How to make fireworks in Minecraft

To make fireworks in Minecraft, players require the following items.

  • Gunpowder
  • Paper
  • Dye

These are the raw materials you need to make fireworks. To get gunpowder, players need to kill a creeper. Killing creepers is pretty straightforward, as they self-destruct. Simply going near them will make them explode, so you need to retaliate quickly. Once the creeper is dead, you will get gunpowder.

To get paper, you need sugar cane. Once you have three sugar cane, place them horizontally on the crafting table to craft a paper. Now the next item you need is a firework star. This can be made using gunpowder and dye. Use the desired colour of dye depending on which colour you want your fireworks to be.

The firework star is the item that can help you customize your fireworks. Here are the items you can add to get the various effects.

  • Twinkle Effect – Glowstone Dust
  • Trial Effect – Diamond
  • Fire Charge – Spherical Explosion
  • Gold Nugget – Star-shaped Explosion
  • Head – Creeper Face Explosion
  • Feather – Burst Shape Explosion
