If you’re looking for some fun Halloween ideas to try with your friends, then you’ve come to the right place because we’ve got two of the coolest and scariest ways to toke while you celebrate the holiday.

A simpler pumpkin bong

If you’ve tried the original pumpkin bong, then you already know it’s a whole lot of fun, but the process of making one can be a whole lot of work. That’s not the case with this one, which takes mere minutes to create at home.

What you’ll need:

  • 0.5-1 gram of flower
  • 1 small pumpkin
  • 1 drilling tool (long enough to reach at least halfway through your pumpkin)
  • 1 rolling paper
  • 1 filter tip
  • Grinder
  • Paper towels


  1. Wash the pumpkin thoroughly, and pat it dry with paper towels.

  2. Use a drilling tool to pierce a hole that goes straight into one side of the pumpkin. You’ll need this to be just wide enough to accommodate your joint size of choice.

  3. Clean any splattered pumpkin bits with paper towels and then move to the other side to continue the tunnel.

  4. Give the pumpkin one more wipe down and ensure the hole openings are as dry as possible.

  5. Pull the stem from the flower, grind it up, and then roll a joint or blunt with a filtered tip that fits into the drilled hole.

  6. Feed the joint into the hole gently.

  7. Place your lips over the remaining hole, light the joint, and then inhale.

How to roll a spider joint

The spider joint is not for the faint of heart because there are a lot of separately made parts that must be placed together carefully with grace and patience, and smoking it means multiple burning coals at once, but the creepy results are more than worth it if you’re up for a challenge.

What you’ll need:

  • 3-5 grams of flower
  • 5 king-sized rolling papers
  • 1 filter
  • Blunt glue (optional)
  • Grinder
  • Toothpick
  • Scissors


  1. Remove any stems and then grind the herb.

  2. Fill one paper to the max with ground herb and then roll it up with a filter.

  3. Twist off the open end and ensure this one is packed well with a few taps on a surface, because it’s about to become a body section.

  4. Roll the 4 remaining joints less than ½ as thick as the first, preferably big enough to be noticed while staying narrow enough to maintain bendability which is important for added effect.

  5. Use a toothpick to drill 4 holes at a time in each side of the joint until you have spacing for all of the legs.

  6. Feed the smaller leg rolls one by one into the hole.

  7. This is the perfect time to get out blunt glue if you have it to seal up any leaks that might remain. If not, then you can move on to the next step.

  8. Bend the legs right in the middle in a downward motion until they resemble spider legs.

  9. Light all 8 of the tips while gently hauling on the main body end where the filter is.

With any luck, your spider roll should be smoking in no time!
