There are 17 different new furniture recipes you can make with your newly harvested pumpkins. From Jack O’lanterns to pumpkin feast tables, the Spooky set has everything to get your island Halloween ready! So make sure to follow our furniture guide to get your hands on all of them.
Buy From Nook’s Cranny
The easiest way to get the new Spooky furniture is to buy it directly from Nook’s Cranny. Your store will need to be in its second upgraded version if you haven’t reached that yet be sure to read our guide here.
Many of the Spooky Set and seasonal items can be found for sale throughout the month of October at Nook’s Cranny. It’s a handy alternative to crafting, but since you can only buy one item every day it’s going to take some time. Although nothing is really as satisfying as having your own DIY recipe. What if I need two Spooky arches for my haunted pumpkin patch??
How To Get Spooky DIY Recipes
Like most of the other DIY recipes, you’ll be able to get it as gifts from villagers crafting in their homes. Throughout all of October, the animals should be busy crafting Spooky Furniture. These recipes craft the same items that are purchasable from Nook’s Cranny — with one exception for the Spooky Fence item since fence items cannot be bought. That means you can only get the Spooky Fence from crafting. For those of you that are worried, take note that the Spooky Set DIY Crafting Recipes are not specific to villager personalities.
Other ways to get the DIY recipes is to pop the balloon presents drifting over the island. As well as to find message bottles along the beach once a day.
