What is an ‘amazing’ project?

For us, a wild project is…
…a DIY project made from scratch.
…thrilling, exciting and extraordinary.
…a creation that tells a unique, personal story.
…basically, an amazing, jaw-dropping project!

At ManoMano, we believe that DIY isn’t just limited to your home or garden. We want to bring inspiring, crazy and fun projects into the spotlight so that others can relive the many emotions that you felt whilst creating it!

A wild project is, above all, a state of mind – you need a hint of madness to embark on an adventure like this! We’re looking for people who are capable of stepping up and overcoming challenges… just for the fun of it. We’re not just looking for the perfect DIY story, we want to see the honesty behind the scenes: the overcome failures, frustrations, time spent, moments of self-denial, patience and tenacity.

See Jonathan’s story below as a perfect example!


If that sounds right up your street, then we can’t wait for you to get in touch!

What is The Amazing Making Of Web Series?
