We will start with the “white banner”, so here’s what you’re going to need:-

  • 6 Wool
  • 1 stick.

You ofcourse will need the crafting table before you can craft any items in Minecraft. So make sure you’ve the items listed above, and the crafting table.

Position your player just in front of the crafting table.

Now you need to access the crafting table. Here’s how to do so:-

  • PC:- Right click on the crafting table.
  • PS3:- Press the “square” button.
  • Xbox:- Press the “X” button.

I suppose those are the three most popular gaming platforms in the market these days aren’t they? So I’m sure they cover your device as well.

Anyway once you’ve access to the crafting table, you need to add the required items to the crafting table.

Place the items listed above in the 3X3 grid, that’s where the required items for any craft are placed.

So here’s what you need to craft a black thing banner:-

  • 1 banner.

Now the one important aspect of this craft is that, the items need to be placed exactly in the order I’m illustrating in the following screenshot:-

So, you place the enchanted apple in the first column, the banner in the second, and only then you’ll be able to craft the Black thing banner. (In other words, sequence matters!)

The black thing banner to make a custom shield as well just like the other banners in this piece.

Again make sure that the placement of the items is exactly as illustrated below. If the sequence doesn’t match, you won’t get the desired product.

So place 1 dye in the second row, first column, and then another die right next to it in the third row. In the second column, place the banner in the second row second column, and then the dye in the third row. (Just follow the screenshot).
