Saving a weak colony for winter

We are grateful you are here

Saving a weak colony for winter

I have a beehive that's 10 frames large, but only 3 have bees on them so there's alot of empty room. The bees are queenless and i'd want to keep them alive for the spring so i could create a new queen from my other hive. I wonder if they will be able to stay warm enough during winter? If not, could they stay alive if i were to build a smaller hive that has only 2-3 frames of space?

EDIT: I think i'm gonna play it safe and combine the hives with the newspaper method.
