Making a Composter in Minecraft
You only need one item to make a composter in Minecraft: wooden slabs. You will need seven of them to make one composter.
You will first need to make woodblocks and then wood planks for making wooden slabs.
Go to a forest and look for trees. The trees can be of any variety; acacia, birch, jungle, oak, etc. Use an ax to chop the tree’s trunk and get wood. You will need at least two wood blocks from the same type of tree. They can be either two oak wood blocks, two acacia wood blocks, or any other wooden block.
Once you have your wood blocks, open your crafting table. Place one wood block in one of the crafting menu slots. Crafting them together will give you four wooden planks. Repeat the process to get eight wooden planks. You will need at least six of them to make the seven wooden slabs.
Finally, open your crafting table and place three wood planks in the middle row. Craft them together to get six wood slabs. Repeat the process to get seven wood slabs.

Using the Composter in Minecraft
Place your composter on the ground. Now, add some of the composting items from the list above. Seven layers of material are required for the composter to produce bone meal. Each time one layer is completed, you will see green particles, and the next begins.
Different composting items have different rates of creating composting layers. For example, cakes and pumpkin pies will create one layer every time. However, some things like saplings require at least four pieces to make one layer. Moreover, items will have a different rate of creating composting layers each time. For example, if five saplings make one layer one time, they might more or less next time.
Once the composting layers are complete, the composter will begin its job and spill some bone meal.
