Heads gif
Type of Block Decoration
Heads are decorative blocks added in Update 1.4 (the Pretty Scary Update). There are five different heads that can be obtained: Creeper, Human, Skeleton, Wither Skeleton, and Zombie. The Wither Skeleton head may be obtained in survival mode but the others are only available in the creative mode Inventory. These heads can be placed on your head. Also, you are able to recreate a specific Player's head with the command "/give (username) 397 1 3 {SkullOwner:(username)}"


The Wither Skeleton's head, a rare drop, can be used to create the Wither, a boss utility mob. Creating the wither is similar to creating a golem. You will need three wither skulls and four blocks of Soul Sand. After placing the Soul Sand in a T-shape, place the three wither skulls on the T-shape to spawn the Wither.


  • Heads can be placed in eight different directions, but cannot face upwards or downwards.
  • Heads cannot be pushed by pistons.
  • Heads will turn back to items when Water or Lava touch them.
  • Heads can be placed on the side of blocks, but will not face the direction of the player, but fowards.
  • Using MC edit Player skin can reference a minecraft account
  • Heads cannot be stacked except with the use of third party programs.
  • Heads can also be used as helmets.
