How to Make Torches in Minecraft

Craft torches from charcoal and sticks. Place charcoal directly above a stick in your crafting area to make torches. Each pair of ingredients makes four torches.

Are you tired of stumbling around in the dark when playing Minecraft? Torches can be a lifesaver when it comes to exploring caves or building structures at night. In this guide, we will show you how to make torches in Minecraft.

First, you will need to collect some wood by chopping down trees. After that, turn the wood into planks and create a crafting table. With the crafting table, you can make sticks and a wooden pickaxe. Leave two extra sticks as we will use them later.

If you are lucky enough to be in an area with coal, you can mine it and use it to make torches. Coal can be found on the sides of mountains or in caves. Once you have collected some coal, it’s time to head back to the crafting table.

In the crafting table, click on the icon with a torch, a bed, and buckets. This will bring up the crafting recipe for torches. All you need is one stick and one piece of coal. Click on the ingredients, and you will have created a torch.

Now you can place the torches wherever you need them, and they will provide light to help you see in the dark. For example, if you are mining in a cave, you can place torches to light your way and prevent mobs from spawning.

In conclusion, torches are easy to make and can be incredibly useful in Minecraft. With just a stick and a piece of coal, you can create a torch to light your way. No more stumbling around in the dark!
