Hi Aankhen,

There's not built-in function to accomplish this that I am aware of.

This is a bit of a hack but it will probably get you the result you
want.  If you set org-clock-into-drawer to the drawer than you want and
set org-clock-out-remove-zero-time-clocks then you can visit each
heading using some elisp code, clock in and immediately clock out the
headline and it should create a drawer and wrap your existing data.

I haven't actually done this... so YMMV.
