Minecraft: How To Make Concrete Easily?

In this guide, we will show you how to make Concrete blocks using concrete powder in Minecraft.

Concrete in Minecraft is a block that you can craft but for that you need Concrete Powder. When Concrete Powder will come in contact with water, it will turn into a solid Concrete Block. You can choose a dye from 16 color options for crafting the same. Now, if you are wondering how to do it, the process is simple. In this guide on how to make Concrete in Minecraft, we will show the easy steps.

How to Craft Concrete in Minecraft?


To make this sturdy material, you need to pick a dye first. The color options you have are as follows:

  • Red
  • Orange
  • Green
  • Yellow
  • Lime
  • Cyan
  • Light blue
  • Blue
  • Magenta
  • Purple
  • Pink
  • Brown
  • Black
  • Grey

So, choose your favorite color and move to the next step.


Craft Concrete Powder in Minecraft

In the Crafting Table, you have to put the following materials:

  • 4 Gravel Blocks
  • 4 Sand Blocks
  • 1 Color Dye


That’s pretty much it. You can get sand from islands or a desert. It’s a common material so you won’t have much trouble getting it. Gravel can be taken from Gravel Mountains which are also not hard to locate. Players can get a high amount of Gravel from these Biomes. And regarding the dyes, you don’t need all 16. You can make the powder with only one dye too. The best way to get more dyes, though, is by getting your hands on flowers as well as bones by killing skeletons. Additionally, you can combine colors to make newer ones like white + black makes gray dye.

You can place all the materials in the format shown below. With this recipe, you will get 8 Concrete Powder pieces.



How to Create Concrete From Concrete Powder

Now, the next and final step is to turn Concrete Powder to Concrete. How to do it? Simply bring it in contact with water. Doing this will harden it and turn it into Concrete. You can do this by putting it next to flowing water or you can also pour some water on it from a water bucket. This simple step will change it into a slab of solid Concrete in Minecraft.

Remember that water from a water bottle or rain won’t make the Concrete hard. Plus, you need to mine it with a pickaxe. Also, after you craft the powder, you will not be able to change its color. Hence, if you want White concrete powder or Gray concrete powder, make sure to use those dyes.
