Steps To Craft A Torch
1. Open Your Crafting Menu
First, let's open your crafting table in Minecraft. You should see the same grid as in the image below.
2. Add The Coal Or Charcoal And Stick To The Menu
In the crafting table, add the coal or charcoal and stick to the grid. You only need either 1 coal or 1 charcoal to make a torch. You do NOT need both.
You must add the items to the crafting grid exactly as shown in the image below. In the 1st row, place down the coal or charcoal in the middle box. In the 2nd row place down the stick in the middle box. That's it! This is the Minecraft torch recipe.
Now that you've added the items to the crafting grid as described above, you'll notice 4 torches appear in the box on the right.
3. Move The Torches To Your Inventory
Lastly, you'll need to drag the torches down to your inventory so you can use them.
You now have 4 torches. A Minecraft torch is a non-solid block that gives off light. They can also be used as a crafting ingredient to make a lantern, a jack o' lantern, an underwater torch, and different color torches.
