This is the fourth of July version of "minecraft instructions". I will teach you how to make many different kinds of fire works.
#1.) How to make a fire work star. (You will need them to make the different fireworks.) On the left side in the middle row put one gunpowder. In the middle put any dye. Instead of dye you can also use peppers, ink sacks, or cocoa beans. To change the shape of your firework you can put different things in the middle space of the bottom row. If you put a fire charge there, then your firework will be a big explosion. A gold nugget will make it star shaped. A feather will make it be a burst. And if you put any head there then your firework will look like a creeper head.
#2.) How to make the firework. First in the middle row on the left you put paper. Then in the middle you put gunpowder. That design will make a small explosion.
#3.) How to make the cooler explosions. To make better fireworks, put paper in the middle and gunpowder to the right of it. Then on the left of it put any of the firework stars you have made. (The color of your firework star will be the color of your firework.) The more gunpowder you put on the top and the bottom rows, the longer your firework will last.
#4.) How to add special effects to your firework. While crafting the firework star, put a diamond gem anywhere in your crafting area for a trail behind your firework when it shoots off. For a twinkle effect after your firework goes off, put glowstone dust anywhere in your crafting area while making your firework star.
