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.
