Packed mud was a block added recently to Minecraft in the 1.19 update. Packed mud hasn’t been in Minecraft long, but it’s already proving to be one of the most useful blocks in the game, especially for builders! These packed mud blocks are some of the easiest things to craft in Minecraft, but many players still aren’t sure how to go about crafting them. If you’ve been wondering how to craft packed mud blocks in Minecraft, you’re in luck! Keep reading to learn how to craft and use packed mud blocks!

How to Craft Packed Mud Blocks in Minecraft

These blocks aren’t crafted like packed ice in Minecraft, as many would think. Packed mud blocks actually only take two items to be crafted, and only one of them is mud! All you need to craft a packed mud block in Minecraft is one wheat and one mud block. Wheat can be easily farmed or found in villages, and mud blocks can be easily crafted with water bottles and dirt, or found in mangrove swamp biomes.

To craft a packed mud block with wheat and mud blocks, you’ll need a crafting table. Once you’re in the crafting table, set the wheat anywhere in the grid. Then, take the mud block from your inventory and put it directly next to the wheat in the grid. Once they’re next to each other in the crafting table, you should have your packed mud block ready to go! Packed mud blocks are a lot easier to craft than many people think, but not many people are able to correctly guess the odd crafting recipe.

How to use Minecraft Packed Mud Blocks

These blocks are especially valuable to builders in Minecraft! Packed mud blocks are great by themselves if you want to add texture to any structure, but are also used to craft other building blocks. You can use packed mud to craft mud bricks, which are beautiful deep brown bricks that add rustic charm to any Minecraft building. Mud bricks are popular because they have the same polished, smooth design as stone bricks, but feature a deep, dark chocolate color instead of grey.

How To Make Infinite Mud In Minecraft

Finding a way to make infinite mud sounds complicated, but it’s actually one of the easiest things you can do in the game. Mud has a lot more uses than many people think, and it can prove to be an invaluable resource to many players in Minecraft. Making packed mud blocks is only one of the numerous uses of mud blocks! All you need to make infinite mud are water bottles and dirt. That’s it! Glass bottles are incredibly easy to make using glass blocks, and water and dirt are in abundance in Minecraft. If you’d like to know the full process of creating infinite mud, follow these easy steps:

  • Craft as many glass bottles out of glass blocks as you can.
    • Three glass blocks make three glass bottles, so you should have no problems with crafting an abundance of bottles!
  • Fill your glass bottles with water.
  • Dig up a whole bunch of dirt from your surrounding environment.
  • Place your dirt blocks on the ground, but don’t allow them to become grass blocks by waiting too long.
    • Dirt blocks quickly become grass blocks if you place them on grass. Try to place your dirt blocks on sand or stone, so grass doesn’t spread to them as easily!
  • Once your dirt blocks have been placed, use your water bottles to click on them. Each dirt block that has been clicked on with the water bottle will turn into a mud block!
  • Congratulations! Since water and dirt can be found in almost every biome in Minecraft, you now have an infinite supply of mud blocks!
