How to carve pumpkins in Minecraft to make Halloween decorations

Carving pumpkins in Minecraft is really easy. To perform this process, you will first need to obtain the following tools and materials:

  • Pair of scissors.
  • Pumpkins.

To create the cutting tool you will need two iron ingots. Go to your work table and place them diagonally, one after the other. As for pumpkins, we recommend that you learn how to make a garden in order to grow them.

However, you can also get pumpkins in a village near your Minecraft home. This way you can bring the seeds to your garden.

Now that you have everything you need, it's time to carve the pumpkin. To do this, place the fruit in the desired place. Therefore, with scissors in hand, click on it and voila, you will have a carved pumpkin with a terrifying face; ideal for decorating your spaces. It is so easy to make a Halloween decoration in Minecraft.

It should be noted that it is not possible to place this object without a support block, but after placing it it is possible to remove that block. Also, when you put the carved pumpkin in one spot, its face will always point in the direction of the player.

Things you can do with carved pumpkins in Minecraft

Minecraft is a very complex game. Over the years it has grown in development and has reached the point where, the more you work on a material, the more you can do with it. This is the case with the carved pumpkins. Now we are going to show you two cool things you can make with these fun items.


Would you like to make your carved pumpkin even scarier? You can make it glow in the dark by turning it into a Jack lantern. To do this, break the object and take it with you. Then go to your work table and place it in the center square. Then, place a flashlight under it. The result will be a ghostly carved pumpkin whose face is glows in the dark.

Iron and snow golem

Whoever said that the carved pumpkins are only for decoration are mistaken. These objects play a major role in summoning golems, creatures that they can help you when fighting mobs. There are two versions of these entities: iron and snow golems. The former is stronger than the latter, but it is more difficult to do.

To create an iron golem you will need 4 iron blocks (yes, blocks, not ingots) and of course one carved pumpkin. Place all the iron blocks in a T shape. Finally, place the carved pumpkin on the center block.

A short time later, you will see how this structure transforms into an imposing one iron golem. You can tie a rope for it to follow you or release it and see what it does. We said it was the most difficult to make because it takes a lot of iron to make 4 blocks.

On the other hand, if you don't have a lot of material yet but still want a battle partner, you can make a snow golem. To do this, you will need 2 blocks of snow and, again, a carved pumpkin.

Place the snow in the shape of a column and finally place the pumpkin as a head. Then he will turn into a living snowman. This will help you fight mobs by throwing snowballs at them. In addition, when walking, it will leave a trail of snow that it will serve to collect "Ammunition".

Now, some tips.

  • 1) If you summon both golems, don't keep them too close to each other as they may start attacking each other.
  • 2) Do not allow the snow golem to go to the desert, jungle, plateau or savannah as it will take damage. Also, don't let it get close to water or it will melt. We hope that with these tips you will make the most of the carved pumpkins in Minecraft.
