Making a torch in Minecraft is an easy way to light up your world and add some atmosphere to your surroundings. Torches can be used to light up dark areas, create trails for easier navigation and provide a useful source of particulate matter for the player.
With just a few basic materials and a bit of craftsmanship, you can create your own torches that will help you in the game. Here’s how:
To make a torch in Minecraft, you will need the following materials
- One Stick
- One Coal or One Charcoal
To craft a torch, follow the below mentioned steps:
First, gather some wood logs from trees or other sources around your environment. Then convert them into charcoal by burning the logs in a furnace or campfire. This process takes around 8 minutes per log to complete, so be prepared to wait if you are creating lots of charcoal!
You can also get coal from a cave, although you’ll first have to find a cave and then mine coal from it but that’s worth giving a try.
Once you have enough charcoal, you’ll need to acquire some stick items as well. Sticks can be found by breaking down planks from wooden blocks with an Axe, or by using shears on leaf blocks such as oak leaves or birch leaves.
Next, open your inventory and put the stick in the middle block and charcoal in the block just above it in the crafting grid. This combination will form one torch item which can then be placed wherever desired throughout the game world.
In addition to this traditional method of crafting torches, players can also use Redstone dust instead of charcoal for an even brighter version of the torch when placed on walls or ceilings.
The torch will appear in the result box on the right side of the crafting grid. To craft the torch, simply drag it from the result box into your inventory.
To use the torch, place it on the ground or hold it in your hand and right-click to use it as a light source. Torches can be placed on the top or side of most blocks, and they will emit a light level of 14, making them a reliable source of light in the game.
Finally, keep in mind that torches are not indestructible – they will burn out over time as they are exposed to rain and snowfall unless they are protected with shields such as glass panes or iron bars covering them completely from any weather elements.

You can also apply enchantments directly onto the torches themselves such as flame protection which will make them last longer than normal before needing replacement.
