I gathered a bunch of mistletoe to put ribbon on and give away, but it's starting to wilt. What do I need to do to keep it looking fresh?

Thanks!

From what I know about mistletoe, it's an epiphyte, right, sometimes called an air plant? I would treat it like my orchids, keep it covered in a plastic container with lots of humidity ( a couple sprays of water should do it, then keep the lid on until you are ready.)
