Animal Crossing: New Horizons is the perfect place to cultivate your festive feelings as the holiday season approaches. The possibilities for transforming your island from an autumnal haven into a festive treat are endless, whether you're starting from scratch or simply adding a wintery twist to some of your favorite locations. Here are a few suggestions to make it feel like Christmas could be every day for Tom Nook and his friends.
Look for ornaments to decorate your home.
The first step in putting together any Christmas theme is to purchase ACNH items, and when the holiday season comes to Animal Crossing: New Horizons, the first thing you'll want to do is go out and purchase some decorations. If you see a Cedar tree decked out in fairy lights, shake it up and collect the red, blue, and gold ornaments that fall to the ground. These unique crafting materials are only available for a limited time, so take advantage of this opportunity whenever you see one.
Gather a collection of festive do-it-yourself recipes.
You'll need some DIY recipes to get your grotto started after you've gathered all of your ornaments. Here are some ideas to get you started. The things you're looking for can be found in all the usual places: given as gifts by villagers, washed up in bottles on the beach, or floating by in balloons. Play throughout the holiday season to collect as many ornaments as you can, and get a head start by obtaining Isabelle's Ornament Wreath recipe to use as a template.
Get to work on your project!
You'll need to find more than a dozen DIY recipes, so once you've found them all (and gathered all of the ornaments you'll need), it's time to get to work on your holiday crafts. There is no Christmas scene that is complete without a tree, so why not start with a Big Festive Tree, or if you're creating an indoor scene, pick up a tabletop festive tree instead?
