How to make Red Dye in Minecraft

Here's everything you need to know about making red dye in Minecraft.

If you want to make red dye in Minecraft, you will need to gather a few flowers in the game along with one vegetable to make it.  

Once you gather one of these items, you can make red dye by placing it anywhere inside a crafting table - here's also every item in the game that can be used to make red dye in Minecraft.

  • Beetroot
  • Rose Bush
  • Red Tulip
  • Poppy

Overall there are plenty of items players can gather up to make red dye in Minecraft. Starting with beetroot, you can find this resource both in deserts and the Forrest village farms. If you don't know how to find a village, try our how to find a village in Minecraft guide.

Moving on, for rose bushes, you will need to search the forest biome, same goes for red tulips, but you can also find them in the plains biome. Now for the final item, poppies, you can get them from killing gloems, and find them growing in most biomes in the game. 

That being said, we highly recommend farming whatever item is most coinvent to you as items poppies wouldn't be worth going after in the long run.
