I used small wire nuts and shoved them back in the wall, then stuffed some insulation in and covered it all with a patch of painters tape before re-installing the screws.

Maybe overkill,l but if you feel a draft coming out of the hole it will prevent it from affecting the thermostat operation.

The original tstat had been connected with wire nuts (stuffed in the wall). Once I removed the tstat, I was able to get the wires (with nuts) through the hole. I connected the new one exactly like the original one. Then stuffed the wiring with wire nuts back in the hole. My tstat is on an interior wall, so I didn't put any additional insulation in.
