New characters? Farming? Cooking? Who cares!! The Animal Crossing: New Horizons update adds customisable fences, and you're presumably on this page because you're excited about it, too.

But how do you customise a fence, exactly? The process is quite simple.

Animal Crossing Fences Guide

Step One: Grab your fence!

Grab the fence you want to customise - up to 100 at once. Fun fact: you use the same number of customisation kits each time, regardless of how many you customise - as long as it's all the same selection! Save kits and customise as many as you can at once.

Step Two: Take it to a DIY table!

If you don't have one in your house or on your island, you can use the one in the Resident Services building, or any that may be in your neighbours' homes.

Step Three: Use materials to change the colour!

Simply use customisation kits to change the colors of many of the fence types available! Unfortunately, multi-coloured fences are not an option: placing two pieces of fencing next to each other that are not the same colour will not connect. Dang.

You'll be able to customise fences as soon as you buy them, including the ones that you already have in your town! Below is a complete list of all fences and customisations now available with the 2.0 update:
