Having just completed building Audrey II for Little Shop of Horrors and having a very positive reaction to her appearance, I decided to make a few gifts for some fellow folks on the creative team for the show. These buds are intended to match the overall aesthetic of the ones seen in the show, but to hold up to closer scrutiny and look nice on a desk or window or shelf or wherever, as well as being an appropriate size for display.


Their overall design is based on the final clipped buds of Audrey II, and their colors and patterns match their bigger counterparts.


This tutorial is overall more simple and explained with more detail than my work on Audrey II, if you would like a small, stationary Audrey II pod at home, this would be ideal for construction.

Step 1: Materials

The materials here vary slightly from the on-stage Audrey II plants, as here there's no need for theatrical demands.


  • Cotton Broadcloth in Yellow and Dark Green

  • Brown Faux Fur and a Terra Cotta Pot

  • Polyfil (Plush Filling)

  • Thread

  • Hot Melt Glue

  • Acrylic Paint
