You can create custom designs using the Custom Designs app on your NookPhone. This app is available from the start of the game.
The design will look better if you specifically create it for an item: is it for a shirt, or face paint?
You can preview what it looks like on the specific item by selecting Swap Preview on the toolbar.
If you use the Custom Design Pro Editor, you will select a type of clothing to create a design for.
*Floor preview added on the ver 1.4.0 update.
Use the available tools on the editor to start creating your design!
For the first time in the Animal Crossing series, you can wear a custom design as face paint. The design's canvas will be distributed to the character's forehead and cheeks.
You can even do facial features such as eyebrows, beauty marks, and freckles.
How to Use and Erase Face Paint
You can put your designs on display as a painting or put it over a mannequin for others to see!
You can display your designs on the ground, which can be used as a ground pattern, or even use it as a path after unlocking the Island Designer app.
Inside your house, you can spread it in the room as a flooring or lay it down as a tile mat.
On the walls of your house, you can spread your design as a wallpaper, or you can display it on a canvas or on a hanger as a shirt.
You can share custom designs online after unlocking the Able Sisters tailor shop.
You can also save other players' custom designs, as well as designs from previous Animal Crossing games by scanning QR codes. Check out our guide to learn more.
