Suzelle and her best friend Marianne are back with another creative DIY hack video this time focusing on the animals that warm our hearts.


Cape Town, South Africa – Suzelle lives in Somerset West and manages a guesthouse. In her spare time, she films DIY videos with her best friend, Marianne who is her trusty sidekick. Julia Anastasopoulos created the South African sensation Suzelle DIY by adding a sprinkle of glitter, a little bit of pastel, a big hair bun and a braai pie.

She has been a South African sensation for nearly five years now, and her DIY skits just keep getting better. The most recent one has just been released, and it is a DIY four-poster dog bed for her best friend’s rescue Bakkies.

This isn’t the first time Suzelle has made something for Bakkies, in December last year she shared several helpful tips and hacks for loving pet owners to use. You can read that article here.

It has been no secret that Marianne is an animal lover, over the years Suzelle has pointed out numerous times that she is always covered in animal hair. This is due to her job as a dog groomer and her own pets, Bakkies and Cheryl.

“Hi, Guys! Today’s episode is proudly brought to you by One Plan Pet Insurance! Guess who brokered that deal? Marianne, of course! So, guys, we wanted to make something really special for Bakkies, something that is cuddly and offers cover — like One Plan Pet Insurance. What better idea than an upcycled doggy bed fit for a king! That is why today’s episode is: How to make a DIY Pallet Dog Bed!”
