Required Materials to Make a Bed
You can make a bed by using a block of wool and wooden planks whereas their quantity is mentioned in the table below.
How to Make a Wool
You can make wool by placing 4 strings on the crafting table whereas you need to kill the spider mob to get these strings. You won’t be able to find these spiders easily as they spawn only in the dark areas inside the caves, tunnels. But if you try your luck and still you won’t be able to find them then you should wait for the night and during that time they will spawn naturally on the ground as well.
Now killing a spider will give you around 1-2 strings but that would not be enough for the recipe because you need 3 blocks of wool and 1 can be made by placing 4 strings on the crafting table. This will make it a lengthy process and you need to find and kill lots of spiders for this purpose.
How to Make Wooden Planks
To make wooden planks, find any tree nearby and chop it either by using your hand or with an axe which reduces the chopping time and is highly recommended. Chopping a tree will give you a wooden log that you need to place on the crafting table which will give you 4 wooden planks.
How to Make a Bed
Now on the top 3 slots, you need to place 3 blocks of wool and in the middle 3 slots, you need to palace the 3 wooden planks on the crafting table in the same way as shown in the image to make a bed.
How to Change the Color of the Bed
The basic color of the bed is white but if you want to change its color then you need the dye of that color to apply to it. For example, if you want a red-colored bed then you need to place the red dye and a bed on the crafting table as shown in the image below.
After making the bed, place it on the ground and right-click on it to sleep on it but keep that in mind that this will only work during the night time.
The two main advantages of using a bed in Minecraft are that you can save yourself from the damage caused by the other mobs appearing at night. The second is that you can use a bed to save your progress and use it as a spawn point whenever you die.
