Gather the necessary building materials. In order to craft an hopper, you'll need the following items five iron ore - Iron ore is grey rock with spots of orange/peach on it, which is typically found in caves or cliff faces. You will need at least an iron pickaxe in order to mine iron.
2 wood blocks Chop two blocks of literally any wood from the tree in Minecraft. This will result in eight wooden planks, which can be used to build one chest.
- A fuel source - You can use coal, that is extracted by mining the grey rock with black spots on it or using wood planks.
- A furnace - Furnaces can be made using eight cobblestone blocks which are placed on the edges of a craft table.
- A crafting table - Crafting tables are constructed by using a two-by-two grid made of wood planks in your inventory's "Crafting" section.
