Guide: How To Craft All Pumpkin DIY Recipes For Animal Crossing: New Horizons

With the arrival of October, a whole bunch of spooky pumpkin items are now available for Animal Crossing: New Horizons players to craft and collect.

These new seasonal items can be obtained from a variety of methods such as by crafting them yourself with pumpkins, or buying them from Nook’s Cranny. You can find a quick guide for growing pumpkins and finding the DIY recipes below:

Growing Pumpkins

  • Pumpkins can be grown from starts sold at Nook’s Cranny (280 bells each) or by Leif (140 bells each).
  • Pumpkins will take 4 days to become fully grown and ready for harvest. If they are watered every day, they may sometimes yield up to 3 pumpkins per start.
  • Pumpkins come in 4 colours: Orange, Yellow, White, and Green. Players will only know what colour they will get when the pumpkin plant is fully grown.
    • Only Orange pumpkins are required for DIY recipes, the other colours are exclusively for customization.
  • Pumpkin plants will continue to grow more pumpkins as long as they remain planted in the ground.

Pumpkin DIY Recipes

There are a total of 14 spooky DIY recipes that require pumpkins to craft. These DIY recipes can only be obtained from the following methods during October:

  • Talking to villagers while they are working on their workbench.
  • Talking to villagers and giving them candy on Halloween Night (They may also give furniture instead).
  • Talking to Jack and giving him lollipops on Halloween Night (Spooky Carriage, Spooky Wand recipes)

The spooky furniture items themselves also have a chance of being sold at Nook’s Cranny, where players can also buy candy to prepare for Halloween night. Only one spooky furniture item and one piece of candy can be purchased per day.

If you wish to craft all the spooky recipes, you will require around about 78 orange pumpkins (big thanks to GameWith and Animal Crossing World for compiling this list):
