Concrete is a smooth block that was released in Minecraft 1.12 update. It can be dyed into sixteen different colors and is mostly used for building purposes.
To craft concrete in Minecraft, you will need some sand, gravel, and a piece of dye color of your choice.
What You Need to Craft Concrete
- 4x Sand
- 4x Gravel
- 1x Dye Item (In this article, we will use White Dye)
How to Make a Concrete in Minecraft
Step 1: Collect 4x Sand
Sand is a common block in Minecraft that generate naturally in many biomes like Lakes, Rivers, Deserts, and Beaches.
You can also find sand underwater in Deep Ocean biomes.
If you find a Desert Temple, dig down and look for its treasure room. Chests in this room will have a 59% chance to contain 1-8x Sand.
Alternatively, you can trade 1x Emerald with the wandering trader for 8x Sand.
Step 2: Collect 4x Gravel
Gravel is also a common block in Minecraft but a little bit rarer than sand. They generate near Rivers, Beaches, Windswept Gravelly Hills, Ocean, and Stone Shores biome.
You can also find Gravel in the Nether dimension in two ways. Bartering with the piglins or finding it around the Nether.
Bartering may be the easy way to go since you can trade 1x Gold Ingot for 8-16x Gravel.
Step 3: Collect 1x Dye
There are sixteen different dyes in Minecraft, but we will use White Dye for this article. You can obtain 1x White Dye by using 1x Bone Meal or 1x Lily of the Valley.
Step 4: Craft Concrete Powder
When you have all the materials, right-click a Crafting Table and put all of them in to craft 8x White Concrete Powder (or other colors of Concrete Powder if you’re not using White Dye).
Step 5: Finish off Crafting a Concrete
When you have the Concrete Powder, you can turn it into Concrete by placing it next to a water source block. Then you can break it with a pickaxe.
