Start with cutting a piece of carton in a round shape. Glue on both sides in a circle the dried Aspidistra leafs, one side with only the tophalf and on the other side only the bottom parts including the stems. Be sure all the stems in the same direction (from the centre).
Wire the stems together with different kind of wires and use a few different colors.
Finishing touch with pearl-pins at all stem-ends.
Wire the dried Equisetum and fold them all in the same 'Z'-shape.
Put them all in the same direction through the centre of the basis, the wires will be part of the 'holder'.
Use the twigs to make the vertical circle in the bouquet, weave them through the vertical Equisetum.
Start glueing the different types of Vanda flowers in the middle part of the bouquet.
Finish with some berries to make it complete.
Fold a cone from the carton and glue the cone to the bottom side of the bouquet.
Tape the cone with doublesided tape.
Stick the petals of the Dianthus to the cone, use two or three colors for a better result.
Finish the whole by spraying the flowers (both sides) with Floralife Finishing Touch Spray to keep the bouquet fresh for days.
