How To Make Glass In Minecraft: A Step-by-Step Guide
Written by: NutellaOwl

Glass is a useful thing to have in Minecraft. This beautiful block allows light through but keeps monsters at bay. Mobs, including Endermen, can't see your character if you use glass. 
The game originally only included the basic unpainted glass block, but due to its popularity and significant usefulness, many variants of the original glass block were quickly released.


This included transparent glass windows, as well as colored stained-glass blocks.
You may utilize your glass to make a safe greenhouse for night animals or turn it into stained glass items and potion bottles.


The first step to making glass is to gather sand from a beach, then we will place a block of sand in the top cell of the furnace. Finally, you can add your chosen energy source, such as coal, wood, or anything else you want. Wait for the arrow in the center to fill up. Now that a glass block has been made, simply drag it into your inventory.




Glass recipe in Minecraft


Step 1 - Get sand

You can find sand in four-block-deep layers throughout the Overworld's various biomes. It may be found in virtually every biome, including forests, plains, tundra, and swamps. Beaches are made of mostly sand, with some gravel, dirt, and clay patches beneath the water, so finding sand should be very easy if you see water around your location.

Step 2 - Cook the sand in a furnace

First, create a furnace and then put the sand in the highest furnace slot, and fill the bottom slot with some sort of fuel. Wood, coal, lava buckets, and virtually anything constructed of wood are all viable alternatives for furnace fuel.

Step 3 - Optional: Dye your glass a different color

You can change the color of a glass block by adding dye to it inside of your crafting table as shown in the image below. This will allow you to have more freedom when decorating your environment. This is a great way to add some personalization to your game. You can also use this method to change the color of other blocks, such as glass or wool.
