Default Where to wire led lights?

Hey guys I have 2 led strips for my floor dash that I just installed. Right now I have them wired through the dome light switch. However every time I turn it on, it blows the fuse. Can I put a larger fuse in? Or should I wire it somewhere else?

Any advice helps, thanks

Something doesn't sound like its wired right the LEDs shouldn't pull enough to blow the fuse

Lol, I cut the casing around the parking/running lights and wrapped the wire around those and taped it off. A little ghetto but it worked, any time my headlights or running lights were on so were my floor lights
