How to Make Mud Blocks in Minecraft

Making mud in Minecraft requires three main things: dirt, water and a glass bottle. While getting some dirt is usually simple, water and glass bottles are slightly harder to come by, depending on where you spawn. You can craft glass bottles using three glass in a “V” shape on your crafting table, which you can use to pick up water from any source. Yes, this also includes a cauldron full of water if you have one nearby.

With your water bottle in hand, use it on the dirt block to turn it into mud! You can do this multiple times, but you’ll need more water for each block you convert. This also only works on any dirt type, including coarse and rooted, but not on grass.
