a pencil and make a hole in your horizontal candy stack that goes partway into your vertical stack.
  4. Use the same pencil to make a hole in the other end of the vertical stack to meet the hole in the horizontal stack.
  5. Pack your bowl and get high.

Soda Can

Soda cans are often used as DIY weed pipes. The technique for making a soda can pipe is as follows.

  1. Use a sharp object like a key or knife to puncture a hole in the can. Make the hole as clean as possible.
  2. Dent the can so it serves as a bowl.
  3. Fill the weed in the bowl part. Use the part of the can you drink from as the inhalation hole.
  4. Enjoy!

Ice Block Pipe

This is a unique way to make DIY weed pipes. It’s not easy to do, but it provides a cool clean smoke similar to a bong hit. The process is as follows:

  1. Find a rectangular container that’s about the size of a pipe. Fill it with water and wait for it to freeze.
  2. When the water solidifies, take it out of the freezer. Use a knife to carve a hole in the side. It can be any size you like. It will act as the bowl.
  3. Carve another hole in through the end and smoke out.

Bamboo Pipe

Bamboo can be used to create eco-friendly DIY weed pipes. Of course, you will need to have bamboo in your house to get started. But if you have it on hand, you will get an excellent pipe out of the deal.

  1. Start with bamboo that’s about 2” wide and cut it. One end should be covered by the wood membrane. The other end should be cleanly cut.
  2. Drill a hole in the membrane end of the stick and use the wood to make a bowl. The clean end will serve as your mouthpiece.
  3. Fill your bowl and smoke.

That’s right. French bread can make terrific DIY weed pipes. And they are easy to design.

  2. Drill a slightly smaller hole on the other end to serve as the bowl.
  3. Smoke out like the Frenchmen do.
