Building Minecraft hearts

Building ridiculously big things in Minecraft is rather easy. Here’s everything you need to do to make a heart in Minecraft.

The materials

For the sake of simplicity, we’ll be building our heart in the creative mode so that we don’t have to spend time scavenging for supplies. However, if you want to, you can choose to create any structure in survival mode. 

We’ll be using black concrete blocks for the border, red concrete blocks for the inside and a white concrete block for adding a little bit of flair for this build.

Building the outline

Once you have all you need, you’re going to have to start putting an outline for the heart. It’s good to have a pixelated heart’s image ready for reference. However, it isn’t that difficult.

First up, set one black concrete block on the ground and, using that as the centre, line up five more blocks diagonally on each side. You can choose to go with more blocks if you want a bigger heart.

Once you’re done with the diagonals, add three blocks at the top of each diagonal and then go two blocks in a diagonal opposite to the direction of the base diagonal. Once you’re there, set a centre block that should line up with the first block you set. Once your outline is ready, remove any supporting blocks. 

Fill up the heart

Now that we have an outline ready, the hard part’s done. Now just fill the outline up with red concrete blocks. Feel free to use different blocks in texture or colour if you’d like to mix and match things.

Once you’ve filled the outline up, the structure will start resembling a heart closely. However, there are still some finishing touches left. 

Finishing up

Now go around the boundary and clear any other support blocks you might’ve used. Once you’re done, pick out a block in the top left corner and replace it with a white concrete block or any other block if you’d like to experiment with different textures of colours.
