You don’t have to celebrate Halloween to enjoy the scary side of things.
Go for pretty things like friendly ghosts and glowing pumpkins or dark, scary things like devious witches and creepy vibes…..
Anyway, I have some fun ACNH Halloween ideas for your island.
20. Haunted castle

Great start, this haunted castle is so cool!
Creative use of silos, custom slabs, fences and terraforming transforms the player’s home into a gothic vampire dream house.
Tom Nook would never have made it. ….
Whether you’re a witch, a vampire, a zombie or just an emo, this is a fantastic and creative idea to change the look of your island.
What better way for your villagers to play pranks?
19. Jack O’Lantern Room

Something nice for me, please!
Those who don’t want to be spooked can hunt for the scare in this charming pumpkin room in bright orange.
Venetian-style striped Halloween wallpaper brings a cheerful atmosphere to a room full of pumpkins.
It’s mostly filled with pumpkin-related items and orange decorations.
Call me Cinderella, because I just might jump on the pumpkin wagon!
18. Halloween Reed Pumpkin Patch
You can’t have Halloween without pumpkins.
And this is the best place to get them.
Choosing the perfect pumpkin to carve out is, in my humble opinion, one of the most fun parts of the party.
And this cute pumpkin patch gets bonus points for all the extra items besides the plants themselves. There’s a lantern, a table, stacked pumpkins, gourds, etc.
It’s a vibrant space, well designed without being so crazy that you can’t walk around it.
This could be your pumpkin patch.
17. Botanical potion shop for witches

Witches are a solid Halloween subculture, and for good reason.
They’re just one of the best parts of Halloween because they really add to it – just like that potion shop!
When was the last time you saw a ghost open a shop, huh?
Resembling an outdoor market, this creative building uses kiosks with bottles and cups filled with cool and bold sayings.
The kettle is hot and ready to prepare more reagents if needed, so don’t hesitate to make requests!
No love potions, thank you. It never works.
And I really hope the pile of bones is just a decoration and not, like, a drink gone bad.
16. narrow cemetery

Fortunately, the cemeteries in Animal Crossing: The new horizons are purely aesthetic and not functional.
But they make a great scary building around Halloween!
This particular idea of a cemetery is carefully laid out, with rows of graves, burning incense, and even a statue of the Mother or the Capitol Wolf.
Black flowers like roses, tulips and daisies help to keep it natural.
This doll is just annoying. I wonder if it’s haunted.
15. Spooky Island

This haunted island is a fantastic example of what a Halloween island can look like.
It’s very well placed, not bland, but empty enough to give an unsettling feeling.
A large grey pumpkin blocks the foreground, while statues watch over what looks like a dark and ominous castle.
Now it’s definitely a ghost.
And the iron and stone fence fits perfectly with the dark colors. Whoa, is anyone else cold?
14. Access to Barren Island

First impressions are important.
And this island is already starting to get spooky with this creative entry!
Through a maze of aisles, you’ll reach a frozen arch, pass a cart with glowing pumpkins, a table with a pumpkin-o-lantern, and many other details.
Lighted pumpkins give enough light in the dark to not get completely lost, but you still need to keep your eyes open.
Clearly, this project took a lot of work, between the custom design, the methodical collection of objects, and the DIY.
13. Haunted Hill House

Here’s another spooky outhouse, perfect for Halloween.
A stone staircase leads to two terraced heights where an eerie, obviously haunted house watches over the rest of the (terrified) island.
The darkness and rain make it even more fascinating!
Two stone statues guard the entrance… but whether it’s to keep people out or to keep something in, I have no idea.
If you decide to build something like this, don’t accuse me of being obsessed or anything.
12. Abandoned bridge

Be careful… You enter this abandoned bridge area at your own risk.
If the hardened bow and wrought iron don’t deter you, congratulations. You’re cool.
Where does the bridge go?
Who knows, but it could be cursed.
The black roses and tulips, as well as the quirky pumpkin objects such as the lantern and wagon, contribute to a sense of completeness and richness in the design.
Maybe it’s just a ghost that makes this place super creepy, but can you imagine this place on a foggy night?
11. Ghost Witch’s Kitchen

Have you ever heard of a kitchen witch?
It’s usually one of those things that has a great cattail vibe. Or maybe soft, muted colors.
Well, with a kitchen as scary as this one, any witch can be a kitchen witch!
Prepare macabrely beautiful desserts or just work on potions or alchemy.
With a brick oven and cooktop, there’s plenty of room to do multiple things at once.
And there’s also a good pile of wood to add to the fire. There is nothing worse than being very close to a good lover or caramelization and the heat goes out!
In the interest of food safety, you may want to remove the cobwebs. Yuck!
10. We’re watching you.

