Despite the fact that it has been out for over a decade, Minecraft is as popular as ever. The creativity the game provides players is still almost endless, allowing you to go on adventures and build a handful of items that lead to the creation of other interesting things. Here is everything you need to know about how to make a Jack o Lantern in Minecraft.
No matter if it is PC or console, the first thing you’ll need to do in order to make a Jack o Lantern in Minecraft is gather the necessary materials.
To be exact, this glowing pumpkin head requires players to find and combine a torch with a carved pumpkin.
Torches can either be found throughout the world or can be created by combining charcoal or coal with a stick. Simply make sure the charcoal or coal is placed on the top middle of the 3×3 grid, with the stick right under it, directly in the middle.
Now that you’ve got the light, look around the world for pumpkins. Since they are plants, pumpkins are usually only found in the Extreme Hills biome or Plains biome.
Once you’ve found and dug up a pumpkin, get a pair of sheers. These are necessary for carving out the pumpkin to make the face of the Jack o Lantern.
Sheers can be made using two iron ingots. Place one in the top middle of the 3×3 crafting grid and the other in the left middle area in order to get sheers.

Use the sheers on the pumpkin to create a carved pumpkin, then place it in the top middle slot, with the torch right below it in the very center of the grid. Once that is done, you’ve got your very own Jack o Lantern.
Now that you’ve crafted this glowing pumpkin head, you can create sentient beings like Iron Golem and Snowman. Alongside the creation of life, making these creatures results in the ability to also build helpful things like the Snowball Farm – a farm that gives you unlimited snowballs through housing a Snowman.
That should just about cover everything you need to know about how to create Jack o Lanterns in Minecraft. Be sure to search Twinfinite if you’re looking for other helpful tips and tricks with the game, especially considering how much there is to create.
