In today’s guide, in fact, I will show you how to make fireworks in Minecraft to use them in celebrations or, if you have obtained the Elitre, to fly and quickly reach your destinations. I will therefore explain to you the materials that you will need to obtain for the realization of this project and how to create fireworks with different colors.

If you are impatient to start reading the tips I wrote for you in this guide of mine, all you have to do is sit comfortably and dedicate only a few minutes of your free time. I am sure that by the end of the reading, you too will have managed to create some fireworks to dabble in Minecraft. All that remains for me is to wish you a good read and, above all, good fun!

  • Create the fireworks

Gather the necessary materials

Before we start talking to you about how to make fireworks in Minecraft, it is necessary that you know what are the resources you need to get for the realization of this project.

The essential materials for making fireworks are gunpowder and paper. The latter can be created starting from sugar cane and, in this regard, I suggest you read my guide dedicated to this topic.

As for gunpowder, you can find it as a treasure inside the trunks scattered around the world of Minecraft, or by defeating the creeperswitches and ghasts of the Nether.

With the materials thus obtained, you can create pyrotechnic rockets that do not explode, useful to be used together with the Elitre, a set of wings that you can find as a reward in the chests located in the City of the End. I told you about it in detail in my guide on how to fly in Minecraft.

If, on the other hand, you want to create real fireworks, you will have to add the pyrotechnic star among the materials, which I will tell you about in the next chapter.

Create a pyrotechnic star

As I mentioned in the previous chapter, a pyrotechnic rocket does not explode and, therefore, it is necessary to add the pyrotechnic star during the making of the fireworks.

This object does not have a specific project for its realization, as different materials can be added to obtain pyrotechnic effects of different types. The basic material to create a pyrotechnic star is gunpowder: I have already explained to you how to obtain it in the previous chapter of the tutorial.

In addition to this material, you must insert a dye of your choice: you can get it from the processing of plants, such as the red that is obtained from the poppy or the yellow from the sunflower; in addition, it can be extracted from other resources, such as blue from lapis lazuli or white from bones. By doing so, the explosion of the firework produces pyrotechnic effects of the same color used in the project.

If a unit of dye is added on a pyrotechnic star, the blending effect will also be obtained during the explosion. For example, if you created a star pyrotechnic color red and add, at a later stage, even the ‘ blue, the explosion of fireworks will create a red color with a gradient effect on blue.

In addition to the coloring effects, you can create fireworks with particular elements. To give you a few examples, if you add a diamond while making a pyrotechnic star, the explosion of the firework will create a trail.

In addition to the example of diamonds, other materials you can use are the feather, to make the explosion more crackling, the luminite dust, to make it brighter, the gold nugget, to give the explosion the shape of a star. , or a head of any creature, to give it the shape of a creeper’s head.

The diamonds are obtained from the processing of crude diamond blocks, which has in the subsoil. As for the feather, it is obtained from hens, while the head of a creature is rarely obtained from the defeat of a skeleton, a creeper or a zombie, just to give you a few examples.

The of Luminite dust, however, you are achieved by destroying the Luminite blocks that are in the Nether. Finally, gold nuggets are obtained from the processing of a gold bar.

Create the fireworks

Now that you know all the materials you need to create fireworks, it’s time to take action. First, place one unit of gunpowder and one paper unit on a workbench.

With this simple composition, three units of pyrotechnic rockets are obtained which, as I have already anticipated in a previous chapter, will not explode but can be useful with the Elitre, to gain altitude during the flight.

Now, however, also add a pyrotechnic star with the customized effects you created thanks to my tips in this chapter of the guide, in order to get real fireworks. The object obtained will always be a fireworks rocket but, in its description, you will find the effects applied to it.

Now you just have to equip the rocket in a quick slot and interact on the ground to launch it into the air and see the pyrotechnic effect that lights up the sky. It was easy, wasn’t it?
