Researched Instructions from E-how.com
Special Care Instructions If preserving for indoors or outdoors :  In order to maintain a longer fresh look, simply spritz with a spray bottle of water daily. Wreaths will need to be brought in in January out of the sun to dry successfully for next year.  You can purchase a special preserver to spray on after bringing indoors, or simply use hairspray to maintain the shiny look.
Before assembling your wreath, I will soak the stems in glycerin water and use some green food coloring to help preserve the maximum freshness possible.  
Note: The heat and sun will not be kind to your wreath for extended uses outdoors. If using immediately indoors ,just hang outside at night during the preservation process during the cold weather.
