December 21, 2012

orchid stencilJust Add Ice Orchids make wonderful gifts for all occasions. According to the results of our recent survey, about 44% of our customers have given or received Just Add Ice Orchids as gifts. Birthdays are the top occasion for giving orchids, with major holidays such as Christmas coming in second.

With Christmas just around the corner, it is time to plan the perfect gift for your family members, relatives, and friends. Giving them Just Add Ice Orchids is a great way to share your passion with them and introduce them to the exciting world of orchid growing. Instead of giving everyone the same orchid gift, you can make them feel special with a touch of personalization. One great way to personalize an orchid gift is to create a stencil on its pot.

Here are instructions on how to stencil an orchid pot:

  • Gather all the necessary tools and supplies, which include a ceramic orchid pot, ceramic paint, flat brush, and vinyl stencils.
  • Clean the ceramic pot and read the instructions on the paint container.
  • Wait for the pot to dry before applying the stencil that you have previously created or purchased.
  • Since the pot is not flat, the stencil will be a little wrinkled. Just make sure that the stencil is flat.
  • The painting should be done in a tapping motion, not brushing up and down or side to side.
  • To avoid painting outside the stencil, apply some blue tape around its edges.
  • After you have finished painting, remove the stencil and let the paint dry for one hour.
  • Then, bake the ceramic pot at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
