How To Get Spooky Set Items & DIY Crafting Recipes

There are three different ways to get Spooky Set furniture and items in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and the method can depend on the particular item! We’ve included specific information under each item in our full list later in this guide, but you can find more details on the various methods below.

Buy Spooky Set Items From Nook’s Cranny During October

Many of the Spooky Set items can also be found for sale in the upgraded second version of Nook’s Cranny as seasonal items throughout the month of October. That’s a handy alternative to crafting, but it could take some time to find the right item you’re looking for in the store.

Here’s a comprehensive list of all the Spooky Set items you can buy in Nook’s Cranny during October, with photos included in our full list of every item later in this guide:

  • Spooky Arch
  • Spooky Candy Set
  • Spooky Chair
  • Spooky Lantern
  • Spooky Lantern Set
  • Spooky Scarecrow
  • Spooky Standing Lamp
  • Spooky Table
  • Spooky Tower

Get Spooky Set DIY Crafting Recipes From Villagers, Balloons, Bottles

Besides purchasing Spooky Set items directly from Nook’s Cranny in October, you can also get Spooky Set DIY Crafting Recipes from villagers crafting in their homes, balloon presents in the sky, and message bottles on the beach.

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.

From our research and contributors in the comments, we can confirm that the Spooky Set DIY Crafting Recipes are not specific to villager personalities.

Get Exclusive Items During Halloween Night Event On October 31st

In addition to the Spooky Set items covered in the two sections above that can be obtained from Nook’s Cranny and villagers found crafting, there is an extra set of Spooky Set items that can only be earned during the Halloween Night event held on October 31st starting at 5PM.

After having received all of the exclusive items above, villagers will give you the other Spooky Set items and recipes that can be obtained from Nook’s Cranny and villagers crafting in their homes outside of October 31st.

  • Spooky Wand

How To Customize Spooky Set Items With Pumpkins

Orange Pumpkins are by far the most common type of pumpkin and are used to craft Spooky Set items for the first time. However, after having been crafted, most Spooky Set furniture items can be customized further into another color by using a DIY Workbench.

By using Yellow, White, and Green Pumpkins at a DIY Workbench, you can change the color of these items. These types of pumpkins are produced more rarely than Orange Pumpkins from farming Pumpkin Starts though.

How To Get Pumpkin Crafting Materials

To craft the Spooky Set of furniture and items, you need to grow and collect the Pumpkins required as crafting materials. You can purchase Pumpkin Starts to begin growing these new vegetables from Leif year-round, or from Nook’s Cranny during the month of October.

Once you have some Pumpkin Starts, you can begin farming by planting them in the ground somewhere on your island and water them every day to produce the best harvest after they finish growing. For more on how to grow and harvest Pumpkins, check out our complete farming guide here.

There are four different types of Pumpkins to grow, harvest, and use as crafting materials in Animal Crossing: New Horizons — Orange, Yellow, White, and Green.

Orange Pumpkin
Yellow Pumpkin
White Pumpkin
Green Pumpkin
