For Animal Crossing New Horizons players, autumn is the harvest season and events will also be held. In November, there is an event for crafters. You can look forward to adding unique items to your house, which will make your home looks warmer in the cold autumn. Just like the Cherry Blossom Petal event in spring, you can collect delicate pink petals to decorate your home. In the Maple Leaf event, you can collect leaves and recipes, which you need to complete within a week, so in case you miss the time, it is best to mark on the calendar.
From November 12th to 26th, if you are in the northern hemisphere, you will be able to see maple leaves flying in the air. During this time, you can collect as many leaves as possible and pay attention to more recipes to make DIY items. You may also need to collect acorns and pine cones, which you can also obtain by shaking trees on your island.
Collecting maple leaves is very simple. You can equip your net at any time, just grab them when the leaves fall to the ground. And there are balloons with DIY recipe cards in the sky, you need to shoot them down with a slingshot.
