Crafting is a performable action in DayZ where players can combine items to produce a new item or change the state of an existing one.
Crafting can be performed by:-
- Having one required item in the hands slot and dragging the other item in Inventory over the left-hand side 'Combine' area of the hands slot, then holding the action key until Crafting is complete
- Having one required item in the hands slot and looking at the other item, then holding the action key until Crafting is complete

Using a Barrel
The Oil Barrel is required for a number of useful crafting recipes, allowing a player to dye clothing and convert items into other items. The barrel itself can also be converted into a Barrel with Holes, which essentially turns it into a deployable fireplace for cooking.
Dying clothing, as of the current version of dayz version 1.07 is not currently in the game. Maybe brought back sometime in 2020.. no official word if will or wont be.
- Adding Color (Cloth)
NOTE: The items listed above are only ingredients that can be used for dyeing T-Shirts and Armbands. They must be combined in correct proportions in a barrel along with the item to be dyed. A color chart with the exact amounts of each item needed to achieve specific colors can be found here: Color Wheel by Setup & FalconRP
- Changing Color (Leather)
NOTE: The above are only examples of what is possible. For exact amounts of each ingredient needed to dye a particular piece of clothing, please visit the article for that specific clothing item.
NOTE: Fertilizer created using the amounts above is 10%. More of each ingredient in proportion can be used to achieve a similarly higher amount of fertilizer.
(DOES NOT WORK SINCE 1.06)
- Tanned Leather
There is currently no leather crafting in official game currently as of 1.07 may return in a future update.
NOTE: The above is only an example of how to tan pelts into leather. The amount of Garden Lime required will vary between pelts, and so will the number of Tanned Leather produced by each type of pelt.
