Honeycomb Guide

Honeycomb can be used to create a variety of different items in Minecraft, including a Beehive, Candle, Honeycomb Block, and various Waxed Copper Blocks, Slabs, Stairs!

If you want to farm Honeycomb, you will first need to find a wild Bee Nest. Bring along some Shears, and use it on the hive to extract the Honeycomb. If you want to avoid getting attacked by the bees, make sure to place a campfire underneath the nest before you extract the comb!

Now that you have your Honeycomb, it’s time to craft with it. Here’s how you can craft and utilize the material in a variety of different recipes.

Beehive Recipe

If you want to farm Honeycomb, you’re going to need to craft some Beehives. This can be done with three Honeycomb and six different wood planks of any type! Make sure wherever you place it has flowers around so that bees can grab pollen and bring it back to the Beehive to make Honey and Honeycomb.

If you want to liven up your home or next crafting project, you can create Honeycomb Blocks that will add a splash of color to any design! You will need four Honeycomb stacked in a square to craft the block. This is mostly for decoration, but can also be placed under a note block to create a flute sound!

Candle Recipe

You can light up the night with a few well-placed candles. While they don’t throw off as much light as a torch, they have a nice design look and can make things feel a bit more inviting. Candles can also be used to make things more spooky as well, so design accordingly! To make a Candle, you will just need one Honeycomb and String.

If you want to keep your Copper Blocks, Stairs, or Slabs in a specific state of oxidation then you will need to wax them! Copper changes color gradually, but you can stop it by applying a single piece of Honeycomb to it and create a waxed version of the block.
