Beginning December 11, players will notice heavy snow showers settling on the ground, and the snow will cover the grass, trees, and buildings. This marks a major change in the island’s atmosphere and will last for the entirety of winter. Moreover, a new seasonal crafting material called snowflakes will become available during this time.

How to catch snowflakes and unlock DIY Recipes to craft exclusive winter-themed items in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Snowflakes spawn at random and float in the air around the island, similar to previous materials like cherry blossom and maple leaves. Once you spot a snowflake, catching it is pretty straightforward. It requires equipping and swinging your bug net. However, it is important to note that if you swing and miss twice, the snowflake will fade away, and you will have to find another one.

The good news is there will be plenty floating around, and finding one should be a common occurrence while it’s snowing on your island. Besides that, snowflakes will continue to spawn for the rest of winter until February 24. Not only is there plenty of time to collect these materials, but they aren’t limited to a certain amount per day as well.

Being seasonal materials, snowflakes fulfill the purpose of crafting several limited-time items. However, after collecting some snowflakes, one must find and learn the corresponding DIY recipes first to craft them.

Like other seasonal items, you can potentially unlock different snowflake DIY recipes by shooting down balloon presents during the winter months. These balloon presents can often be seen floating across the island’s sky. Those who have played the game a lot and have already received plentiful DIY recipes are more likely to find a seasonal one.
