What You’ll Need

  • 9 glasses, 1 taller than the other 8
  • Frosted glass paint
  • Long piece of balsa wood
  • Wood stain (optional)
  • Scissors
  • Long, flat piece of wood
  • Hot glue
  • 9 tall candles
  • Knife (optional)
  • Sun template
  • Cardstock
  • Yellow paint
  • Small paintbrush
  • Purple, pink, and yellow paper

How To Make It

  1. Start by spraying all the glasses with the frosted paint.
  2. Next, using scissors, cut the balsa wood into the shape of the boat. Make sure it’s a little longer than the wood that the candles will be attached to. (Optional: stain the boat to be a darker color if you want, and let dry!)
  3. Glue the boat to the side of the long, flat piece of wood. Then glue all the glasses onto the flat wood.
  4. Trim down the candles, if needed, with a knife so they are just peeking out of each glass.
  5. Download and print the sun template onto cardstock. Then cut it out and use to paint a sun onto the tall, middle glass.
  6. Glue the candles into the 8 shorter glasses.
  7. Cut out a circle of balsa wood — that’s the right size for the glass — as a base for the tall, middle candle. Glue it to the candle so you can set it in the glass and take it out again.
  8. Cut out some festive flowers and glue them onto the boat.
  9. Don’t forget Pascal!


All cutting and gluing should be done by an adult.
