How can I make my 8 strands of icicle lights seem continuous?

I usually use icicle lights, I have 8 stands of lights that I put up every year. Some have lights that do not turn on is there a way to combine to make it seem continuous. Not wanting to have to buy new sets of lights.

    Should be able to replace burned out base-strand bulbs & make them work.

    If you want to cut the wiring & splice them, consider that electricians’ tape is really not enough for wet/winter electrical protection & wire nuts look “huge”.

    There are 3M “splicing nuts”, but you just as well wait until after Xmas clearance and buy new ones, as those slick 3M products are pricey.

  • Cant you just replace the broken ones in each strand from one of the strand. Rather have 7 complete strand than 8.
