I planted hydrangeas in the corner of my yard and now hydrangea plants are popping up all over the yard up to 20 feet away and on the other side of the fence in the neighbor's yard. Didn't know they were so invasive... How to stop them from spreading?

Hydrangea mopheads sold tend to have mostly sterile blooms (except for the ones that have lacecap blooms). Post pictures -close ups of leaves, stems, blooms (if any)- to determine if you have similar looking weeds or vines. By the way, what type of hydrangeas did you originally plant there? Maybe they died???

Yes, the big "thing" climbing the fence is not a typical hydrangea bush (the bush would not climb). There is a climbing hydrangea but that is why I was asking what type of hydrangea(s) was planted in the corner...
