How to make a Jack-O-Lantern in Minecraft

In a Nutshell:

To make a Jack-O-Lantern, place one carved pumpkin in the crafting GUI, preferably in the center of the 3x3 grid, with a torch stick underneath. Once you complete making a Jack-O-Lantern, move it to your inventory.


Jack-o'-lantern is a sturdy carved pumpkin block that had been updated for Halloween special in Minecraft. In the real world, a jack o'lantern is a festive carved pumpkin lantern that is most connected with the Halloween season. Meanwhile, its usage in Minecraft differs quite a bit from the real world.


First and foremost, they fulfil their purpose as a light source exceptionally similar to a torch. The main difference is that the torch as their light radius is relatively larger, as well as being able to function underwater. Another added benefit was that Jack o Lanterns can keep Hostile Mobs away.
