How to Make a Shulker Box in Minecraft PC


Minecraft offers a plethora of crafting options, allowing players to create tools, weapons, and various storage solutions. One such storage solution is the Shulker Box, which provides ample space for organizing your items. In this article, we will guide you through the process of making a Shulker Box in Minecraft PC.

Step 1: Gather the Required Materials

Before you can create a Shulker Box, you need to collect the following materials:

  • 2 Shulker Shells: Shulker Shells are rare drops obtained by defeating Shulkers in End Cities.
  • 1 Chest: You can craft a Chest using 8 Wooden Planks.
  • 1 Dye of your choice: This will determine the color of the Shulker Box.

Step 2: Craft a Shulker Box

Once you have gathered the required materials, follow these steps to craft a Shulker Box:

  1. Open the Crafting Table: Right-click on a placed Crafting Table to open the crafting grid.
  2. Place the Materials: In the 3x3 crafting grid, place 2 Shulker Shells in the top row, the Chest in the middle row, and the Dye of your choice in the bottom row.
  3. Retrieve the Shulker Box: Once you correctly place all the materials, the Shulker Box will appear in the result box. Drag it into your inventory to collect it.

Using the Shulker Box

Now that you have a Shulker Box, here are a few tips on how to utilize it effectively:

Storage Space

A Shulker Box provides 27 slots of storage, just like a Chest. However, unlike Chests, Shulker Boxes have the advantage of being portable, allowing you to carry them in your inventory. This makes them perfect for storing items while on the go.

Stacking and Renaming

Similar to other containers in Minecraft, you can stack Shulker Boxes to conserve inventory space. Additionally, you can rename a Shulker Box using an Anvil, making it easier to organize your storage system.


If you need to move your Shulker Boxes from one location to another, you can use a Minecart with a Chest or a Shulker Box. Place the Shulker Box in a Minecart and then break the Minecart to retrieve it at your desired destination.


Congratulations! You now know how to make a Shulker Box in Minecraft PC. Utilize this storage solution to stay organized and carry your items conveniently. Happy crafting!
