Before you can build a bed, you’ll need to collect some sheep’s wool:

  1. Craft Scissors. Arrange 2 iron ingots diagonally on the crafting grid.

  2. Find some sheep. Sheep can be found in most biomes, usually in clearings with few trees.

  3. Pick up 3 wool. Equip your scissors and interact with a sheep to shear it. How to do it depends on your platform:

    Sheep shed 1-3 wool with each shearing. After that, you have to wait for them to graze for a while before you can collect more wool. You can also get wool by killing sheep, but using Scissors allows you to have an endless supply of wool from the same sheep.

  • How do I make a bunk bed in Minecraft?

    A bunk bed is not a normal item you make on your workbench, but you can put it together with a little creativity. One way is to make a U-shape four blocks wide and two blocks high, and then put a bed in the middle. Then destroy the blocks under the bed, which will leave it hanging in the air. You can then place another bed under that one to finish the bunk bed.