You know, um… I’m just saying.
The surprise baby is scary.
Dolls are scary, otherwise there wouldn’t be so many horror movies about them.
Yes, I know it’s based on the Momotarō mythos, and Nintendo was very nice. But if you really want a spooky ghost island, get as many fish surprises as you can, put them on the ground, and you’re done.
9. Halloween Market

Are you scared yet?
Well, here’s something lighter.
It’s a beautiful market building filled with gorgeous Halloween and fall colors. You can prepare for the season by buying fruit, stuffed animals or pumpkins.
These ghosts? Maybe. But it’s fun.
Make it an afternoon activity with your favorite residents because there is so much to see! And there’s nothing better on a cool fall day.
8. Scary display
Image source @rosieggirlgamer
After sunset, only the stars and the high mushroom clouds illuminate the terrifying spectacle.
Skeletons, hanging pumpkins and even the pumpkin car have been put together to look like a skeleton pulling a car, ready to take you for a ride.
How did he get there?
Maybe that was one of Blatter’s ideas. But his owl hands couldn’t pick up all those tiny bones.
They must have been ghosts.
In any case, I would stay away for fear of being cursed!
7. Halloween passageway

This structure is scary in a fun way, not scary.
A beautiful witch is ready to show the way through this corridor decorated with jack-o-lanterns, hay bales and other usual Halloween items.
One of the most interesting aspects of this build is that it’s not too simple, but also doesn’t involve so much DIY that it can’t be replicated.
Even if you don’t have certain things, you can trade them in.
For example, if you don’t have the pretty pumpkin on the right, replace it with a candle or a simple pumpkin!
The possibilities are endless.
6. Maize maze

Corn mazes are a classic Halloween celebration.
Corn mazes (or any maze, really!) are essential to a successful party, along with apple, pumpkin and costume contests.
It’s great, but it’s also super functional.
You can hold an IRL festival with your friends (if you have a Nintendo Online Card) and hide the prizes in a maze, for example.
Or, if you prefer a trick to a treat, maybe a lazy turnip!
Warning Image Source
If you like Stephen King or horror movies, this is the building for you.
Unlike a regular Halloween cemetery, this Pet Sematary-inspired location is a nod to the book and movie of the same name.
It is also very easy to reproduce.
With a few extra fossil skulls and a stone marker (the DIY for this is available in the Nook Terminal at the Resident Service), you can dive in and recreate the idea on your own island!
Add a shovel, a fence and flowers, and you’re done.
4. Haunted garden

Softly glowing lanterns and a few bright fruits are the only things that illuminate this enchanted black garden.
Purple and orange flowers enliven the Halloween space, and all kinds of fruit hang over a large pumpkin patch.
Your villagers will be happy to come and carve out a pumpkin, and in broad daylight.
3. Salon Sirova

If the spirits won’t come to you, you have to come to them.
This crystal ball and tarot set will make any kind of mystical entertainment in a witch’s parlor a pleasure.
Dried flowers, insect heads and candles create the (admittedly strange) atmosphere of this building.
Invite your friends over, sit around a round table and read palms, tell fortunes or just have fun with your ghost friends.
2. Spooky Secret Garden
Image source by @cezembre_acnh
One of the best parts about this gazebo is that it is a secret room.
Since this is the player’s house, the villagers won’t just come out and start singing, which some of them do in the square.
Don’t get me wrong, sometimes it’s fun…. but gardens are meant to be enjoyed (read: peaceful).
Enjoy a haunted garden at home by recreating this building.
Also try similar features like pumpkin painting, loose spider web and a card reading game.
The green lava lamp provides a nice green ambient light, and you can’t tell from the lamp that it doesn’t look like a suspiciously sticky water can.
1. Halloween Carnival
Image Source By Unknown
The soft, ominous creak, the sharp smell of the predicted frost, the cold wind…..
These are the things you’ll notice when you enter this obviously abandoned haunted fairground.
If a scary doll and a skeleton aren’t enough to make you nervous, then maybe an organic mannequin will.
Don’t suck the cotton candy. Because in this carnival of terror you will encounter scary clowns, not cute or funny ones.
If you design it yourself, you may want to add custom paths to match the style of your island!
Tip from the designer: A teacup can be found at the Nook Stop in the Residents Services section.
