Suzelle DIY – How to make a Terrarium
I am sure most of you have seen the hilarious “How to make a Braai Pie” video that recently launched Suzelle DIY – “a bitesize do-it-yourself webseries” – into local stardom.
I can completely understand why Suzelle has taken country by storm. There is something so distinctly South African about her quirky yet helpful DIY clips. Her humorous portrayal of a certain Afrikaans stereotype is SO easy to relate to and love. I especially love the videos that feature Suzelle’s silent and awkward best friend, Marianne.
In the video above Suzelle walks us through creating a beautiful terrarium – a perfect and creative gift for a friend or loved one. D.I.Why? Because anybody can!
Interesting titbit: Suzelle is the alter ego of Capetonian designer, artist and illustrator Julia Anastasopoulos. Julia’s beautiful hand drawn works can be seen all around town – on the walls and windows of some MyCiti bus stations, as well as a gorgeous illustrated mural in the children’s section of The Book Lounge in Roeland Street. Julia, who has a background in theatre, teamed up with talented filmmaker and animator Ari Kruger to create the beautifully styled and shot Suzelle DIY.
Love Suzelle DIY as much as we do? Want to see more of her videos? Be sure to check out her YouTube channel: here.
