Even more brand new autumn themed items and recipes are here to enjoy in Animal Crossing: New Horizons for the Northern Hemisphere starting today, and they won’t be here for long this time!
Beginning today, special Maple Leaf materials will start falling down from the sky across your island for you to catch and enjoy. Just run around until you spot a large orange leaf floating in the air, take out your Net tool, and swing away!
Available from November 16th to 26th in the Northern Hemisphere, these limited time Maple Leaf crafting materials can be collected and used to craft 9 new gorgeous fall themed items. Maple Leaves are remarkedly similar to the Cherry Blossom Petals found during the Spring in the way you can obtain them and the length of time you can find them.
During this time, there will also be smaller and much more dull leaves floating in the air everywhere to celebrate the season, but these shouldn’t be confused with the proper large orange Maple Leaves! You can’t catch those small ones seen more commonly.
With Maple Leaves being available for just 10 days, we can’t help but feel a bit nostalgic for the early days of Animal Crossing: New Horizons back in April when we were all desperately hunting down Cherry Blossom items! At least there won’t be egg balloons polluting the sky this time though.
Just as with other seasonal materials, you’ll need to shoot down balloon presents from your island’s sky to get the new Maple Leaf DIY Crafting recipes for making the latest items. You can also get the Red-Leaf Pile recipe from Isabelle during her morning announcements near the beginning of Maple Leaf season.
Maple Leaf Recipes & Items

Maple Leaves mark the second set of new seasonal content for Animal Crossing: New Horizons during November for islands in the Northern Hemisphere, coming after Mushrooms were introduced at the start of this month. The five different Mushrooms materials remain available until the end of November, so you still have time to get those if you haven’t already.
And interestingly, two of the Acorn & Pine Cone recipes first available back in September actually make use of the Maple Leaf material. If you unlocked the Tree’s Bounty Arch and Tree’s Bounty Big Tree crafting recipes previously, you can finally craft them using Maple Leaves now!
Between the Maple Leaves, Mushrooms, Acorns, and Pine Cones all being available at once right now, it’s a great time to jump back into Animal Crossing: New Horizons and collect all of the fall themed items if you haven’t already. Plus, the highly anticipated November Winter Update should be right around the corner!
Let us know in the comments below how your progress is coming along on collecting all of these autumn exclusive materials and items! Are you ready for the November update at last?
