How to make a Pot in Minecraft

Pots are a great way to spruce up your next home build with a nice floral or plant decoration. While Flower Pots don't serve a lot of practical purpose, they can certainly bring some visual appeal to any place you want a pop of color! So, we're going to be taking you step-by-step in this tutorial on how to make a Pot in Minecraft.

How to make a Flower Pot

To make a Pot, you will need to find some clay, heat it up in a furnace, then use the bricks to create the Pot! We'll walk you through it step-by-step below.

Step 1: Find Clay

Clay is a natural resource that can be found on the map at the bottom of rivers and lakes. It spawns in a kind of diamond shaped pattern that looks like this:

Swamps are a particularly good biome to find clay spawns, so keep an eye out for those! Clay is a light gray-ish colored block. Here's an example of what it looks like when seen underwater:

Harvesting it with the shovel will be the fastest, but you don't have to use one. Each block should give you a total of 4 clay balls, which yield one brick each.

Step 2: Create the Bricks

Now that we have our clay, we will need a Furnace to heat them up in You can use any fuel, this includes: planks, logs, charcoal, or coal. Place your fuel in the furnace as well as your Clay Balls to receive the brick.
