Animal Crossing New Horizons has now entered the month of September which means there’s a batch of new bugs and fish to catch. However, with the arrival of autumn, there are new DIY recipes that require acorns and pine cones to craft. And, to help you craft these exclusive items, here you’ll discover how to get acorns and pine cones in Animal Crossing New Horizons.
For those who love to be reminded of politics every second of their life, you can now get Joe Biden campaign signs in Animal Crossing New Horizons. These aren’t official and therefore not from Nintendo, but they’re available for those who no longer want their island to be an escape from the terrible reality that is 2020.
The signs are very easy to ignore and most likely won’t be seen by most people, so everyone else can simply focus on getting acorns and pine cones.
How to get acorns in Animal Crossing New Horizons
You get acorns in Animal Crossing New Horizons by shaking normal hardwood trees.
Acorns won’t always drop from hardwood trees as branches will more often fall to the ground, but this is how you get them in Animal Crossing New Horizons.
Just keep shaking until they fall and then pick it up to add to your inventory.
Acorns will be present in Animal Crossing New Horizons during September, October, and November for the North, meanwhile the South gets them in March, April, and May.
Once you have the necessary amount, you can then craft items such as an acorn pochette, traditional balancing toy, and tree’s bounty arch.
How to get pine cones in Animal Crossing New Horizons
You get pine cones in Animal Crossing New Horizons by shaking cedar trees.

What you can craft is basically a perfect catalogue for those who love nature.
Similar to acorns, pine cones only appear in the North of Animal Crossing New Horizons between September and November, and March and May for the South.
