The first thing you have to do is find some type of wood, whatever it is. So look for a tree and hit it with your hands, until you get the wooden blocks. You will then need to place a wooden block anywhere on your crafting grid to turn it into a wooden plank.
When you have the planks, you will need to place them on a crafting grid vertically, one on top of the other to get the sticks. A couple of planks will allow you to get four sticks.
That is all you have to know about how to make sticks in Minecraft and now that you know it, we hope that you are ready to make this item that you can use for the manufacture of many parts and tools.
