How to make Fireworks
Minecraft fireworks are just as good as the real thing, without the risk of accidents!
A Firework Rocket is made by combining paper, gunpowder and, optionally, one or more Firework Stars.
The amount of gunpowder determines how long the rocket flies before exploding; up to three pieces can be used.
Firework Stars are made by combining gunpowder, one or more dyes, and optional special effects items.
The dye controls the main colour of the firework. Two or more dyes will make a multicolour firework.
These items will add a special effect to your firework star:
|Diamond||Firework will leave a trail|
|Glowstone Dust||Firework will twinkle|
Each firework star can only contain one of the below effects:
|Fire Charge||Makes a large firework|
|Gold Nugget||Firework will be star shape|
|Feather||Adds a bursting effect|
|Mob head||Makes the firefork explode in a creeper shape|
After a firework star is made, you can add a second colour for it to fade to after bursting.
Make your firework stars
This one is red, with a fire charge to make a bigger bang.
This one is yellow, and the diamond will give it a trail.
Crafting the red firework star with another dye will give it a second colour to fade into.
Assemble the firework
You need one paper, 1–3 gunpowder (in separate slots) and as many firework stars as you want.
Launch your firework by right-clicking, or launch it from a dispenser.
