We’re going to be building on ourselves is really cool. Campfire we’re going camping, cuz, it’s summertime right now and what better time to go camping that in the summer, okay, beautiful outside – and we got our awesome campfire over here – get a little tent going on over here and our little longs to kind of chill on.
As we sit around the campfire singing campfire songs, yeah, that’s what we do anyway! So let’s go ahead and I’m going to show you guys how to build the actual campfire itself and kind of decorated a little bit as well. Now you I’ve seen these in the past like a million times or it’s just a bunch of like armor stands in the ground. I think then you light it, but now armor stands burn. So if you did this after a little while not going to be much left but netherrack, I put that out.
All the armor stands are now friggin gone, so yeah yeah that doesn’t work anymore. So, let’s go ahead and let’s, let’s make a real campfire look at that with stones around it and the fire actually going. So what we’re going to be needing today is a few random items, we’re going to be meeting some stuff, so this is going to be easiest to build in creative. If you want to build this in survival and maybe a little more challenging but nonetheless is still possible, so we’re going to be needing eight skeleton skull.
So if you don’t have skeletons close, you can simply get leather helmets and dye them gray. Light gray, dark gray, looks way too dark. So eight skeleton, skulls or leather helmets, eight armor stands: you can use either a single piston or you can use a Pistons. You can do it with one person. It’s not a problem and you’re going to need a few redstone torches. You really again, you only need one. I grabbed eight for no reason, and I grabbed one piece of netherrack is all we need.
We need a flint and steel and you need twenty-four pieces of snow you’ll see why in just a second now this stuff down here is just a decorative items that we use to make it look more like a campsite than just just a fire. Hey peg, you want to enjoy the fire or you want to be cooked. You like that cool, so we got our campsite, and now we have friends that came to visit us and they’re going to build their campsite over here next to ours probably got pumpkins over there.
We can make some pumpkin pie, so what we need to do is you need to make a hole too deep and a 3×3 pattern lettuce and like this and then remove the center one here, we’re going to remove that just a one top block and you’re going To replace that top block with a piece of netherrack, pretty straightforward, nothing, fancy and then on all the sides here, you’re going to place down three stack of three pieces of snow, one, two, three one, two three one, two three: I want to make it three one: Two three one, two, three one, two, three one, two: three: the reason why we place three pieces of snow is it’s the perfect height for the armorstand to stand on and only the very tippy top to set to pop out of the ground.
Otherwise, the arms themselves. Stick out of the ground, or none of it at all six out of the ground, and it just doesn’t look right so found out that three pieces of snow are the best option. Now the three pieces of snow, the rocks are, the rocks are going to be our skeleton skulls or you can use helmets if you like, it’s absolutely now. I found out now I’ve been trying to do this for a while, and I I failed at it – and this is how I found out the snow trick was through another youtuber by the name of Biggs 87 ex, and he is the one who came up with Via the snow idea, so I give him props for that.
I did not come up with that. It was his idea on how to do that and it works out. It works out pretty well, so you guys wan na try on his blog. You guys go right on ahead and do that, so we’re going to do it first before we do anything else, we’re going to block off just the one on top this one here this one here this one here and this one here. The reason why we do that is so the armor stands in the corners don’t shift around.
We want them to be in a specific location. Now we’re going to put these at an angle, get a point: let’s be standing on top of the netherrack here and I’ll. Be pointing towards this corner here and place one armor stand. You know probably want to place it right there. There there place there we go, so I have to place it up high to point to the top of the grass order to place it because it wasn’t wanting to place on top of the snow the stacks.
So I’m going to do the same thing over here. Like that over here and over here now, we’re going to want to remove without accidentally clicking on an armored stand, so you don’t remove it. We’re going to move this block this block this block, this block, this block, this block, this block and this block dang it. Okay, all right so now you’re going to replace these with pistons those blocks with pistons temporarily, we’ll put those blocks back in just a minute, so we’re going to put pistons facing the armorstands, though, like that come on dang it like that, okay, so behind each one Of these you’re going to place down, one redstone torch place, the redstone torch and it’s going to shove.
The armorstand over in this direction do not break the redstone torch first, because what happens is sometimes, if you do that see it pulls the armor stand back. It glitches out, even though it’s not a sticky piston, it still glitches up. So you push to put the redstone torch down and then you break the armor, the two piston first and then the redstone torch alright so place that down breaks up the piston and then the redstone torch.
Now it’s shoved all the way up in the corner like this, that’s exactly what we want. You really only need one piston you can put down the one piston break it place it break, it, blazer break it and that’s fine. If that’s all you want to do in survival, it’s probably easier that way only because you don’t have to make so much material, okay, let’s go ahead, and do that one and really technically only one redstone, redstone torch or a lever yeah the lever would work too.
Okay, now we’re going to replace these with dirt. Now I have grass block because we’re in creative, so I’m just going to go ahead and replace some of the grass cloth, but it here in survival, you’ll put down dirt and it’ll grow right back over now. We want to remove these blocks here this one, this one, this one and this one always being very, very careful not to accidentally hit the armor step because they will move and that will suck armorstand their armor stand.
