What Are DIY Materials?

Use Them for DIY crafting!

Materials are the various items throughout the island, which are used to craft various tools and furniture. Crafting is a vital part of New Horizons, so you are going to need a lot of these to make the most of your time.

How do you find materials?

The quickest way to get materials is by hitting the various objects throughout town (trees and large rocks) with an axe (or shovel, if hitting a rock) to make them drop materials. These objects will give you up to 8 materials per day.

In addtion, you can also get materials like weeds by simply picking them up. Villagers will occassionally give you materials, and you may even find them by shooting down balloons with a slingshot.
