Materials: Choose a variety of preserved and dried flowers.  Combine different textures, colors, shapes and styles to achieve this look; like pampas, wheat, lavender, preserved roses, etc. You will also need several sprays of artificial greenery, tape (floral tape or duct tape), shears, and ribbon

Tip - Prepare the rose heads for the bouquet prior to getting started on
this project by attaching the preserved rose heads to stems.

Step 1: Begin your bouquet by designing in a clockwise fashion, so that you don't break your dried stems.  Start with the flowers you want in the middle and work outwards.

Step 2: Continue to add small bundles of similar stems to the bouquet as you work in a circle around the center.

Step 6: Finish with ribbon so the tape isn't visible.  Tightly wrap the bouquet stems with and tuck the ribbon end into the wrap, secure with a pin or hot glue to keep it in place.
