Collect the necessary materials

Before going into the details of the procedure on how to make a mirror on Minecraft , I think you may be interested in knowing how to collect the necessary materials. Clearly, these indications are valid for the Survival mode of the title of Mojang, since in the Creative mode all the necessary elements are already available in the inventory.

How to make a mirror on Minecraft

Well, to make a mirror on Minecraft you need the following resources: a frame , a white banner , 1 unit of blue dye , 1 unit of black dye and 1 unit of brown dye .

The frame is constructed by joining any 2 wooden planks (e.g. birch) with 2 cords . The wooden planks can be “generated” by the trunks of the trees, which are found in forests Minecraft. The string element , on the other hand, can be obtained simply by exploring the game world, often defeating spiders and cave spiders .

As for the white banner , to create it just join a stick to 6 wool units . The stick is obtained by joining 2 wooden boards of any type, while the wool can be obtained by joining 4 cords . As mentioned above, the latter are mainly obtained by defeating spiders .

The blue dye is obtained by combining 1 unit of lapis lazuli and 1 unit of bone meal . The lapis lazuli can be obtained by the respective blocks rough, which can be extracted with a pickaxe stone or better. Usually, this material is found inside caves .

If you don’t have a stone pickaxe , know that you can create it by combining 2 sticks with 3 units of crushed stone . About the latter, I recommend you consult my guide on how to make a Cobblestone Generator , or a generator of blocks of crushed stone. As for bone meal , the latter can be obtained using 1 unit of bone . The Bone can be found by defeating the skeletons within the game world.

By switching to the black dye , you can get it through 1 unit of ink pouch . The latter is achieved by defeating the squid inside Minecraft. As for the brown dye , it is created through 1 unit of cocoa beans . The latter are obtained by breaking the relevant blocks present in the forests .

In short, as you can see, making a mirror in Minecraft’s Survival mode is not that difficult. In any case, if you are interested, I suggest you consult the Minesearch website , which allows you to have detailed instructions on the materials necessary to obtain various elements.

All you have to do to use it is to type the name of the object you need in the search bar at the top and select the most relevant result . In this way, the right combination to create the object will appear on the screen .

After explaining how to collect the necessary materials, I would say that you are ready to proceed with the action and create your mirror. I remind you, however, that Minecraft does not allow you to mirror your character by default, therefore it is only an aesthetic element.

The first thing you need to do is place a frame on the ground. The latter will help you whenever you need to build a mirror.

After that, take a white banner and 1 unit of blue dye and interact with the frame . Then place the banner in the upper block on the left, while the dye goes in the block on the right. Also remember to select the gradient icon towards the top .

Then take the new banner and place it again in the block on the top left. Now, put 1 unit of black dye into the block to the right of the banner and select the gradient icon surrounding the banner .

If you want to make it a little more “vintage”, take the banner , place it again in the dedicated block and place 1 unit of brown dye in the block next to it , always selecting the gradient icon that surrounds the object .

Mod to make a mirror on Minecraft

The community of Minecraft gamers is very large and therefore a mod that can create mirrors that are particularly beautiful to look at must not be missing: it is called MrCrayFish’s Furniture Mod and now I will explain right away how to install it.

Assuming that the mod only works on the Java version of the Mojang title, I recommend using version 1.12.2 of the game, since in the others it may not be possible to create the mirror.

To download the mod, therefore connected to the 9minecraft website , scroll down the page and press the Download from Server 1 button , present under the writing relating to the version of Minecraft in your possession. Then press the blue DOWNLOAD button that appears on the screen.

In this way, a file called MrCrayfishs-Furniture-Mod- [version] .jar will be downloaded , which you must move / copy to the Minecraft mod folder. On Windows , the path to follow is C: Users [username] AppDataRoaming.minecraftmods , while on macOS it is ~ / Library / Application Support / minecraft / mods .

Mod Minecraft folder

In some cases, for the mod to work properly, it may be necessary to install the Forge profile . To proceed, just go to the official Forge website and press the Installer item . If you are looking for Forge for a “dated” version of Minecraft (just like 1.12.2), you must press the Show all Version button .

When the download is complete, open the forge- [version] -installer.jar file obtained, select the Install Client item and press OK and you’re done: in this way, you have correctly installed the Forge profile.

Now, to start using the mod, just select the Forge profile using the down arrow icon on the left, next to the PLAY button , on the main screen of the Minecraft Launcher . Once in the game, grab a workbench and place it on the ground.

After that, take 4 iron blocks , 4 iron ingots and a white glass panel . Then interact with the workbench and place the iron ingots on the side blocks, the glass panel on the block in the center and the iron blocks in the remaining spaces left free.

Then take the mirror , put it in the inventory and place it where you want.
