What You’ll Need

-A piece of obsidian

Making a Glow Stick

Glow sticks are a type of light source that can be used to illuminate dark areas or to provide light during a power outage. Glow sticks can be purchased at most hardware stores and are relatively easy to make.

To make a glow stick, you will need the following materials:

-A glass bottle
-A piece of string or yarn
-A piece of paper
-A pencil
-A black light (optional)


1. Cut the paper into strips that are about 1/2 inch wide and 3 inches long.

2. Tape the strips of paper around the outside of the glass bottle. Make sure that the paper is wrapped tightly around the bottle so that no light can escape.

3. Cut a piece of string or yarn that is about 6 inches long and tie it around the neck of the bottle.

4. Turn off all the lights in the room and turn on the black light (if you have one).

5. Hold the glow stick up to the black light and watch it glow!

Tips and Tricks

1. Start by gathering some materials. You will need a piece of obsidian, a fire charge, a redstone torch, and a glowstone dust.

2. Place the obsidian in the center of your crafting table.

3. Add the fire charge to the top left slot of the obsidian.

4. Add the redstone torch to the top right slot of the obsidian.

5. Add the glowstone dust to the bottom slot of the obsidian.

6. Place your cursor over the resulting item and hold down the left mouse button to scoop it up into your hotbar.

7. Now that you have your glow stick, you can use it by holding down the right mouse button while looking in the direction you want to place it.


To make a glow stick in Minecraft Education Edition, you will need:
-A piece of string or wool
-A glass bottle

3. To make the string or wool luminescent, hold it up to a source of light (i.e. a torch) and right click on the string/wool with the glass bottle in your hand.
