Basic Firework Recipe
  1. Combine Gunpowder with Dye(s) of choice to create a Firework Star. Dyes do not combine to make on color but each color will be used in the sparkles.
  2. A fade effect can be created by combining the Firework Star with other Dye colors. The sparkles will fade out to the Dyes used.
  3. Combine the Firework Star with Paper and Gundpowder to create a firework.

You can add more gunpowder to step 3 to make the flight duration longer. Flight duration goes from level 1 at one second to level 3 for three seconds.

You can also add multiple Firework Stars to step 3 to create different colored explosions and effect from the same rocket. You could, for example, use seven Firework Stars with one Paper and one Gunpowder or create different combinations with the Gunpowder to create longer flight times.

If you want to add special effects to Fireworks, add these items when crafting the Firework Star to get the resulting effect.
  • Gold Nugget = Star Shape
  • Diamond = Trail
  • Glowstone Dust = Twinkle
  • Fire Charge = Big Ball
  • Feathers = Burst
  • Any Mob Head = Creeper Face

Once your firework is crafted, you can simply equip it and place it on the ground by right-clicking and watch it take off. You can also automate the process by using Dispensers and Red Stone to fire off multiple rockets at timed intervals.
