Orange peel texture on small drywall repairs.

I was wondering if anyone knew of a easy way to texture small drywall repairs. I have numerous areas that have been patched that are smooth and standout because the rest of the wall is textured with a light orange peel finsh. I know that originally it was sprayed with a air compressor and hopper. Since I own neither I was looking for a easy solution.

There are spray paint can sized cans of texture available. they cost 10 to 15 dollars (us) each. I have found them at ACE Hardware, some hardware/lumber stores, and at most builders suppliers. Be advised, they are a mess. The cans shoot out the texture much like a hopper. Don C.
