"Create" vs. "Make" in English

What Is Their Main Difference?

'Create' and 'make' both refer to the production of something, but 'make' refers to combining some items together without any creativity, whereas 'create' is when someone brings something into existence, something unique that has been produced for the first time.

Differences

Both of these words are used when we want to show that something is produced. 'Create' shows that something is brought into existence, it is unique because there is creativity behind it. It is the first of its kind. Look at the examples below:

Mary Shelly created Victor Frankenstein in the 18th century.

God created humans and that was her biggest mistake.

'Make' is also used for production. When we 'make' something, we combine several already-made materials together. We make food, desserts, bread, etc. There is no creativity behind it. It is manual and human-made. Look below:

I wish I knew how to make cheesecakes.

I've decided to make white fries for you this weekend.

Similarities

We use both of these words to show the production of something. Look at the following examples:

I wonder who has created all this beauty in nature?

She can't wait for the day you guys make pasta.

Are They Interchangeable?

Although both of these words are used to show the production of something, if we use them interchangeably, we might confuse the listener. Look below:

✓ The manager said that he wants to make a little sandwich for himself.

X The manager said that he wants to create a little sandwich for himself.

As you can see, the second sentence makes no sense.
