Is anyone making Hydrangea wreaths?

I was wondering if anyone was making these or any other things with hydrangeas..

I think the wreaths are so beautiful.

I've made wreaths with hydrangeas, and found it's easier to attach them to the base when they're fresh, and let them dry on the wreath.

Thanks sylky00, I found that out too...
I was wondering if theres something you could spray on them so they won't fall apart so much??
I've tried hair spray, clear paint, and these just make them more brittle, I was wanting something to make them stay pliable so they won't shed so much... linda

I really don't think such a product exists. The only alternative is glycerin-preserving, but then they have to be artificially colored, which I try to avoid. Maybe a cooler room temp. would help.
