An iron golem is a protective mob that will naturally spawn in any village with more than 15 villagers. You can also make your own iron golems with three blocks of iron and a pumpkin. Place the iron blocks in a ‘T’ formation, just like making a scarecrow. Bring the iron golem to life by placing a pumpkin on top of the iron blocks where the head should go.
