Do you know? If you are not getting rid of mob attacks in Minecraft, you can build a snowman defense tower to protect your village base and villagers from these mobs.
You have heard about a dog protecting a house, a golem defending the village, but have you heard, a snowman can also safeguard a base.
Yes, a snowman can defend your living place by fighting with all dangerous and nasty mobs, but you simply have to add some creativity to it.
What is a snowman defense tower?
A snowman defense tower is a tower where you can place snowmen that will protect your base against mobs by shooting them with snowballs, or should I say fire snowballs because normal snowballs don’t deal any damage.
Steps of Building Snowman defense tower in Minecraft
To make a Snowman defense tower, you need these materials- 10 stone blocks,16 stone stairs, some carved pumpkins, 4 soul sand, flint and steel, and some snow blocks.
So, after you collect all the resources for making a snowman defense tower, you can follow these steps to complete your goal:
Place 3 blocks on top of each other(Stone blocks are best).
Place stone stairs at the bottom of the tower from each side.
Place stairs at the top upside down on all 4 sides.
Place 4 soul sand over each stair that you just placed so that you can put fire that won’t go out. (In Minecraft, you can find soul sand in the nether.)
Place two Stone stairs above each soul sand. Then break the bottom layer of stairs. It makes like a window for the snowmen to shoot snowballs toward mobs.
Now right-click\Tap on each soul sand with flint and steel to ignite the blue flame.

Place 1 stone block above the top stairs and start creating snowmen. To make a snowman, just put two snow blocks on top of each other, then place a carved pumpkin on the top. You can make at least 8 snowmen for the tower.
You can see the snowman doesn’t melt from the fire.
Make a roof. In case of rain, the snowman melts. So to protect it from rain, build a roof at the top after you finish building all the snowmen.
There, you successfully created a snowman defense tower in Minecraft, and Now, wait for the mobs to spawn and see how the snowmen attack them. It looks cool too.
