How to Make a Banner in Minecraft? ; How To Make Banner In Minecraft? How to Make a Streamer in Minecraft ? A streamer in Minecraft; it is a long block specially made to show a pattern or design – the perfect accessory to decorate the interior. You can find naturally occurring banners in Minecraft, but with a few complex options beyond the simple white flower banners at Woodland Mansions or villager banners at looter outposts, the results are limited and unimpressive.
How to Make a Banner in Minecraft?
Step 1: Create or find a pennant
Get yourself a pennant first! You can usually loot the banner by attacking a banner, or by attacking a villager in your hand and then inspecting what fell. Otherwise, you can easily create your own pennant with six different wool color segments and a stick.
Step 2: Whiten the streamer if needed
You don't need to whiten a pennant before you start, but it's an option. This gives you a white, blank page to start with any paint you might want to add, and when you swag the pennant it gets rid of any existing patterns. However, you will only need bleach, which can be created with a lab table (available with the Education Edition or direct commands) where you combine three water and three sodium hypochlorites. Then you can create the streamer with the newly created bleach to wipe it clean.
Otherwise, we recommend starting with just white wool when crafting, as this will give the best results.
Step 3: Add dyes to the pennant
If you don't have any paints yet, now is the time to start collecting, buying or manufacturing them. There are a total of 16 paints you can use, so pick the colors you have in mind and get to work. Bonemeal, ink sacs, flowers, and plants are common ingredients you can put in your craft grid to get a variety of dyes.
Once you have enough paint for your project, it's time to craft it, too. The key is correct positioning: Where you put your pennant and paints on the 3×3 render grid will determine the pattern that appears on your streamer.
Most of the layouts are largely intuitive, especially if you want to create an overhead inspired design. Spraying a single paint on the corner of the craft grid, with the pennant in the middle, will give a square color in that section. A dye in the center will create a large spot. Surrounding the pennant with dyes will create a border of that color. You can make a gradient by positioning the paints in the upper right and left corners of the grid and the lower two middle sections. Crosses and Xs are similarly made by positioning dyes in appropriate patterns. A paint triangle can form chevrons above or below the pennant, or split the pennant diagonally by color depending on placement – etc.
You can also create custom pennant designs by adding additional elements besides paint color for more complex results. These options include:
- Brick: Adding a brick will create a brick pattern. Add a single paint and a brick to create a colorful brick pattern.
- Asthma: A vine, a dye, and crafting your streamer will create a wavy border in your preferred color.
- Creeper head: This gives a Creeper-like face in the color of your choice on the streamer.
- Faded skeleton skull: Use this to create a skull and crossbones design.
- Oxeye daisy: This provides an indefinite flower shape.
- Enchanted golden apple: Use this to get the Mojang logo.
Remember, you can produce dyes on a streamer multiple times! This allows you to complete and overlay designs to achieve just the look you want. If you want to experiment first so you don't waste any material, Minecraft has a tool for just that. People have created everything from real world flags to House crests in Game of Thrones, so you can find lots of good advice for more complex plans.
If you have access to a loom you can create even more pennant patterns with a wide variety of logos, but this is not necessary to get the look you want.
Step 4: Place your header
With your prepared paints and design, you are ready to place your pennant wherever you want. Streamers have no collision mechanics and are either placed on the ground (like a sign) or against a wall. Lava cannot harm them, and objects, including running water, will pass directly through them when necessary.
Step 5: Edit multiple pennants if needed
Sometimes, a single pennant just isn't enough to get exactly the look you want, especially if you want to spell something out or create a large billboard. For this you will need to create multiple streamers and place them in the same position using color patterns to create a larger design.
If you want to create a streamer with the same colors, simply put a blank streamer and your painted streamer in the crafting grid. This allows you to copy the design without having to regroup all the materials.
