Step 1:

 how to make a plastic bottle bong

Pick any ordinary plastic bottle. It doesn’t matter if there’s a cap or not as it won't be of any use. On the other hand, the size of the bottle plays an important role as it will determine the size of the hits. The bigger the size, the better the hits are.

Fill one-fourth of the bottle with water. It will work as the filter for your smoke.

Step 2:

Now you have to cut out the carb hole just below the neck of the bottle. You will place your finger on it to inhale the ecstatic smoke. So, make it big enough for you to cover it with your finger. 

Use any sharp poking equipment like a pen, pencil, knife, etc.

Another hole is to be created. The difference is that it has to be bigger in size. The hole will be carved just above the waterline of the bottle. Poke the hole just above where your water is filled in the bottle. 

The size of the hole should be big enough for you to insert the highlighter pen. The highlighter will work as your downstem.

Step 4:

Take apart your highlighter. Remove its inky nib at the front and the ink fill holder at the end. Both ends should be open for the smoke to pass inside the pipe. 

Hold the highlighter upside down and cover its backside with aluminium/tin foil. Carefully poke holes in foil depression at the end of the highlighter. The smoke will go through these tiny holes.

Step 5:

How to Make an Apple Bong: Step-by-Step Guide

 How to Make an Apple Bong

Now let’s get on with the instructions to make an apple bong. It’s quite easy and the end product would be worth every sweat you shed.

Step 1

Your first and most important step would be to remove the apple stem, right from its base. 

Step 2

Now, the apple is your bowl. The next step would be to create a mouthpiece and car hole. With the help of a screwdriver, drive a hole in the centre of the apple. 

Step 3

You’re almost done. After following the above instruction, the next one would be to create an air passage for the smoke. Poke holes on the top of the apple with the help of a toothpick. These small holes should cross the hole that you created in the middle, the mouthpiece. 

Step 4

After getting the airflow passage right, check whether all holes are deep enough to pass air. Try by inhaling in them.

Step 5

Lastly, place the weed on top of the apple. Put your mouth over the mouthpiece, get your finger ready to work over the carb hole, and light it up!

Enjoy your homemade apple bong now. Smoking through them can be a very unique experience. 

How to Make a Snow Bong: Step-by-Step Guide

How to Make a Snow Bong

Snow bongs are very rare and most probably you haven’t had smoked from such bong. So, get ready for this chilly ride!

Step 1

The first step would be important yet easy to follow. Get your bowl out and pile snow on it. 

Step 2

Insert the above-mentioned dowel in the snowed bowl and pack it properly by snow. Remember not to drive the dowel all the way to the bottom. Keep it at least 2 inches above the snowed base. There should be snow in between the base and dowel. 

Step 3

After inserting the dowel properly, you can show off your sculpting skills, if you have any. 

Step 4

It's time to remove the dowel. Use the skewer to create a downstem hole in the snow chamber.

Step 5

Lastly, create a bowl by carving a bit of the snow. Pack it, put in the weed, and light it up. 

Snow bongs can easily last up to solid 4-5 hit sessions. Enjoy your icy cool homemade bong.
