Using Both Fresh and Unconventional Materials

This lesson focuses on anything other than fresh plant materials, like plastic, paper, steel, household objects and so on, using your imagination to create a flower arrangement. I found a piece of square mesh wire sheet and a piece of orange nylon net (used for fruit bags). These are unconventional materials. I wanted the nylon net to soften the mesh wire sheet. Then I used a piece of drift wood to secure the sheet and added sunflowers, mums, and black pine to complete my composition.
In the class I arranged the upright one first (bottom picture), but the teacher said that it was not tall enough. I solved this problem by laying the materials down on the container. Is it better? "Oh, yes! It's beautiful!" my teacher and classmates said.
