Make your own adorable little no sew anti hero ghost ornaments. These DIY Taylor Swift themed ornaments are inspired by the ghosts in the Anti-Hero music video and they will look hilarious on your tree!
They are so cute with fun sunglasses and vintage sheets.
I used floral fabrics, felt and puffy paint to make them. The optional hats are hilarious to add to the top!

How to make an Anti-Hero Ghost Christmas Ornament
Start by cutting out the fabric using the pattern piece. The fold line should be on a fold of fabric so it will make a full circle after your cut it out.
Also cut your choice of sunglasses from felt.
Use your puffy paint to outline the sunglasses. Use a solid stream of the dimensional fabric paint or make blobs of paint to create a floral sunglasses look.
The floral effect works best if you outline the sunglasses and let try until tacky. Then go back and add dots of paint around leaving about a dot’s worth of space between each one. The paint may look pointed at first but should settle into a more round blob.
While the sunglasses dry, grab a styrofoam ball and ornament hook. Straighten one end of the hook. Find the middle of the circle of fabric and poke the straight end through.
Put a dab of glue on the foam ball and stick hook and fabric into it. Press down the fabric around the hook.
Add more glue on the styrofoam and pull fabric down over it. Arrange the fabric so it pleats to your liking. Pull the fabric up and rearrange pleats as needed until you get the look you want.
When you have a shape you like your ghost base is done.
When the sunglasses are fully dry, glue them to the ghost. Everybody agrees these anti hero ghost ornaments are perfect for your Swiftmas tree!
If you prefer, omit the ornament hook and use these as a shelf decoration – the ghost will stand up on the fabric.
If you are adding a hat, poke a hole through the top of the hat with a needle and thread the ornament hook through the hat. Glue the hat to the top of the ghost.
The cowboy hats are hard plastic, so instead of a hook, glue a piece of twine or ribbon to the top of the ghost. Then glue the hat on top.
