Happy Halloweed! In this article, we will teach you the step-by-step process to create your very own pumpkin bong! By the time you are done with these 9 easy steps, you will be bragging about your hand carved pumpkin bong to all of your friends!
Note: There are a few different methods to making a pumpkin bong. In this method, you will use your own waterpipe as the water chamber to keep your smoke clean. In other methods, people use the pumpkin as the water chamber.
Let’s get started!
- Dab tool or other sharp object
- Bong (waterpipe)
- Permanent marker
Prep: Clean and empty your bong and remove the slide (female piece) before proceeding with the first step of the pumpkin bong process.
Firmly grasp your bong and carefully flip it upside down on top of the pumpkin, so that the mouthpiece is covering the stem. Using your permanent marker, carefully trace around the mouthpiece leaving a black circle on the top of the pumpkin. (Tip: Be sure to avoid getting any permanent marker on your glass. It may not come off!)
Step 2: Trace (Bottom)
After you have traced a circle around the mouthpiece, flip over the pumpkin (it should now be upside-down) and place the base of the bong on top of the pumpkin. Again, using your permanent marker carefully trace a circle around the base of the bong onto the pumpkin.
Step 3: Cut (Bottom)
Using your knife, carefully carve out the large circle that you just traced around the base of the bong on the pumpkin. Be sure to cut all the way through the pumpkin, so that you can easily remove the center-piece.
Step 4: Remove the guts
Now that you have removed the large center-piece, it is time to take out the guts! Using your spoon, scrape the inside of the pumpkin, so that all of the guts and seeds detach from the walls. Once everyhthing has been scraped off, remove all of the excess guts and seeds, so that the pumkin is clean and hollow.
Step 5: Cut (Top)
After you have cleaned the inside of the pumpkin, flip it over so that it is standing upright. Using your knife, carefully cut along the line around the stem of the pumpkin. Be sure to cut all the way through the pumpkin. so that you can cleanly remove the stem.
Step 6: Align the bowl
Now that you have the two holes cut into the pumpkin, it is time to slide the pumpkin over the bong. To do this, pick up the pumpkin (larger hole facing down) and carefully slide both holes of the pumpkin over the mouthpiece of the bong until the pumpkin is sitting firmly on the table. Once the pumkin is over the bong, it is time to align the hole for the bowl piece. To do this, you will have to reach into the pumpkin (from the bottom) and and find where the hole is for the male/female pieces. Once you have found that spot on the inside of the pumpkin, try and visually match that point on the outside of the pumpkin. Next, carefully press your dab tool (or other sharp object) through the outside of the pumpkin and into the hole of the bong, so that your hole in the pumpkin will align when you cut it out. This hole will be where you carve out the piece for the bowl. (Tip: It may take a few tries to align the hole, so please be patient and very careful when you press the tool through the pumpkin. This part is tricky!)
Step 7: Cut hole for the bowl
Now that you have aligned the hole for the bowl piece, take your knife and carefully cut out a circle in the pumpkin (large enough to fit the bowl piece through) where you marked the pumpkin with your dab tool in the previous step. Make sure your hole is large enough that you will easily be able to insert and remove the bowl piece.
Step 8: Insert bowl into the slide
Now that you have cut the final hole into the pumpkin, it is time to prep your pumpkin bong for smoking! Be sure to fill up your bong with water, insert your slide into the pipe, pack your bowl with some grade-A cannabis, and insert your bowl piece into the female. Your pumpkin bong is ready to smoke!
Step 9: Smoke the Pumpkin Bong!
Grab your lighter, meet up with some friends and have a Happy Halloweed toking with your buds! You may not have a traditional jack-o-lantern, but you will definitely be the center of attention at any Halloween party you attend!
