How to Use a Pen to Make a Pipe


Sometimes it can be fun to take an object that is intended for one use and make something completely different out of it to use for something else. With just a few simple modifications you can change a pen into a pipe. It is a wonderfully inexpensive way to get a pipe in a pinch.

Things You'll Need

  • Plastic pen
  • Socket
  • Aluminum foil
  • Duct tape
  • Remove the contents of the pen. The shaft of the pen will serve as the main piece of your pipe. Unscrew or pop off the cap at the top of the pen. Remove all ink cartridges, springs or other items found inside. The pen shaft should now be completely hollow.

  • Fold a small piece of foil around the bottom half of the socket several times. The foil will serve as an annex between the pen shaft and the socket where the tobacco will rest. The foil should extend about 1/2 inch off the socket.

  • Secure the foil annex and socket to the shaft of the pen using duct tape. The trick here is to rip thin, elongated pieces of tape from the duct tape roll and wrap it around the place where the foil meets the pen shaft and where the foil meets the socket. Continue to wrap thin pieces of duct tape until the socket is securely fastened to the pen.
