Golems tend to just wander around. To keep them nearby you can either lead them around with a lead, tether them to a post with a lead or even block them in with a fence.

* Be careful about putting them next to each other as the Iron Golem can hit anything nearby and will kill your Snow Golems with 1 hit. It is better to keep them away from each other.

Crafting

  • 4 Snowballs = 1 Block of Snow
  • 9 Iron Ingots = 1 Iron Block

Step 2: Snow Golem

Facts about Snow Golems

  • Create by stacking 2 Snow Blocks with 1 Pumpkin on top
  • Will drop a few Snowballs when destroyed
  • Leaves a trail of snow wherever it walks which can then be harvested for more snowballs
  • Attacks enemies by throwing snowballs but this does not do any damage to them (except for Blazes but Snow Golems don't do well in the Nether), they mostly distract the monsters so you can attack and kill them
  • Will be damaged by water, rain quickly kills it
  • Take damage in hot biomes such as Deserts, Savannah, Jungles and Mesas
  • Won't attack Creepers or hostile Wolves

Step 3: Iron Golem

Facts about Iron Golems

  • Create by stacking 2 Iron Blocks and putting 1 Iron Block on either side of the top Iron Block, top it with a Pumpkin (made with a total of 4 Iron Blocks and 1 Pumpkin)
  • Will only drop a few Iron Ingots and Poppies when killed
  • Can appear naturally in Villages and will protect the Villagers, will stay near a village if natural spawned there or if you created one there
  • Naturally occurring Iron Golems will attack you if you attack them
  • Attacks by swinging their arms and hitting enemies
  • Won't attack Creepers
  • Can pick up, and will give, Poppies to Villagers
Nice work. I never thought of Minecraft instructables. The snow golems are easy to make but tricky to keep in one spot :)

Yeah, I had to tether him to keep him from wandering off. Next time he needs a roof to protect him from the rain :P

we all know how to make golems. we're not noobs.

I like the way you do your indestructibles also these have been very useful to me

Lol love it! You know your minecraft fortunately for you you have a PC that works. :-D

Can someone tell me why the iron golems look like Squidward on steroids?

I agree with sde bruin2. The Iron Golems look like Squidward on Steroids because they protect all the other Squidwards who are in disquise as villagers to escape Spongebob.

But do they like clarinet music?

Yes. It is their favorite instrument :) They hate the Violin though.

I bet guarding Squidward would be the most boring job ever!
