You can use a campfire as a decorative item and it will help you to light up the area that will be around you and you can try to imitate the real world with a trail of smoke that is rising into the air. You can even make it more realistic according to your choice.
Three are different materials that are required to make a campfire in Minecraft and they are three wooden sticks, one coal or you can use one charcoal and you need to have three wooden blocks or you can also use three logs of any kind of wood. As you know a stick is required in making everything in Minecraft so you need to have four sticks at a time.
It is a very easy step to locate the coal ore but there is one condition that it should be there in large deposits. You can find the coal ore normally between the four and fifteen blocks that should be below level. After that, you need to dig up the coal ore with a pickaxe in order to mine for coal. There is no other tool that will help the coal to drop.
But you need to know the steps in detail in order to make Campfire. So without taking any further let us start with how you can make a campfire in Minecraft.
How to Make Campfire in Minecraft
Firstly in order to make a campfire, you need to open the crafting table that is made up of a 3×3 grid. After that, you need to place three wooden logs of your choice that will be of any kind in the last row, and in the center, you need to place coal. Then finally in the remaining sides of the coal, you need to place three sticks there.
This was all about how you can make it but you need to know in detail all these steps and need to know from where you will get the materials. After you will make a campfire then one thing that you need to do is you need to move that to your inventory.
The wood you are going to need can be from any of the following trees they are Spruce, Oak, Birch, Arcia, Jungle, and Dark Oak. the method to acquire a log is the same. You need to locate a tree. Then you need to equip your axe and you can do it with your hand too but at the sacrifice of chopping speed. You need to left-click on a block of the tree’s trunk and you need to hold it.
Then you need to depend on the tier of your axe that the log will drop. In the last, you need to pick it up and all you need is the materials that are required to make a campfire. So let’s get started.
Now let us discuss this in detail. Firstly you need to open the crafting table that will have the 3×3 grid. In the second step, you need to place the sticks. As you know it requires three sticks so you need to place the first stick in the second cell of the first row and you need to place the second stick in the first cell of the second row.
Talking about the third stick you need to place that in the third cell of the second row. You need to make sure that these sticks are placed in the right direction.
After this, you need to place the coal. As you will place the sticks then you need to move to the next time required that is coal. It is placed in the center of the grid and the center is the second cell of the second row. In the fourth step, you need to place the wood logs. You should know that three logs are required for a campfire and the only compliment that is required in the recipe when you will place it in the last row is that you need to fill it entirely as we told you to do.
After this, you need to drag the campfire item to your inventory. As you have finally crafted the campfire that you require now all you need to do is to drag it into your inventory. Once you will do this you are ready to place it anywhere you like to place it.
