Funny and cute, this craft is perfect as a simple artist inspired craft or as a Christmas card to give away this holiday season. 

Who is Salvador Dali? 

Salvador Dalí was a Spanish artist, most known for his influence in the surrealism art movement. He has an incredible body of work, but his most famous painting is the one featuring melting clocks, titled "The Persistence of Memory."

After all, he once described his artwork as "hand-painted dream photographs." and we can see why!

STEP 2: Work on the colours.

Start by using your coloured markers to colour in each moustache and clock on the Dali art template. Each moustache should be a shade of green as these will make up the shape of the Christmas tree. The clocks can be any colour. 

As an alternative to coloured markers you could use paints or crayons to add colour to your template.

STEP 4: Make Dali inspired Christmas art!

As a final step, glue your Christmas tree design to the background paper of your choice. Stick the largest moustache shape to the bottom of your background and then stack the moustache shapes on top of each other in size order to create a Christmas tree shape.  Then add the rose to the top of your tree and a small thin brown moustache to the bottom of your tree to represent the tree trunk.
