Do you know how to make an Iron Golem in Minecraft? If your answer is ‘NO’ then this guide will explain in the simplest way possible. Before we explain how to create an Iron Golem, let me tell you they are tough utility mobs, protecting villagers and player from attacks and help them defend against opponents. Usually, golems spawn inside a village, however, Minecraft players can also create an iron golem of their own.


In this guide, you will learn how to create your own iron golem in Minecraft. Without any further ado, let’s go through the guide.

How to make an Iron Golem in Minecraft?

Step 1: Create four iron blocks

In order to create a single iron block, you will have to mix nine ingots on a crafting table. So, to make four iron blocks, you need to have at least 36 ingots. This will provide you with one iron golem.

Step 2: Collect a pumpkin

It is to be noted that Punmpiks don’t grow on tall grass or snow but you can easily grow them on a grass block with air above it. The place to discover pumpkins in Minecraft is near the plains biomes. For one Iron golem, you will need to have one Punmpin or jack-o-lantern.


If you wish to farm Pumpkin, you can begin with just only a single pumpkin and grow as many as you want. What all you need to do is turn the pumpkin into four pumpkin seeds in the crafting screen. Notably, the seeds should be planted in the farmland located next to the water. Don’t forget to leave one empty dirt block for every seed. Your pumpkins will automatically begin growing on the blocks that you left empty.

Step 3: Search for an open space

Now, search for an open area that should be around three blocks wide and three blocks tall. The only reason why it requires a larger space is that because the golem might spawn trapped inside the space if opt to make it too close to the wall.

Before you start, make sure to chop off the tall grasses or flowers in the area as the could also avert the golem from spawning.

Step 4: Form a T shape using the iron blocks

Now, what you need to do is to put one iron block on the ground while the rest of the three blocks must be kept in a row on top of the first one, forming a ‘T’ shape.

Step 5: Place your pumpkin over the T

In the final step, you will have to put the pumpkin or the jack-o-lantern over the middle block. Once you are done with it, it will turn into an iron golem.
