28 Easy Minecraft Builds Perfect for Beginners

I earn commissions for purchases made through links in this post.

If you’re new to the Minecraft world, these easy Minecraft builds for beginners are a great place to start.

To make these builds even more beginner-friendly, I wanted to make sure that I included as many video tutorials as possible.

So, if you see a build that you like, check to see if I’ve also included the YouTube tutorial. While a lot of builders can build using just the picture as a guild, I know that others find it helpful to see a video.
