Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Materials

alright get your supplys then you can get started hers what you'll be needing

brown, black, and silver testors paint or what ever color you want your pipe to be

a pack of 99 cent pipes you'll only need one pipe but you can give one to every one in your group and let them decorate them selves

and a razor to cut up the top

Step 2: Getting Started

this is prob. the hardest step(because this is such an easy instructable)any wat poke your razor into the hole and slowly cut out wards untill you get to the last circle(dont cut althe way to the out side to make it look more realistic) if its kind of rough like mine just go over it again.

Step 3: Paint It

do a base coat of brown, add some random black marks and paint the pot of the pipe(i dont know what its relly called so im calling it a pot because it looks like one) black to make it look likthe you acualy light stuff on fire in it(please dont try it be cause it will melt the plastic wich isnt good:()and finallt paint the part where you put you mouth on silver(or gold)

Step 4: Enjoy!(dont Skip This Step Read It!)

okay well you wont get much satisfatcion( haha im listening to that song reight now) if you want puffs of smoke but dont want to melt it, use flour or baby powder(baby powder works betterjust dont inhale it! yucky!)

    or you could just buy a real one and make the costume all the better, plus if the party sucks you have a real working pipe. do the math

    Neat. The 'pot' is called the bowl. The long part is the stem. Craft stores sell little LED 'candles' that you could butcher and build into your pipe for a real 'lit' look!
