This instructable will teach you how to make mob stands in survival or creative.
It's 100% safe and your house will become alot cooler.
For this instrucable you'll need 1 normal piston, 5 slabs, 2 glass blocks, a name tag, a lever and a few extra building blocks.
Step 1: Catch Your Mob
Catch your mob, if you have a mob that burns in the sunlight be sure to add a little roof.
Name your mob with a name tag, you can also find a zombie who can hold items and armor.
If you don't name your mob or make it carry your item it will despawn.
Step 2: Push Him in the Stand
Push him into the stand with blocks around it so he can't escape.
I added a small roof above the zombie so he wouldn't burn.
Step 3: Placing the Piston
Place the normal non sticky piston facing down with one block between the zombie's head.
Place a block on the piston with a lever.
Step 4: Pushing the Glass
Place a glass block between the piston and the head of the zombie.
Flick the lever so the glass will go down, flick the lever again to make place again between the piston and the zombie.
Now reapeat that one more time.
Place a slab on the glass blocks so the mob can't get out and can't burn in the sunlight
Step 5: Enjoy!
Remove excess blocks and you're done.
The mob also can not hit you and creepers won't explode.
