When it comes to adding colour to your Minecraft world, having different dyes is a necessity. Some dyes are easier to make, by just putting flowers or other materials into a crafting table,
but the white dye can a little bit trickier to acquire.
Here is a step-by-step guide to help you add some white dye to your inventory.
Required Materials for White Dye
Lily of the valley
Bonemeal can be made by crafting with a bone, dropped by skeleton enemies, or occasionally fished up as junk. 1 bone makes 3 bone meal. Skeleton enemies can spawn like many other mobs, either at night or in dark places like mine shafts. They can also be found from spawners or in nether fortresses. Skeletons drop 0-2 bones upon being eliminated.
You should run into skeletons often enough in standard play to have plenty of bones to use. Skeleton horses, strays, and wither skeletons all drop bones as well, with the same rate as standard skeletons. This drop amount can be increased by enchanting your sword with any level of Looting. You can also find bones in chests at varying likelihoods in both the Java and Bedrock editions. Lastly, in Bedrock editions, you have a 25% chance of getting 1-2 bones when you kill fish mobs. Salmon, cod, pufferfish, and tropical fish all can drop bones on their death.
Lily of the valley:
First, you need to find a lily of the valley in the game. The lily of the valley is commonly found in biomes such as the Birch Forest, Birch Forest Hills and Flower Forest. Left-click and hold the lily to break it and then store it in your inventory.

How do you dye something white in Minecraft?
You can apply any dye to wool, sheep, the collar of tame wolves, firework stars, leather armour, glass, and clay in Minecraft. When you want to dye an item, you can choose any colour you like for the dye part of the recipe.
There are two ways an object can be dyed. It can either be applied directly by using the dye on it while being placed in the world, or used in the crafting table. Animals such as sheep can be dyed while alive, and shearing their wool will result in the respective colour of dye being produced. However, if you have a piece of wool already in your inventory, a dye can be applied to it in the crafting grid.
