How to Create Fireworks in Minecraft

Making Fireworks in Minecraft is time-consuming, but it’s easy to do. You must create a Firework Star first, requiring gunpowder and dyes of different colors. You can get gunpowders from Desert Pyramids or by killing Creepers in the game.

Next, you need to collect some flowers to create some dyes. You can use flowers or other materials of color to create dyes, but flowers are the easiest to collect. After collecting flowers, you can put them in your crafting option, automatically converting them into dyes.

Moreover, you can also use different color dyes together to create a new dye. If you mix Red and Blue dyes, it will create Purple dyes.
