How to Get Concrete in Minecraft

Concrete doesn’t occur naturally, so you must make it on your own. First, craft some Concrete Powder, then use it on a water block to create a Concrete block. Then, equip a pickaxe and mine the block to get your Concrete.

To make multiple Concrete blocks, stack Concrete Powder blocks on top of one another. When you mine the Concrete with your pickaxe, the Concrete Power blocks will fall, and the bottom one will become Concrete. Keep mining the bottom block to collect as much Concrete as you need.

Required Materials for Concrete

You need the following items to craft Concrete Power:

  • 4 Gravel
  • 4 Sand
  • 1 Dye (any color).

To turn Concrete Power into Concrete, all you need is a water source and a pickaxe to mine it with.

Red Sand cannot be used to make Concrete Powder.

To craft Concrete Powder, combine 4 Sand4 Gravel, and 1 Dye in a Crafting Table. It doesn’t matter how you arrange the materials.

Uses for Concrete in Minecraft

Use Concrete to build sturdy structures. Concrete is harder than stone, but it has a lower blast resistance, so your concrete structures can’t withstand an explosion. Concrete Power can also be used to make bridges over water.
