Bringing Fall into the Island on Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Players can take tons of inspiration from the weather outside for the designs of their Animal Crossing Island. They can incorporate a lot of orange fall leaves that can have integration in unique places, including roads. Players can find tons of custom designs featuring leaves on asphalt roads that look beautiful. Plus, they can also add stone pathways as sidewalks to create a city during the months of September and October.

Plus, fans also create natural walkways using dirt patterns that look nice as well. With some orange and yellow accents added to the tiles, the path will look perfect in the gloomy weather. Along with that, they can also add dead leaves around the trees as well. During the season, fans can notice these leaves falling down all the time. So it’s nice to add that element to the Island and enhance the look a bit. Plus, they can add a red-leaf pile on top of it to give it a three-dimensional element as well.
