Everything you need to craft Lead in Minecraft

A lead is a simple item used to leash animals in Minecraft. Once you’ve leashed them, you can lead them anywhere you want, and they’ll be dragged with you. They are primarily used in the early part of the game to lead cows or sheep to your farm. In the education edition of Minecraft, Lead can be used to make balloons.

Here are the items you’ll need to craft Lead:

  • 4x String
  • 1x Slimeball
  • Crafting Table

How to craft Lead in Minecraft

#1 Acquiring string for the Lead


String can be easily obtained in Minecraft by breaking cobwebs using a sword, piston, or flowing water. String can also be obtained on killing mobs like spiders, cave spiders, striders, and cats. Placing a cobweb in the crafting table will also give you string.

#2 Getting Slimeball


Slimeballs are dropped by the size 1 slimes, i.e., the smallest slime in the game drop slimeball on death. One slime block will also give 9 slimeballs when placed in a crafting table.

Slimeball can also be obtained when a baby panda sneezes!

#3 Crafting Lead


Once you acquire all the items needed to craft a lead, toss them up on the crafting table according to the recipe given above, and you’ll get a brand new lead. This lead can then be used to leash your horse and tie it up to a fence.

What is the give command to get Lead in Minecraft?

The command to give yourself Lead is: /give @p lead 1
