How to make a Campfire in Minecraft

A campfire's purpose in Minecraft is versatile. It is mostly used as a decorative item that can light up the area around you and try to imitate real-world fire with a trail of smoke rising into the air, making it even more realistic. Its ability to light up the surroundings can be compared to that of a torch. However, it cannot be broken down easily and restored in the inventory, which makes it suitable only for lighting up your home base.


But lighting up the environment isn’t the only thing campfires are useful for! They can melt up to 3 snow blocks surrounding it. Moreover, campfires can be used as a source of heat to cook your raw food. Right-click on the fire for up to four raw food items, and they will appear around it, cooking at the same time. The cooked version will pop up, ready for collection, after 30 seconds.


Due to the trail of smoke rising from the campfires, they can be used as signals guiding you to your home base. Lastly, they can be also used to farm honey without the potential threat of being attacked by bees.


Required Materials:


Material you need in order to craft a campfire are:

  1. 3 wooden sticks
  2. 1 coal or 1 charcoal
  3. 3 wooden blocks or 3 logs of any wood


A stick in Minecraft is an important simple object that is used to build several other items in the game. 4 sticks at a time will be produced by the following crafting process. Here’s how you can make your own crafting table.


4 sticks at a time will be produced


It is easy to locate coal ore, given that it is found in large deposits. You will normally find coal ore between 4 and 15 blocks below level. You need to dig up the coal ore with a pickaxe to mine for coal; since any other tool will not cause the coal to drop.

Last but not the least, you need logs or wood of any type from the following: Oak, Birch, Spruce, Dark Oak, Acacia, and Jungle. The fundamental method of acquiring log is the same. First, you locate a tree. Equip your axe, although you can do it with your hand too at the sacrifice of chopping speed. Left-click on a block of the tree’s trunk and hold. Depending on the tier of your axe a block of the log will drop. Pick it up. You now have all the materials to make a campfire, so let’s dive right in!
