How to Make Shears in Minecraft


Shears are an essential tool in Minecraft that help you collect items in the game, including seagrass, leaves, pumpkins, mushrooms, beehives, and sheep’s wool. They are one of the best tools to collect sheep’s wool as they give up to 3 blocks of sheep wool.

Shears are simple to make in Minecraft. You only need two iron ingots to convert them into shears. If you do not have iron ingots, you will have to prepare them first. Prepare the shears by diagonally placing the ingots on the crafting table. 

Let’s tell you how to make shears in Minecraft quickly.


  • Ingots/Iron Ore

Collecting the Material

If you have ingots in your inventory, you can pick them up. However, in case you do not have ingots, prepare them using Iron Ores.

Iron ores are one of the most common ores in Minecraft. They can be found anywhere in the game, including ravines and caves. You may want to try your luck anywhere you see stones as it could be iron ore. They are also sometimes found in mountains and hillsides. Mine downwards to collect the iron ores.


Now that you have the iron ores, the first step is to convert them into ingots.

Making ingots from iron ores requires the use of a furnace. Use a furnace from the inventory and power it with any fuel of choice. Add the iron ore to the top of the furnace and fuel to the bottom. Use two of these to make shears in Minecraft.

When you have the ingots prepared from iron ores, it is time to create the shears. 

Lay down your crafting table.

Place each of the iron bricks/ ingots diagonally in the 3×3 box. 

Your shear will appear in the box on the right side.
