What Can You Use Acorns and Pine Cones For?

They can be used to craft seasonal items such as furniture or accessories. Once you have the recipe for a specific item, all you need to do is collect enough seasonal materials to make it and head to your workbench. Once you're there, if you have enough materials, you should be able to find the recipe under the "craftable" label.
