How to make a homemade pipe with Starburst

If this sounds like the perfect project for you, then keep on scrolling to learn exactly how to make a Starburst (or any other soft candy) weed pipe for less than one dollar and in under 10 minutes.

You will need:

  • 1 full-sized pack of Starburst (any flavor)
  • 1 screwdriver
  • 1 screen (optional)


  1. Begin by unwrapping 14 pieces of Starburst candies pieces.

  2. Next, take a screwdriver and slowly feed each piece onto the metal rod just like you would prepare a skewer for dinner. Technically, you can make your homemade weed pipe any size that you’d like, but experience shows that 7 pieces make a good base for your first chamber.

  3. Once all the pieces have been pierced, apply a small amount of pressure to fuse them all together. Starburst candies are quite sticky, so you shouldn’t need water or any other messy materials to make that happen. When they stick together, it should be relatively easy to pull the entire row of candy off the screwdriver in one piece.

  4. The next step is making an elbow joint, that will connect the weed pipe base to the bowl. To do this, take one piece of Starburst and piece it just like you did with the other, but then remove it and poke an additional hole in one of the smaller edges that meets the one in the middle, try not to go past it.

  5. Press the new elbow onto the rest of the weed pipe base until it sits firmly in place.

  6. The next step is the candy bowl, which consists of two pieces of Starburst that are fused together. Use the screwdriver to poke a hole through the center, then tilt it on an angle to gently shape the top opening into the perfect bowl shape.

  7. Install the candy bowl by lining up the holes and gently applying a small amount of pressure.

  8. You are almost done, and all that’s left is sealing off the long chamber in your weed pipe so that you can draw from the device. Though some might prefer to leave it alone and use the addition as a carb, the easiest way is to seal it off with one final unaltered Starburst candy.

  9. Shape and install a fine mesh screen with pressure and your homemade weed pipe is ready to go.
