How to Get Shell Furniture DIY Recipes

There are a few different ways you can find and get new Shell Furniture DIY Crafting Recipes in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, but unfortunately most of them are completely random and rely on good luck.

Flying Balloon Presents

All Balloon Presents (except for event balloons, like during Bunny Day) flying in the sky over your island have a chance of dropping a Shell Furniture DIY Crafting recipe, among many other items! There’s no way to control what you’ll get, so just keep shooting them down until you get lucky.

Beach Message Bottles

A new Message Bottle item can usually be found on your island’s beach once per day and sometimes on mystery islands with Nook Miles Tickets. These bottles always have a chance of containing an Shell Furniture DIY Crafting recipe!

Villagers Crafting in Houses

Sometimes you can discover your villagers crafting at the workbench inside their houses! If you spot this, be sure to speak to them and learn the DIY Crafting recipe for whatever new item they’re working on. It’s possible for this to be a Shell Furniture item.


If you have found more beach or shell related items that can crafted using Shells, please let us know with a screenshot in the comments below! Thanks to Dizzy Bone and Thunder for contributing photos to this guide.

I’m surprised there isn’t also a wallpaper.

There’s a sea view wallpaper that I found. It’s animated as well.
