While this material may not be as strong as wood, it does make for some sleek and stylish designs that are sure to impress any friends or cannabis consumers you might happen across. Plus, unlike other materials such as acrylic or plastic, Glass doesn't often require special care in order to keep it looking new and shiny.
    All you need for this Bong is a Glass Bottle, a proper drill bit and a glass downstem & bowl.
  3. DIY Plastic Bottle Bong: One of our cheapest versions on our list of DIY bong options is using a plastic bottle instead of something more traditional like glass or wood. Unlike most other materials used in making bongs which tend to leak over time if not cared for correctly, plastic bottles are virtually indestructible and come in all sorts of interesting colors and patterns, depending on which brand you choose.
    All you need is some imagination and you can have yourself one beautiful (and functional) DIY bong in no time at all!
  4. DIY Fruit Bong: If you don't like the options listed above, this might be the one option for you where you will surely enjoy your most favorite fruit in another way. When it comes to DIY Fruit Bongs you can be as creative as you can imagine, you can use any fruit you want, it just has to have a strong consistency where you will need to create a hole for the smoking and the glass downstem & bowl. Next thing is, enjoy your smoking session & maybe some of your most favorite fruit at the end of it as well!

Tips and Tricks for Making the Perfect DIY Bong

Make sure your DIY Bong materials are clean and ready to use.

One of the most important factors when making a DIY bong is ensuring that your materials are clean and ready to use. This includes using a CLEAN pipe, water filter, and bubbler. Dirty pipes will result in poor airflow and harsh smoking experiences. If you have any doubts about the condition of your materials, err on the side of caution and avoid using them altogether.

Another key factor in ensuring a great cannabis vaping experience is experimenting with different types of water filtration methods. Different substances require different filtration levels to avoid ruining your hardware or exposing yourself to harmful toxins. For example, using pre-packaged water filters can be a great option for beginners because they offer preset levels of CO2 reduction, caffeine cancellation, and other elements. However, if you're looking to experiment with different filtration methods, be sure to read up on each one before using them.

Finally, it's important to keep in mind the importance of airflow when vaping. Poor airflow can lead to harsh smoking experiences and even cause your hardware to malfunction.
