Lighted Angel Ornament - Crochet Pattern


One of the many Lighted Ornaments in my collection. The Angel ornament is quick, easy and a fantastic stash buster for the holidays. What a cute stocking stuffer or gift topper. 

Yarn: Scrap amounts of the following colors in worsted weight yarn.
Light pink (or peach)

Materials / Tools:
Size G / 4.0mm crochet hook
Battery operated tea light
Red 3D fabric paint
Pink 3D fabric paint
Black 3D fabric paint
2 – 10mm wiggle eyes
stitch marker
craft glue
small paint brush
yarn needle
Difficulty: Easy

1. The “face” of the Angel Ornament is worked in continuous rounds not joining.

2. As I was putting it together, I glued the wiggle eyes on it and wasn’t sure if I liked it or not, so I tried another one and used just the black paint for a closed eye look. In the end I liked them both, so you can choose which eye look you want to make.



Round 1: With light pink (or peach) and G/4.0mm crochet hook make 10 sc in a magic circle making sure not to pull the center closed. Use a stitch marker to keep track of each round by placing it in the first stitch and move it up for each round. (10 sc)

Round 2: Work 2 sc in each st around. (20 sc) At this point I like to place the “flame” of the candle into the center hole and adjust making sure it fits snugly then I secure and weave in the center yarn tail.

Rounds 3-7: sc in each stitch around. Do NOT fasten off, Place the stitch marker in the loop of the last stitch and cut a long enough tail for sewing then set aside. (If your tea light happens to be a little taller you can add an 8th round)



With white yarn ch 23. dc in 4th ch from hook and in next 3 st, hdc in next 3 st, sc in next 2 st, sl st in next 2 st, sc in next 2 st, hdc in next 3 st, dc in next 4 st, chain 3 and join with sl st to the 1st st of the starting ch leaving a tail long enough for sewing on to the face.


With yellow yarn ch 14, join with sl st to 1st chain to form a ring. finish off leaving the tail long enough for sewing.

Now lay the wings along the bottom and sides of the face along the last row and sew into place. Sew the halo on top of the face centered between the wings. Next take a 10 in piece of yarn (or a piece of ribbon instead) and loop it through the top of the face and halo as a hanger so it will easily hang on the tree.

Next, it’s time to put the crocheted piece on the tea light. Slide it on like a sock making sure the “flame” fits nice and snug in the hole of the face. Put your yarn needle on the tail you left and start weaving it around the last row tightening it just enough to fit snugly around the base of the tea light but making sure the on/off button is still operational.


Fasten off and weave in ends. Now give your angel ornament some personality! First glue on the wiggle eyes or if you prefer, use the black fabric paint and draw the closed eyes instead. Next, paint the cheeks using a paint brush and a small amount of the pink fabric paint and then use the red 3D paint to make a mouth.

May your stitch count be true and your frogs be few!

  1. Do you recall the diameter of the tealights? The ones I'm finding are just over an inch. Thanks!

    1. So sorry I didn't get back to you right away! I totally missed this comment for some reason. I have used a couple different brands and they are all in that 1 inch to 1 1/4 inch diameter range. I have also noticed some are a little taller on the sides than others, but it's easy to add or subtract a row if needed to fit the brand of tealight you happen to get.

      I hope this helps!

  2. Hi Tracee where can I find the lighted santa head please, thank you

    1. Hi Marelva! When I switch my site not all of my content migrated over the way it was supposed to. If you email me at and ask, I can send you the pdf for now. I plan to get all of the ornaments back online, but have found my time very limited lately. Thanks so much for reaching out, and I look forward to hearing from you.

  3. I am delighted by your tea light ornaments. I would be pleased to be able to buy the instructions for them all. Jane

    1. Thanks for reaching out! I have to format most of these yet so not all of them are ready to go and with the busyness of the season, I don't think I'll have time to get them all ready in time for you. But feel free to email me at and maybe I can get a couple of them to you.
