Scavenger Hunt: Juicy Apples

Everyone loves a scavenger hunt. There’s something very exciting about seeking out treasures based on a theme, or coming up with unique examples of objects from a single idea. In September, themes of back to school and the coming fall harvest are everywhere, so the Oh Canada Team has been seeking out some beautiful and delicious examples of apples around the web.

Stuff by Steph discovered a whole orchard of apples, and recommends visiting the Applewood Farm Winery the next time you’re in the Southern Ontario area. Picking your own fresh apples is a great way to spend the day with the family, and get some wholesome treats at the same time!

Steph also recommends some cute apple quilting patterns that are great for all kinds of crafts: Applique Apples and Apple Petroglyph.

Dark Ride searched high and low and curated a wonderful collection of apple goodies called Apple in My Eye, with a great combination of reds and golden browns.

Joanniel discovered a fantastic craft tutorial, that shows you how to create an adorable apple decoration from a used paperback book. This is a great example of how beautiful upcycled art can be, and you don’t have to be a mixed media expert to try it out!

Apples always make great subjects for painting and photography. They have a lovely shape that catches the light, and the colors are always bright and beautiful. bstudio discovered this unique art photograph of cleverly stacked apple slices. All it needs is a bit of caramel sauce!
