The tools and processes for each of them can take quite a while to completely get the hang of.

Minecraft has a staggering number of blocks for you to use. Safe to say that some blocks are aesthetically better than others.

How To Make a Concrete Block

Items required to make a Concrete Block are:

  • 1x Dye
  • 4x Sand
  • 4x Gravel

Place the above items in the crafting table grid in whichever way you want to obtain concrete powder. Also, both sand and gravel are very common materials in Minecraft. You can find sand alongside waterbodies and you can find gravel just by digging a couple of blocks below the surface.
