I warn you that the banners you will manufacture will all be in one solid color.

If you want to know how to get colored banners, I invite you to continue reading in the next chapter.

How to color banners on Minecraft

Create colorful banner

If you want to get gods colorful banners on Minecraft, what you need to do is change the color of the wool. In fact, the wool you get from sheep shearing is mostly white and only on some occasions you could get it black, on shades of gray or, in other rare cases, brown or even pink.

In this regard, you can color the wool, using the sixteen dyes available on Minecraft: red, green, Violet, cyan, Grey, light grey, pink, lime, yellow, light blue, magenta, Orange, blue, Brown, black is White.

You can obtain these dyes by inserting, in a furnace, the corresponding ingredients that you can collect in the world of Minecraft: most of these are obtainable from plants, except white and black, which are obtained respectively from Bones and from Ink bag, which is released by the octopuses.

When you have the dye, all you have to do is put 1 unit of Lana with 1 unit of Dye in a workbench. The result will be 1 unit of Colored Wool, which you can use to make a banner. At this point, following the same procedure that I have already shown you in previous chapter, you will be able to make a colored banner, always in a solid color.

How to make custom banners on Minecraft

Apply a texture to the banner

On Minecraft you can create banners by customizing the plot. In fact, as I already told you in the first chapters of this guide of mine, the banners are precisely one-color. Although you can color them, they will still be solid.

Thanks to a specific tool, the Frame, it is possible to change the texture of the banner, for example by applying specific lines or geometric shapes. To make this tool, you need to put it on a workbench 2 units of wooden boards is 2 units of string. While the first material is readily available by dismantling gods Logs of Wood in a workbench, you can get the twinemainly by defeating the spiders.

After making the Frame, interact on it, to view its interface. There are three slots on the left side: one is intended to accommodate it Standard, one is for the Dye, while the other for Figures. In this chapter, I will not explain how to use this last slot, as I will postpone the explanation in next chapter.

Before you start editing the storyline, you need to make sure you have the useful items for the first two slots: therefore, you must have already made one Standard it’s a Dye. For the first object, I refer you to what I have already illustrated in the first chapter; for what concern Dyeinstead, I told you about it in detail in chapter dedicated to coloring banners.

After entering it Standard in the first slot and the Dye in the second, at the center of the interface of the Frame you will be shown all plots that you can apply. The banner you will get will be one consisting of the color of the base of the original banner, with the texture of the same color as the color.

How to decorate banners on Minecraft

Apply a decoration to the banner

To the banners it is also possible to apply decorations that depict specific figures. Those available on Minecraft are as follows: a flower, one skull head, one creeper head, the Mojang logo it’s a globe. The latter, however, is only available in Creative mode. In addition to these, for the Minecraft Bedrock Edition, you can create the texture of bricks you hate creepers.

To apply the figures I told you about in the previous paragraphs, you must be in possession of the object Figure for Banner: it is precisely a parchment that contains the logo design to be imprinted on the banner. This is accomplished in a workbench by putting it together 1 unit of Paper and the object related to the figure itself.

For example, if you want to create one Figure for Banner with a Flower, what you need to do is join the card to 1 unit of Margherita. If you want to create the Mojang logoinstead, you will need to get one Enchanted Golden Apple. You can get, instead, the figures depicting the heads defeating the corresponding creatures.

When you have the Figure for Banner, open the interface of Frame and place it in the slot dedicated to it, also adding it Standard and the Dye. You won’t have to do anything else: in the right slot you can collect the new banner with the figure applied.

I advise you that on Minecraft real banners can be created completely decorated with elements not directly present in the video game. This operation is possible by processing the banner several times with different textures and colors until the desired effect is achieved.
