In the crafting menu, you should see a crafting area that is made up of a 3×3 crafting grid. To make pumpkin seeds, place 1 pumpkin in the 3×3 crafting grid.

When making pumpkin seeds, it is important that the pumpkin is placed in the exact pattern as the image below. In the first row, there should be 1 pumpkin placed in the first box. This is the Minecraft crafting recipe for pumpkin seeds.
