Craft Items Using Beach Shells

While selling these shells on your beach at Nook’s Cranny can be lucrative in your early days of island life when scrounging up Bells, we’d recommend hanging onto some in your house storage as well.

That’s because almost every type of shell can be also be used to craft Shell and beach themed items using DIY Crafting!

But wait, there’s more! Exclusively during the Summer season, another new shell type called Summer Shells can appear on your beach with their own set of unique items to craft.
