Animal Crossing New Horizons: How to Get Shells & All Shell DIY Recipes

One of the various crafting materials you can find lying around during your island getaway are the shells that litter the beach every day. From sand dollars to venus combs, each can be picked up and utilized in DIY crafting recipes for a complete furniture set or sold for a profit. Here’s where to get shells and all shell DIY Recipes and what you can make with them in Animal Crossing New Horizons.

Animal Crossing New Horizons Shell Set DIY Recipes

Getting Shells in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Shells randomly spawn across your shoreline throughout the day at a pretty consistent pace, so getting enough to craft to your heart’s content shouldn’t be much of a chore.

Every morning you should have a good selection of a dozen or so shells that have spawned, plus every few minutes a new shell can spawn on one of your beaches.

Perfectly gathered while fishing, gathering bait, or conducting any other business by the shoreline, this can easily be completed while multitasking other activities.

Getting Shell DIY Recipes

Much like other furniture and item sets, the shell set comes via random chance from the various methods we’ve outlined in our guide previously.

Shooting down balloons with your Slingshot and hoping for a crafting card, finding them in your daily “message in a bottle” found on the shoreline, and checking in with your villagers regularly to find them at their crafting benches will be the quickest way to complete this set—making sure to hit all the daily spots.
