How To Acquire Pumpkins In Minecraft
Pumpkins can be found in most Minecraft biomes. They can also spawn in enemy structures, such as woodland mansions and pillager outposts.
Pumpkins can also be farmed with the use of pumpkin seeds. Many villages also have pumpkin farms where you can take and cultivate pumpkins.
Additionally, it is possible to find a carved pumpkin naturally. Mobs may be wearing carved pumpkins as helmets if you are playing on Halloween. You can also harvest carved pumpkins from scarecrows. Pumpkins can also be looted from shipwreck chests.
Carving A Pumpkin In Minecraft
Carving a pumpkin in Minecraft is simple. All you need to do is use a pair of shears on the pumpkin you want. Shears can be easily crafted by placing two iron bars diagonally into the crafting table. This will also change the item from ‘Pumpkin’ to ‘Carved Pumpkin’.
