How to make a banner in Minecraft

In Minecraft, banners can be placed on the ground or a wall. Banners are used to make customized shields. Place the banner on the shield, in the crafting grid, side-by-side in the 3×3 grid, with the banner on the left side and the shield in the middle.

DID YOU KNOW: If you’re on Minecraft combat rework snapshot 8c, when you attach a banner to your shield, it will upgrade it by adding up ten absorptions (instead of the usual five), and it’ll also give it a bigger knockback resistance.

Minecraft Banner Patterns

The good news are that there are really a lot of Minecraft banner patterns to choose from the simple brickwork backgrounds to the startling skull and crossbones designs. If you want to, you can also match the two designs. Minecraft designs and patterns are really not very difficult to create, you just need to spread out your dyes around the banner in different quantities and positions. Of course, there are some more complex banner patterns. 

Here they are:

  • Brickwork pattern: Use a combination of brick block and banner
  • Colorful brickwork pattern: Use a combination of brick block, dye, and banner
  • Fancy border: Use a combination of dye, vine, and banner
  • Creeper face: Use a combination of Creeper head and banner (dye optional)
  • Skull and crossbones: Use a combination of Wither head and banner
  • Flower: Use a combination of oxeye daisy and banner
  • Mojang logo: Use a combination of an enchanted golden apple and banner

Note: you can blend and pair any of these designs by just layering over the top of your banner with a new design. This means that you can mix the orders, the colors, and the logos.

To help you with your task, here are some extra tips you can use in the process of adding patterns to your banner:

  • You can divide your banner into halves horizontally and vertically simply by placing a pattern of 6 dyes either arranged to the left, right, top, or bottom of the grid
  • Place a line of 3 dyes horizontally or vertically to make a single line stripe.
  • You can make plain borders by placing eight pieces of dye around the edges:
  • If you want to make squares in each corner, place a single piece of dye
  • Chevron: This is a triangle found at either the top or bottom, and it is made with three pieces of dye
  • A comparable pattern of 3 dyes will make a “row of teeth” either at the top or bottom
  • A single piece of dye in the middle will give a small round spot
  • Using four pieces of dye will get you a “lozenge” shape
