I would like to know how to make a floating item in Minecraft.

Here is a great example made on the Hypixel server:

  • just saying in the text next to the picture, it was not in the hypixel server, it was on one of his adventure maps! – kevinbestkiller Jul 31 '16 at 8:56

You dont even have to use a plugin, you can do that with commands. There is a really good editor which generates the command for you: http://haselkern.github.io/Minecraft-ArmorStand/

In your case there are 3 Armor stands with diffrent arm positions, all of them are invisible holding a Iron sword.

  • I really like this website for making thing! Thanks a lot :D – kevinbestkiller Apr 11 '16 at 15:19

There is a nice Bukkit plugin names ShowCaseStandalone that allows what you want.

Otherwise, there is a second solution. As explained by Skylinerw on minecraftforum.net,

You can summon the item entity riding an invisible armor stand that has NoGravity set to 1:

/summon Item ~ ~5 ~ {Item:{id:minecraft:stone,Count:1},Riding:{id:ArmorStand,Marker:1,Invisible:1,NoGravity:1}}

    That summoning command is outdated for 1.9. You now have to summon an armorstand that has an item as their passenger. I.e. /summon ArmorStand ~ ~5 ~ {Marker:1,Invisible:1,Marker:1,Passengers:[{id:Item,tag:{Item:{id:minecraft:stone,Count:1}}}]} – MrLemon Apr 11 '16 at 14:31
