Getting and Sharing Custom Designs in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

There are two methods to get designs from the web onto your island. Please be careful that designs you upload are marked with a little “no edit” icon. It means that you do not have the ability to edit them.

Method 1: QR Code

If you have an excellent design from New Leaf which you want to import into New Horizons, all you need to do is the old design’s QR code. Alternatively, there are websites that will allow you to make your masterpiece on your browser or upload any photo to convert into a custom design which explains how memes are making their ways on to villagers’ walls with shocking accuracy. Be careful, these only work for normal designs. However, excellence will still flow forth.
