1. Coco Excavation

Design By: ChaztheWeasel on Twitter

It's a really creative pattern of coco's excavation site. If you didn't know coco is actually based upon a gyroid which is this kind of creepy item that gets buried with the dead and this pattern works really well. It may remind you of looney tunes, you know where like they'd fall through something and their silhouette be stuck there. It's just such a creative pattern, so definitely a really cool one to start us off.

2. Abandoned Tracks

Designed By: u/xSeraiX on Reddit

Creator’s ID: MA-4013-2434-7459

Thanks to Crossing Channel found this ACNH custom design on reddit and it's great. This is a old train track pattern and I love seeing people do lots of different kind of train tracks on railroads on their islands. I've seen some really cool train stations that always blow my mind just because of how cool they look. If you love to visit old and abandoned places, having one of these in your Animal Crossing island would be really great.

3. GameCube Dirt

Designed By: Denim2-mori on Twitter

Creator’s ID: MA-6647-9230-4716

This one is made by one of the popular creators Denim2-mori, who actually created the very famous custom pathway called the path that you may have heard about, but one of their lesser known designs is these two here. These are dirt patches that are themed after Animal Crossing GameCube, they're inspired from that and they look so cool with some custom patterns. They don't blend too well into the island but these ones work really neatly. They look so great, they just blend perfectly with the grass. Having such a custom design in Animal Crossing New Horizons is really great.

4. GameCube Station

Designed By: Iltacat on Tumblr

Creator’s ID: MA-9255-9699-8531

Speaking of Animal Crossing on the gamecube, we have these really great and creative ones that are themed after Animal Crossing on the GameCube's train station. Not only that but we have the train tracks at the back there and we also have the cobblestone pathway that you would get off onto and finally to add the cherry on the cake. There are also flowers from Animal Crossing on the gamecube. So if you loved that game, definitely get these patterns, they would work so well on your island. The use of the fences are great as well to really make it work and sell you on it, it's just so great and this really shows how creative Animal Crossing players have been with Animal Crossing New Horizons.

5. Beachy Path

Designed By: maasuKeOO1 on Twitter

Creator’s ID: MA-9921-6060-9072

This is kind of a more beachy type path design, it's really neat, it has kind of a lot going on. There's some stones, some little poles and a bunch of really cool stuff. If you don't know what to do with your beach maybe you could put pathways down like this on it. It does take up a lot of space but at the same time it looks really cool. It's just so neat to see.

6. Drain & Stall Covers 

Designed By: atsumori_tof on Twitter

Creator’s ID: MA-7769-4996-1568

This one actually features four different patterns by one of my other favorite designers for Animal Crossing New Horizons. First of all, they have the storm drain which is really cool. You can use this one on your island and you can get other little pieces that kind of extend it and work really well. The other three are actually things that you can use on top of the stool item to make your own marketplaces and they just work so well. 

7. Custom Bridge

Design By: chamomile-crossing on Tumblr

Creator’s ID: MA-8394-0449-6412

This custom design highlights the creativity of Animal Crossing players extremely well. This is a bridge that is made over cliffs. As you will know you cannot make a bridge going over two cliffs, it would be kind of neat if you could do that in game and have your own sort of bridge going over. But since you can't, players have had to be creative and make their own and this one works really well. It also doesn't look like it's too many patterns. So that's definitely really cool and they're using the fences here to make it blend in even more and I think they've done a really great job. This is definitely quite an ambitious one and a definitely an ambitious idea. But it's good to see that it's paid off so much because it just looks absolutely fantastic. 

8. Witchy Path

Design By: 13_31zzz on Twitter

Creator’s ID: MA-9921-6060-9072

This is another variant of the custom design path. All of these are just so wonderful. It's kind of witchy and a lot of you have islands that are kind of themed that way. This one has little pumpkins going around the path, dark purple flowers, orange flowers and mushrooms. It looks really great. If you want to make your island stand out a bit more, custom patterns are the way to go because they can be unique to anyone and the way you style your island with them can be completely unique. So that's really cool and these are just so great. 

9. Farming Patterns

Design By: nanase__game on Twitter

Creator’s ID: MA-4013-2434-7459

We have these really great farming inspired patterns. We have three patterns here, we have the one that goes on top of the stall, we have the crops that go on the floor and we also have the fertilizer bag. So the fertilizer bag is a pillow that's been customized which is really creative, that works well. But my personal favorite are the actual crops and here is a tip for you with those crops.

Instead of just placing them flat on the ground, what you should do is you should overlay them on top of the dirt pathways, you have two, you have the light dirt pathway and the dark dirt pathway, if you overlay these patterns on top of those, they'll blend in much nicely, it'll just look great. Overlay the patterns on top of a pathway like the dirt pathway because otherwise the edges will be jagged and it will cut off abruptly.
