Community Crafting Bench: Halloween Handiwork

Spooky season is upon us! Get ready to craft Jack o’Lanterns, make some pumpkin pies, and start working on your hay bale mazes.

I’ve been getting into the spirit of the season early this year and gave myself a challenge: create a Minecraft costume from scratch, using only things I was able to find around the house. Old cardboard boxes and construction paper have never looked so good… well, until they were accompanied by a painted creeper pumpkin, that is!

The Community Crafting Bench is a new series where we’re asking the community to share the fun Minecraft creations you’re making in real life. The theme of the first one is, of course, Spooky Season! If you have any fantastic costumes, pumpkins, or other spooktacular creations that you would like to share with us, dust off the cobwebs and send it our way by tagging it with #SpookyMinecraft.

We’ll be tiptoeing through your spooky submissions from now until October 24 and will share our favorite submissions in an article right here on Have a frightfully delightful time brewing up some ghoulish goods!

By using the #SpookyMinecraft tag, you:

  • Agree that you are the one that created it, and that you're not violating anyone else's intellectual property or publicity rights.
  • Agree that the creation can be used in an article on
  • Agree to Minecraft's community standards when choosing what to submit.
