How do I use real pine tree branches?

by Cindy

I usually buy the fake pine tree branches and other garland at Michael's to use in my crafts but I recently was given some real pine tree branches with little pine cones on them. My question is; do I have to spray them with anything before I use them in my crafts so they don't eventually start rotting or dying? Is there anything I should use to spray them with to preserve them first?

Thank you in advance.
