Now, creating a tile in Minecraft isn't complicated at all, but its process involves following several steps. The first thing is to arm yourself with a good shovel and a fuel furnace, this together with patience and a desire to explore is all you will need. Now you just need to pay attention to the following steps:

Get clay in Minecraft

First of all, the first thing you should do is make a shovel of any material, although the most recommended is usually the stone. Armed with your tool, now is the time to look for a body of water, preferably a river or lake.

Once found, keep in mind that clay is usually underwater and on the banks, so its extraction is sometimes a bit difficult. Once there, look for a block of a texture other than sand or earth, gray in color.

This is the clay you were looking for and at this point all that remains is to extract it with the shovel. You are already one step closer to tile making in Minecraft, so collect as many as you can. With this you will not get the complete block you just pulled out but 4 pieces of clay, however, you will need to convert these pieces back into one block.

Doing this is very simple, on a work table or in your inventory, place your four pieces of clay, you will need to harden in an oven and you will get your block again; If you don't have an oven, you can do it yourself.  If you are already experienced in the game, an additional recommendation would be to use a shovel with a silk touch spell and then you will get the block directly.

Make terracotta in Minecraft

Terracotta was formerly called hardened clay, something similar to sandstone and, like it, you can find it in some biomes. However, since finding the table biome is not that fast and can be quite tricky, it is better to do it yourself.

For this you will only need the clay blocks you previously extracted and reassembled, a furnace and fuel. The most common is usually coal, but you can also use lava buckets or wooden objects, although the latter are not as efficient.

Put your clay blocks in the oven and add fuel, this will harden the clay and you will get your homemade terracotta. You could use it this way, but the ultimate goal is to make tiles in Minecraft, don't forget.

Create tiles in Minecraft

The moment of truth has come, the last two steps to get your tiles with which to make beautiful designs in the game.


First of all, you should take your ready-made terracotta and give it the color of your choice. You can choose from white, light blue, gray, brown, orange, yellow, green, light gray, magenta, lime green, cyan, red, pink, purple, blue and black.

To do this, you just need to take 8 terracotta blocks and place them on the grid of the crafting table forming a hollow square. In the center you need to place the dye you have chosen and voila, now you can get your own colored terracotta.

Second and last, you just have to go through the glazing process, in this way you have really reached the point of making tiles in Minecraft.

Now you just have to take your already dyed terracotta and put it back in the oven, with this you will get a unique and exclusive design of the color you used. They can be used in groups of four forming a pattern, but now it remains only to let your imagination run wild.

Another decorative material that you can get in the game is glass, which you can use on the windows, this material can be made by yourself. And you can even paint it any color you want.
