Animal Crossing: New Horizons' festive season is finally here, and it brings a bunch of new DIY recipes for you to collect and craft, too. These festive DIY recipes mainly require ornaments to put together that take the visual form of decorative baubles, and they'll give you plenty of items to make your island feel ready for Christmas.
In this guide, we explain how to get New Horizon's festive DIY recipes and list all the recipes up for grabs.
How to Get Festive DIY Recipes in New Horizons
The festive season in Animal Crossing: New Horizons runs from December 15th to January 16th across both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. During this time, you'll be able to gather ornaments and festive DIY recipes!
All festive DIY recipes will be found by shooting balloons with your Slingshot, or in washed up bottles on the beach if you're lucky. The only exception is the Ornament Wreath DIY, which is given to you by Isabelle during a morning announcement whenever you first log in to New Horizons during the festive season.
To craft these festive DIY's, you'll need ornaments. Ornaments come in red, blue, and gold. All types of ornament can be acquired by shaking the festive-looking Pine Trees around your island. If the tree is lit up with decorative lighting, then that's where you'll find these crafting materials! Additionally, unlike when you may have been collecting Acorns and Pine Cones during autumn, these festive trees will not drop any resources such as branches; they will only drop ornaments.
