Our Orange Grove stencil is right on trend! Florals, fruit stencils and botanicals are everywhere and we really liking the citrus craze! We also created a Lemon Wall stencil, just in case you prefer lemons, please check it out! Finally, great wall stencil designs for kitchens! Of course, you can use this orange stencil in other rooms too, such as bath, bedroom and hallway. Perfect stencil for nurseries, too! Now with the help of our orange stencil and some acrylic or latex paint, your walls can be transformed into a serene orange grove. Unlike pricey citrus wallpaper, our reusable stencil offers you an opportunity to choose your own color combinations and to be creative.
While it takes an artist to draw a good stencil, stenciling itself is an easy painting technique that doesn’t require any artistic ability. As long as you can hold a brush or a roller, you’re pretty much good to stencil! This stencil design can be painted with a foam roller and/or stencil brushes, depending if yu want it in one color or multi-color. You can use darker acrylic color (such as Raw umber) to shade the leaves and the fruit to add extra dimension, or simply use flat colors without shading. It will look beautiful no matter what you choose.

You can stencil with acrylic or latex paint, stencil creams, fabric paint or glaze. Use a foam roller or stencil brush. Although our stencils do not require the use of spray adhesive, this pattern could benefit from it to help minimize paint seepage, especially if your walls have a slight texture to them. (Elmer's spray adhesive seems to be the best). Make sure you shake the can well and lightly mist (not drench) the stencil, and let it dry for a moment before positioning it on the wall. This step will prevent the adhesive residue transferring to the wall. You'll need to re-mist the stencil after a few repeats. Note: you will still need to hold the stencil in place with a few pieces of blue painters tape! Adhesive by itself is not enough to hold the stencil on the wall. Clean-up tip: Spray the stencil with Simple Green to help to remove adhesive residue. Please note that once you've used spray adhesive on your stencil, it will never really come off completely. That is why we personally prefer not to use adhesive, and instead use less paint on your roller or stencil brush.
IMPORTANT INFO ON STENCILING TEXTURED WALLS:
In general, it's possible to stencil over textured surfaces, however it depends on the roughness of your texture and your desired outcome.
Some textures are really rough, with huge "peaks and valleys" and, if this is your case, stenciling may not be an option. However, there are light to medium textures that are very suitable for stenciling.
With textures it is especially important that you put very little paint on your brush and always off-load it onto a paper towel. Use a rubbing/dabbing motion while stenciling and try not to force the paint under the edges of the stencil. You can also use a dense foam roller, but make sure that you off-load it onto some paper towels so that it is relatively dry. To avoid seepage, use very little paint, and don't press hard on the roller. Using spray adhesive can also help prevent seepage of paint under the stencils. We love Elmer's re-positionable spray adhesive but most re-positionable spray adhesives are fine. Always test the stencil on a disposable surface first (such as a piece of cardboard), or try stenciling a small area in a corner somewhere and immediately wipe the stenciled paint off the wall with a moist baby wipe. Also, it's good to remember that using high-contrast colors (like black over white) is much less forgiving than using colors that are similar to each other.
We find that it is not necessary to use spray adhesive with our stencils. However, if you want crisper edges or are stenciling with high contrasting colors, please use it (Elmer's spray adhesive seems to be the best). It is helpful for beginners to mist a stencil with spray adhesive just to make sure you get great results. Always use pieces of blue painters tape to secure your stencil in place.
You can create custom stenciled curtains, pillows and tablecloths with our stencils! When stenciling on fabric, stencil adhesive is very helpful. First, tape your ironed fabric to the surface so it doesn't move around while you stencil. Use stencil brushes, or roller, and add some textile medium (sold in craft stores) to your acrylic paint. You can also get a special fabric paint, but, frankly, good craft acrylics with a dollop of textile medium work just as well, and costs way less too! :) Let the stenciled image dry completely, 24 hours is best, then heat-set it by ironing the fabric for about 20 seconds (more or less) on a LOW setting through a piece of cloth. Heat-setting will cure the paint and prevent it from being washed off in the washing machine. Always experiment with a sample of your fabric first to ensure good results. We've stenciled on silk, cotton, linen and even sheer fabrics with great results. It's always better if your fabric doesn't have too much texture.

Absolutely love this stencil! I’ve never stenciled before and it was very easy to follow the instructions and I love the way it came out.
So freaking cute! Yes it's going to take a while if you want to do more than one color but I'm in love! The large size of the stencil is great for a wall. I'll be purchasing more in the future!
Even better than I expected. I love it. The instructions and extras are very appreciated. I can't wait until this weekend to use it. Thank you!
