Some items in Animal Crossing can be placed in such a way that they appear as something else. This summer grass variant when placed on the floor has a three-dimensional appearance, thus making it look like a ledge on the island. It does require further decoration, like trees, bushes, and fences, to create the illusion.

Step Illusions

Similar to the previous idea, you can re-create the appearance of steps using the floor decoration below. This can be used to enhance a floor path. Alternatively, the stone variant of this item creates the illusion of steps when properly covered with nature and complementary structures.

In the video, NintenTalk utilizes the stone arches to give a more ancient and rugged feel to the island. The land is further decorated with bamboo trees and shrubbery to give the illusion that one is moving down a tunnel.

With new updates from Nintendo, there are always new decorations and furniture options. These are some of the unique ways in which you can use these items.