Their armor stand there and armor stand there. Now, as you fly up above, no those ones don’t need to be pushed in. These ones are fine. It makes it this nice little circle of armor. Stand now mind you. If you have a world that has a lot of armor stands: you’re not going to be able to do this because armor stands are entities and I think you can max out on armor stands by like 20 or 25. I can’t remember what the total number is, but there is a maximum amount.
It’s not a lot. Yes, they’re all holding hands kumbaya around the campfire, so okay, so now we’re going to go ahead and we’re going to cover these up with whatever dirt you want to use now over. Here we use puzzle and that’s what I want to do again over here, just because it looks a little more natural, then just grasp it you’re not going to really put the fire in grass. That would be really strange.
So I’m going to put this up. One block two blocks like this and the third block and I’m going to yeah. Now you can make grasped glass paths and we’ll do that in just a second I’m going to put one of one piston upside down right there and I’m going to keep going around the block. One two like that: oops go one like right. There put one right! There another one there another one there and these are all pointing down our number so now they’re all pointing down.
Now I’m going to go ahead and I’m going to use. My lemony is my podzol, which is information which has my chest. Oh it’s over here somewhere. Okay, so now I’m going to grab my I’m going to grab all my material actually boom boom boom boom boom boom and I’m going to grab my pod Zul and I’m going to place that on the bottom side of all these Pistons number, these are regular fishin’s, Not sticky pistons right, because when you put the puzzle down, it’s not going to transfer to this like if people are regular dirt down, you can also use coarse dirt.
Coarse dirt works just as well, and it probably looks just as nice. Quite honestly. So that’s also an idea if you guys want to use coarse dirt instead of puzzle, because puzzle sometimes is hard to find and you’ll need a. What do you call it? A silk touch pickaxe in order to pick it up, yeah you can’t just going. I mean unless you’re uncreated, once again, it’s not a big deal, but if you’re not in creative you’re, going to need a silk touch, pickaxe go get it.
Okay, there’s just tons of dirt. If you pick it up, so I’m going to place a block on each one of these four ends right here and I’m going to go ahead and I’m going to put redstone torches all the way around and that should push them all down. I’r going to remove these block up here and then I’m going to put whatever block I want to down here. It doesn’t really matter we’ll put just put dirt off right now, and this is just basically to shove.
It down even further you’ll see yeah. So we’re going to put again we’ll put the four four or five torches down right here, shoving down all the pistons, and now we can remove those rock desert, removing the redstone. How we can remove this right here and you’re going to notice the armorstands are sticking up out of the top even like a little circle. It does look kind of cool, doesn’t it so now we can remove all this stuff being very, very, very careful not to hit those armorstands.
Then you have to do this all over again and that would freaking suck. So now we can grab our skeleton skulls and we’re going to right-click or left click right on top of these armor stands. Trial is like a steep head. It looks funny because you have a different color hair or like an Ender Dragon, because these look like stones. That’s why we’re using see looking glitches out a little bit, so you have a different color variation on it, but it is what it is it does.
It does look kind of cool so now we’re going to grab our foot and steel and we’re going to simply light the netherrack in the center, which you won’t see anymore. You’re so mean I don’t care, but otherwise for your cool. So now we can being careful again do not hit the dirt either this dirt. That is, surrounding these armorstand. If you hit those, you will not be able to get it back in unless you do the same steps that we just did, I’m going to grab a little bit of a coarse dirt and we’re going to do the same for something.
This is just a decorator. Just to make your grout look a little more natural and not so boring of just grass. You know so we’re going to grab we’re going to also grab our I’m using spruce because I think screws matches the setting very very well feels like very campfire s and it in the edge of G I’m going to put place down one to kind of on The edge right there and then one two: this is one block away from the three blocks right there, one two and then again with the one two now you can sit down on logs, which looks really freaking cool to me.
Now we can go back and go back to our course dirt and we can add a little bit more coarse dirt in here and then I also added some buttons. Some stone buttons, I’m use the flesh, jobs and look like rocks, got a little rocks lying around there around the ground at different places. I wish we had something for sticks, so I’m going to also add we’re going to have some trees, even though we have some trees over here trees around your campfire, I think, with while you’re camping, look freaking amazing go ahead and put one in there that it Was I was a sad tree very sad? Okay, there we go that’s a better looking tree, we’re going to remove some of these leaves today with frikken job.
What I’m going to do, I’m going to add a little more decoration, I’m going to hit a little bit of the bow meal on the ground right here, just to give it a little more a little more decoration and it looks a little more natural. You can also take some vines and put them on a few of the logs here and there just to make them look a little old degrees behind make it look a little more mossy like like we have here in the Pacific Northwest.
We got a little bit of moss in places, so it does look a little more natural and that’s it. You’ve got yourself a nice little campfire there. Now the tent is a whole other scenario. I’ll show you guys that maybe on another day, but for now you got yourself a nice little campfire you can. I said that 10, like sounds great, so now you got yourself a nice little campfire.
