Animal Crossing: New Horizons - All the Mermaid DIY recipes

The new July Animal Crossing: New Horizons update adds Scallops and Pascal into the mix, which means you can now start crafting Mermaid recipes.

It's time to unleash your inner Ariel and get crafting some new Mermaid DIY recipes in the new July update. Pascal is the newest vendor on your island, and he'll randomly appear in the water when you find a Scallop in the hope of exchanging it for Mermaid DIY recipes.

There are quite a few recipes to collect over the next few weeks, which you can check out below. To swim and dive in the ocean, you'll need a wetsuit, which you can pick up from Nook's Cranny for 3000 Bells.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons - How to find Pascal

There are a bunch of new Mermaid DIY recipes to find with the new update and you'll be able to create the likes of Mermaid dressers and chairs. You'll need to find Scallops in the ocean by swimming and diving. You can check out our Sea Creature guide here for tips on how to find Scallops.

Once you've found some Scallops, Pascal, a friendly little otter, will pop up and ask you if he can have your Scallop and in return, he'll give you a Mermaid DIY recipe. Pascal won't appear every time you catch a Scallop - that would be too easy - but just hang on to them and keep searching for them until he reappears.

It's not clear if he appears only once a day or once a week, but he will reappear eventually. There's also a chance he'll give you a Pearl, so hold on to it as you'll need it to craft your new Mermaid items.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons - All Mermaid DIY items

There's a bunch of cool mermaid-themed items available to collect from Pascal, though you'll need the likes of Giant Clams, Sand Dollars and Iron Nuggets alongside Pearls to do so. There are also Mermaid dresses, shoes and a tiara you can obtain from Pascal, too.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons - How to find Pearls

Pearls you can find by diving and looking for Sea Creatures but they are pretty rare. Unlike Pearl Oysters, Pearls can't be donated to Blathers though they can be sold for a whopping 10,000 Bells each, though you'd do well to hold on to them to build all your new Mermaid furniture and items.

The rest of the materials you'll need are fairly easy to find along the beach and on your island.

We'll be updating this list with any more recipes we find, so check back soon. In the meantime, you can check out our July update guide here, as well as where to find every Sea Creature, Fish and Bug in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
