Hi Chloe, VERY nice on both designs and thank you for sharing your process which is very unique and as Pattie said "thinking outside the box".
I must correct you on one of your supply items. Floral Oasis is used for wet arrangements that have REAL flowers. It is totally soaked so that it helps to keep greenery and flowers hydrated. What you should be using is regular styrofoam, either in block form or cutting from a sheet. The chicken wire is a great idea to help support the styrofoam/Oasis and to tie onto the bat.
The floral oasis you are using would be great for outdoor use IF you will be using real greenery such as pine and spruce pieces(which would be lovely in your design). Since you used chicken wire AND if it is decided to use real greenery you can reuse the oasis maybe one more time but make sure it is dried out before bringing inside. My sister and I owned a Florist Shop and this is how I know and my comment is only to help. Please have a Merry Christmas
