How to craft a bed in Minecraft?
To craft a bed in the game you will need the following resources:
3 units of Wool
3 units of Wooden planks
Now, bring up the crafting table and add the three units of wool in the middle row. Add the 3 planks of wood to the bottom-most row of the 3×3 crafting table and you will get a bed as the result. Next, move the bed to the inventory and you will be able to use it. Simply open the inventory and place the bed wherever you want.
However, this is easier said than done. As mentioned, you will need 3 wooden planks to make a bed in Minecraft. If you haven’t noticed, that’s not something you get directly in the game. So, let’s learn a bit more about that.

How to get Wool?
Wool is the next main ingredient necessary to make a bed in Minecraft. Luckily, this is a resource that is pretty easy to come by. However, if you want to do it efficiently, I would suggest investing in a good pair of shears.
To craft shears, you will need to open your Survival Inventory Crafting Table. Place two iron ingots in the top left and bottom right slots. Doing this will craft a pair of shears you can use.
Now, equip the shears onto your character and go look for some sheep. Use the shears on the animals and you will get Wool as a drop. The other method is to kill these animals, but, it reduces the chances of getting wool as a drop.
