In Minecraft, these are the materials you can use to craft a diamond chestplate:



How to craft a Diamond Chestplate in Survival Mode

1. Open the Crafting Menu

First, open your crafting table so that you have the 3x3 crafting grid that looks like this:

*

2. Add Items to make a Diamond Chestplate

In the crafting menu, you should see a crafting area that is made up of a 3x3 crafting grid. To make a diamond chestplate, place 8 diamonds in the 3x3 crafting grid.

When making a diamond chestplate, it is important that the diamonds are placed in the exact pattern as the image below. There should be 2 diamonds in the first row at either sides (the middle box should be left empty), 3 diamonds in the second row, and 3 diamonds in the third row. This is the Minecraft crafting recipe for a diamond chestplate.

Now that you have filled the crafting area with the correct pattern, the diamond chestplate will appear in the box to the right.

3. Move the Diamond Chestplate to Inventory

Once you have crafted a diamond chestplate, you need to move the new item to your inventory.

Congratulations, you have made a diamond chestplate in Minecraft!
