How to Make a Bamboo Mosaic in Minecraft

With the 1.20 Minecraft Update getting close (as of May 2023), we’re taking a look at some of the best blocks that will be added. While you can’t find these in the base game, you can play them using the experimental texture pack. Today, we’ll be taking a look at Bamboo Mosaics, one of the most beautiful blocks added to the game. So, let’s check out how to make a Bamboo Mosaic in Minecraft.

What Is a Bamboo Mosaic in Minecraft

All the Bamboo Mosaic items

Bamboo Mosaics are mostly decorative blocks in Minecraft. I’d put them in the same category as Bamboo Planks, even though they are quite different (i.e. you can’t use mosaics to make fences, shields, etc).

With that said, though, Bamboo Mosaics are somewhat difficult to make if you don’t know their crafting recipe.

How to Craft a Bamboo Mosaic in Minecraft

Bamboo Mosaic Recipe

To craft a Bamboo Mosaic in Minecraft, you’ll need to get a hold of some Bamboo Slabs, as you can see in the recipe above. To get these, you can turn Bamboo into blocks of Bamboo and then make 4 Planks (1 block of bamboo crafts 2 planks), which you can turn into slabs. 

You can also make a plank with 4 pieces of Bamboo. So, the only materials you really need are 12 pieces of Bamboo. To craft Bamboo Slabs, you’ll need 3 Bamboo Planks and a crafting table, as you can see above. 

Once you have at least 2 Bamboo Slabs, you’ll be able to make 1 Bamboo Mosaic.

How to Use a Bamboo Mosaic in Minecraft

Now that you’ve gotten a few Bamboo Mosaics in your inventory, it’s time to actually use them. As I said above, these are purely decorative, so you can just place them at the bottom of your base to have a cool-looking floor. You can also turn them into stairs and slabs.

The recipe to make Bamboo Mosaic Stairs can be seen above. It’s the exact same as with any regular plank, and it’ll give you 4 Stairs. If you ask me, these are undoubtedly the best-looking stairs in the game.

You can turn Bamboo Mosaic into slabs just like you turned the Bamboo Planks into Bamboo Slabs, as you can see in the crafting recipe above.


And that’s how simple it is to make a Bamboo Mosaic in Minecraft. With more and more blocks being announced every month, we can’t wait to share more of them with you. What’s your favorite addition to Minecraft that comes with the next update? Let us know over on the Minecraft Forum!
