How to Make Glass in Minecraft

Glass comes in a few different forms in Minecraft, so we will teach you how to make each one.

How to Make Glass (Blocks)

If you’re looking to make an entire glass block, all you need to do is take sand, which can be acquired near any large body of water. It’s easiest to mine with a shovel, so pull one out and start collecting as much sand as possible.

Then put the sand into a furnace and give it a heat source. Once the sand cooks, it will become a glass block.

Please note that if you break a glass block, it will be destroyed forever, so be careful when placing them.

How to Make Glass Panes

If you’re trying to make a window or something that resembles one, you’ll want to make glass panes instead. These are not full blocks and can be utilized best with the designer of your group.

Take your glass blocks to a crafting table. You want the bottom two rows filled with glass blocks (six total), and this will produce sixteen glass panes.
