Start by wrapping a single pipe cleaner around the end of the string of lights. Then, wind it all the way up around the wire. You may need more than one pipe cleaner for each color. Repeat with all of the rest of your colors, and try not to cover the lights. Keep testing the lights to make sure they still operate.
