Take a strip of fabric and attach it to the end of your handle bars with a zip tie. Start wrapping across your handle bars in a spiral. Attach a few zip ties as you go to hold the fabric in place.

Drape and spiral the lights along the frame, ending at the handle bars. Zip tie as you go to hold everything in place.
