Make sure you are dragging the pumpkin into your helmet slot.

And note that you can only wear normal pumpkins; Jack'o'lanterns will not work.

I tried that and it did not work –  anthony Jul 19 '13 at 18:10
I just tried and it does work, so maybe try again and check everything? –  Steven Cunningham Jul 19 '13 at 18:16
That is the method to wear pumpkins. So I'm not sure what you are doing that it isnt working, can you post a screenshot of the pumpkin you are trying to wear? Also is this Minecraft-PC or a different platform. I am unsure how pumpkins work on pocket edition or 360. –  Rapitor Jul 19 '13 at 18:17
Ok, I will try that –  anthony Jul 19 '13 at 18:18
I agree with this answer, shouldnt be any different then putting on a helm. –  Paralytic Jul 19 '13 at 18:20

You can not be wearing a helmet when you try this. Obvious, but it might be what is wrong

Won't they switch out or am I mistaken? –  Timtech Nov 1 '13 at 22:21

  1. find a block above you.
  2. throw the pumpkin on that block.
  3. go under the block.
  4. destroy the block.
  5. the pumpkin will land on your head.
