Dyes help to add color to the world in Minecraft and is therefore an important element in the game. Like any other item in Minecraft, dyes can be easily obtained with the help of crafting table and other materials. Green dye (previously called cactus green) is a very popular dye in games, but for some people, the process of creating it can be a bit tricky. Today’s guide will take you through the step-by-step process of creating a green dye from scratch in Minecraft.

To begin the process, you will need the following materials:

  • A Cactus
  • A source of fuel (a bucket of lava, coal, charcoal, or wooden materials)
  • A furnace

Of all these materials, obtaining cactus is probably the most complicated, because it is difficult to find deserts in Minecraft. However, once this obstacle is overcome, it becomes very easy to find cactus because they are abundant in the desert. You can destroy cacti like any other block to collect cactus. After completing this step, you can continue to make green dye!

Once you’ve successfully obtained all the materials needed to make green dye, you can begin the process:

  • Begin the process by opening the furnace. After you do so, place the cactus in the upper slot.
  • Fill the lowermost slot with any fuel of your choice.
  • Wait until the arrow in the middle is full and your cactus is completely cooked. Once your cactus is cooked, you can collect your green dye from the furnace!

After completing this process, you can now use the green dye from the furnace for any purposes.
