Fall Wreaths

I must have a thing for wreaths.  These were inspired by Pinterest (imagine that).

After comissioning David to pick me some corn leaves, then letting them sit on the porch for three weeks, I finally got around to finishing another project.
12" styrofoam wreath form + corn leaves (husks, whatever) + hot glue =

They are a little wide for the doors.  I obviously didn't measure before I started glueing.  And they are pretty delicate.  To tell you the truth, they are probably not going to hold up long enough to justify the all trouble they were worth.  Shhh... don't tell David.
But they sure are pretty, I think!
So is there something I could spray them with that would keep the leaves from being so crumbly?  Like some kind of acrylic finishing spray?  Or would that just make them look weird and glossy?
ps.  After yesterday's post, I feel like a total wishy-washy hypocrite.  One minute posting about how I'm convicted to live a simpler, less-materialistic lifestyle and the next posting about some home-decor project.  Aren't they mutually exclusive?  I don't know, but I'm pretty sure the Lord wants to show me the answer.  Life is a balance.
