  • Step 1

    Before you assemble your 3D boat, trace around each piece to create a template. This will help you later if you decorate your boat with paper.

  • Step 2

    Assemble your 3D boat before decorating to ensure easy construction. For permanent assembly you may need to glue the pieces together.

  • Step 3

    Paint your boat white. Allow to dry. This is not essential but provides a good base for painting.

  • Step 4

    Look to our boat designs for inspiration or come up with your own.

  • Step 5

    Sketch out your design onto a piece of paper before you start to decorate your boat. Once you have a design, transfer it lightly onto your boat using a pencil. This is not essential, but helps with planning your design.

  • Step 6

    Paint your design onto your boat. Allow to dry.

  • Step 7

    Gently apply a coat of glitter paint to add a touch of sparkle.

  • Step 8

    Alternatively, you could decorate your boat using craft paper. Lay your template (created in Step 1) on the reverse side of your craft paper, trace the shape and cut out.

  • Step 9

    Attach the craft paper to your boat using slightly watered down PVA glue.
