      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 a point where the more you work on a material, the more things you can do with it . This is the case with carved pumpkins. Now we're going to show you two cool things you can make with these fun crafts.

      Jack-o'-lantern

      Would you like to make your carved pumpkin even scarier? You can make it glow in the dark by turning it into a Jack-o'-lantern. To do this, break the item and take it with you. Then go to your crafting table and place it on the central square. Then place a flashlight under it. The result will be a carved spooky pumpkin whose face shines in the dark .

      snow and iron golem

      Whoever said carved pumpkins were just for decoration was dead wrong. These items play a major role in summoning golems, creatures that they can help you when fighting mobs . There are two versions of these entities: iron golem and snow golem. The former is stronger than the latter, but 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 . Arrange all the iron blocks in a T shape. Finally, place the carved pumpkin on the central block.

      A short time later, you will see how this structure transforms into an imposing one iron golem . You can tie a rope to him so he follows you or let him loose and see what he does. We said it was the hardest to make because it takes a lot of iron to make 4 blocks.



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

      Arrange the snow in the shape of a column and finally place the pumpkin as a head. Thus, he will turn into a living snowman. This will help you fight mobs by throwing snowballs at them. Also, as he walks, he will leave a trail of snow that you can use 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) Don't let the snow golem go to desert, jungle, plateau or savannah, as it will take damage. Also, don't let it get near water or it will melt . We hope you get the most out of pumpkin carving in Minecraft with these tips.
