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.
You need three bricks total to create one Pot, so create as many are required to make all the Pots you need.
Step 3: Create the Pot
Now that you have all the bricks you need, add three of them to your Crafting Table in the following positions:
Grab your Pot out of the box on the right and you will have completed your task!
How to Use a Pot
All you need to use a Pot is to place it wherever you'd like and then add whichever plant you'd like inside of it! The Flower Pot can hold all sorts of things in it, such as flowers, bamboo, saplings, cactus, mushrooms, fungi, and more! Here's an example of how some of them will look:
If you'd like to remove something from the Pot, just target the plant and use the interact button to take it out!
