Firework-making is very simple once you get the hang of it because it starts as a very complex and creative process. You can create many fireworks of many different shapes and sizes. Thousands of alternatives are waiting for you to discover them. I recommend that before you continue reading, you open Minecraft and follow the instructions in-game. So, let’s start!
Before you start, doesn’t matter if you’re in survival or creative, YOU NEED GUNPOWDER!!!
Also, get at least 1 dye.
Step 1: Creating the Firework Star
First go to your crafting table, place gunpowder and then your dye/s. (You need at least 1 dye, but you can do multicolor explosions by placing different colored dyes). Also, you can place one of these objects in the recipe:
- · Fire Charge (Big Ball Shape)
- · Creeper Head (Creeper shaped)
- · Feather
- · Gold Nugget
I call these the “shaping objects”. These help you shape the firework. (NOTE: YOU CAN ONLY PLACE ONE OF THESE PER FIREWORK STAR)
Also, you can add diamonds or glowstone dust or even both in one recipe to give it a trail effect (Diamond) and a twinkle effect (glowstone dust) while it goes up into the air.
Step 2 (Optional): Fading Effects
In this OPTIONAL step, you can make a firework explosion fade after the main explosion. For example, if I have a green firework star, and I want it to fade to purple, I do the following:
First, I place the firework star in my crafting table, and then I just add the dye color that I want it to fade to, and pick up the newly-crafted firework star and we are done with that step. (NOTE: You may put various fade effects onto one firework star)
Step 3: Rocket Building
To craft a rocket, just add gunpowder according to the flight time you want (1-3) and place the firework star. (NOTE: You may place multiple firework stars in one rocket for it to have many explosions). The last step is to place a paper in the recipe and you’re done.
Many have asked me about the firework rocket you can get in creative mode; I just wanted to say that it is almost useless. The only thing it does is flying into the air and disappears. This can also be crafted in survival, but please, don’t waste your materials when creating a simple rocket with no explosions.
Step 4 (Optional): Giving the firework a name
In this OPTIONAL step, you can give a firework rocket a name like for example, calling a green creeper firework a Creeper Firework.
So, this is how you make fireworks in Minecraft, if they add things in the process of making fireworks, I will be sure to update this blog. Be sure to leave a diamond if it helped and subscribe to see more from me!!!
