There are some types of fireworks that you are able to craft in Minecraft. So, if you want to make a cool firework, you just have to choose which type of firework that you want to craft and see in the sky. The types of firework include small ball, burst, large ball, star-shaped and creeper-shaped fireworks and they can be in various colors.
A firework star will determine the type and color of the fireworks. Firework stars are created by combining gunpowder, one or more dyes and optional special effects items. The dye will control the main color of the firework. If you use two or more dyes, it will make a multicolour firework. Special effects can be made by adding these items.
