How To Make A Homemade Vaporizer Pen

Digging down for answers on how to make a homemade vaporizer pen? Worry not as we have got you covered.

A homemade vaporizer is a cheaper option than buying one.

As people consume cannabis and other medicinal drugs, they find newer and safer ways to consume such herbs. Vape is considered a healthy alternative to traditional smokers trying to quit and to others a smoke-free way of consuming cannabis.

While you’re likely to find many vaporizers in the marking with different price ranges, you can find an interactive and cheaper way to make it. Not only will it be more convenient if you want to vape on impulse, but it will be an impressive skill you can show off to friends.

We have listed four simple steps you can follow to make your very own vape pen with homemade items.

Here’s your to-do list for how to make a homemade vaporizer pen;


Remove the lid from the glass jar and make two tiny holes on the tin lid. One is going to be for a screw and the other for a shot glass. Before you do so, mark the measurement for the screw and the shot glass, so there is less chance of human error.

Thus, half of the shot glass should be able to fit the hole when it is inserted. When you’re marking the measurements, use the glass’s bottom as your guide and adjust the mark outwards so you have space to insert the glass halfway.

Using a flat screwdriver, make a hole on the cap by hitting the screwdriver with a heavyweight until it creates a small hole. The measurements of the holes are key so that there is less leakage when using your vape.


Make a stand with the hanger. Unwind it and take one end of the coil to wrap around the jar cap, leaving about 1/8th of an inch of space between the car and wire. After coiling it twice, take out the cap and bend the wire. It will form a horizontal line that protrudes from the circle.

Measure 3-4 inches of the wire. This will be your stand’s leg. Bend the wire parallel to your circle, and from there, another circle serves as the stand’s base. On the opposite side of the first leg, bend the wire towards your upper circle.

By measuring another, 3-4 inches make your stand’s second leg and connect it to the upper circle.


You’re nearly there! Now that you’ve made the structure take the nuts off the screw and insert the screw into the smaller hole in your cap. Replace the nuts on both ends so that 1/3 of the screw is inside the lid and the other is outside of the cap.

Connect the tube to the screw on the outside cap. Place the cap upside down to the upper circle, so your pipe is at the bottom. Insert the shot glass in its hole. Place your choice of herbs in the shot glass, place the candle underneath the shot glass, and your vape is ready!

You can use household items to easily make your vaporizer.

Make sure the glass you’re choosing and the wire are complementary to each other’s weights because otherwise, it can break and your efforts wasted. To make it more secure, you can use a block of wood to nail your stand.

Enjoy vaping with your homemade vape pen!
