Halloween is just around the corner, meaning it’s the perfect time to put your creativity into pumpkin carving. If you’re a Minecraft enthusiast and are wondering what to do with the pumpkins you picked up at the local patch, these are the best Minecraft pumpkin carving ideas for Halloween.
The perks of the characters in Minecraft is that their block-based designs make them simple to replicate. If you have any paints on hand, you can make your carved pumpkins look even better.
What You Need To Carve Pumpkins
The only thing you need to make an excellent carved pumpkin is some good tools and your imagination. If you aren’t familiar with using sharp objects, use caution and have someone help you if possible. The pumpkin will have some seeds inside, which you can roast in the oven and snack on. The fibers inside will have to be scooped and discarded.
Enderman or Ender Dragon
Pertaining you don’t mind something that might look a little creepy, consider carving out an Enderman. Shape the eyes, which are a simple rectangle shape, and paint the pumpkin black. Put a purple light inside to replicate the Endermans eye glow and you have a treasure of the End. You could also make the Ender Dragon with this method by adding a snout and some horns on top.
With some green paint, you can recreate a Creeper design on a pumpkin. Carve out its square-shaped facial features and put any battery-powered candle inside for a spooky glow.
If you have traveled to the End in Minecraft, you know these pumpkin masks are crucial for protection. There’s no better inspiration than the pumpkins themselves in Minecraft. With these around, no ghouls or Enderman will attack you.

If you have young children who aren’t quite ready to help carve a pumpkin, consider having them paint their favorite Minecraft animal on one instead! Axolotls are very popular and come in different colors, so kids can paint the one they like the best. Use pipe cleaners to create the frills and you have your own pumpkin Axolotl. Other good recreation ideas are foxes, pandas, frogs, and dogs.
Overall, there’s no better way to spend the Halloween weekend than by carving pumpkins inspired by your favorite game characters!
