I recently started a (very productive) pumpkin farm, and I already have 2 stacks of pumpkins. I've replaced all the torches in my mine with Jack-o-lanterns, put Jack-o-lanterns all over my house and i have decorative pumpkins everywhere, but I have a huge surplus and no ideas on what to use it for.

You could make a large pumpkin-shaped pumpkin house made outta pumpkins?

Someone I know used the jack-o-lanterns to decorate underwater... you could do something like that if you have a large lake or the like? Possibly make an underwater base, with a path of jack-o-lanterns to it?

(btw, if you're on v1.8 of minecraft you won't find snow biomes)

I started this world in 1.9pre5, so I should find a snow biome eventually....
I like the idea about the underwater house!

The Jack-O-Lanterns makes for some great pavement for highways between your bases. It doesn't stand out that much and since it's illuminated it's easy to find the road.

Theres not much to do. Its far to ugly to be used as a building material as glowstone is a much nicer equivalent. And you could always just not harvest the pumpkins :/

Place a Jack'o lantern whenever you kill a mob.
It ends up looking really cool and you realize how much you kill mobs
