Particular blocks in Minecraft can make your next big project truly shine. If you’re wondering how to make concrete in Minecraft, or find out more about its recipe, we’ve got you covered. 

Unlike most blocks in the game, Minecraft’s concrete features a whopping 16 dye color options. As long as you have the required dyes, you’ll be able to customize your buildings with any color you want. Not only does concrete give the player numerous color customization options, but it is also rather durable. 

While it won’t beat the toughness of any brick-made structures, it is a decent step up from stone blocks. Whether you’re looking to add a little color to your next building project, or just want something easy to build, Minecraft concrete allows you to do just that.

Fortunately, these are incredibly easy to acquire and can be found at the start of every new world. Here’s what you need:

  • Four pieces of sand.
  • Four pieces of gravel.
  • One dye (any color of your choosing).

Once you’ve gathered those materials, place them in the order shown in the picture above. If done correctly, you should now have eight pieces of concrete powder in your inventory!

Gravel and sand are both relatively easy to find, too. Head to beaches and sandy biomes for sand; and rivers, oceans, and underground mines for gravel.

You’ll need to find some water to make concrete.

As soon as you’ve acquired some concrete powder, it’s time to turn it into concrete. To do this, simply find a natural body of water on the map and submerge the blocks.

It’s important to note that water can not be sourced from rain, bottles, or cauldrons. In fact, water taken from these sources will have no effect on concrete powder. As a result, it’s often best to find a nearby river or ocean you can place the blocks into. 


Now that you know how to make concrete powder and concrete in Minecraft, you’ll be able to add even more style to your builds! For more guides and updates, such as how to breed turtles, how to make a lead, and how to get Netherite, make sure you follow us here on Dexerto.
