All Cherry Blossom DIY Recipes In Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Here are all 14 cherry blossom recipes you can get during the brief cherry blossom season in New Horizons.


As the seasons change in real life, Animal Crossing: New Horizons' seasons change, too. There are a variety of seasonal events and items, including seasonal DIY recipes you can only get during the right time of year. The beginning of April--or October in the Southern Hemisphere--is Animal Crossing's cherry blossom season, and just like in real life, it's unfortunately very brief.

Cherry blossom season runs from April 1 to 10 in the Northern Hemisphere and October 1 to 10 in the Southern Hemisphere. During cherry blossom season, all hardwood trees (not fruit or cedar trees) bloom pink, and cherry blossoms fall around you. You can catch these cherry blossoms with any net to use them in a variety of cherry blossom-themed DIY recipes, all of which you can get from balloons, message bottles, or villagers. They are listed below.

All Cherry Blossom DIY Recipes

  • Cherry-blossom umbrella
  • Cherry-blossom pochette
  • Cherry-blossom wand
  • Cherry-blossom-trees wall

Each of these recipes will appear in your DIY recipes list under the "seasonal" tab, and each of them has a pink background aside from the cherry-blossom pond stone, which has a gray background and is sorted with stone DIYs.

The best way to get cherry blossom recipes is by farming regular balloons; you can see our full balloon guide for more details. Note that while cherry blossom season and Bunny Day overlap in the Northern Hemisphere, all Bunny Day-related balloons spawn on top of the regular ones--in other words, they aren't replacing the regular red, yellow, green, and blue balloons that can contain cherry blossom DIY recipes.
