Step 2: Use water to wash away dirt leaving just the roots. Remove any dead leaves.

Step 3: 
Insert floral wire through the base of the succulent. Then place your skewer perpendicular to the roots and wrap the wire around to keep in place. (Do this gently so you don't rip out the wire!) Add a bit of glue from your hot glue gun to help hold it in place. (Try to keep the roots intact if possible!) If you have floral tape on hand you can use this to secure instead of glue!
