How to Create a Vision Board

Before we get started on how to create an inspiring vision board, let’s first share what a vision board is to begin with!

Consider a vision board a visual demonstration and manifestation of your goals and intentions for your life.

Say for example, you want to open your own business. The vision board would have a picture of your business on it for you to look at each day. Or for example, say you want a loving marriage: you would put a photo of a happy couple up on your board and visualize your happy marriage into existence!

It’s truly an artistic and unique expression of your goals so you can view it daily to keep you on track. A vision board will truly help you manifest your goals instead of wishing “stuff would happen to you.”

Not only are these vision boards excellent tools for self-growth, but they’re also fun to make. So, with that said, let’s dive into how to create your own vision board:

First: What Are Your Goals?

Write down a quick list of the things that are the most important to you.

For instance: perhaps it’s paying off debt, losing weight or healing relationships within your family.

Whatever your goal is, write it down! 

If you’re feeling stuck, consider these areas of “life:”

  • Love
  • Career
  • Health
  • Finances
  • Personal Achievement

Second: Get Some Images to Match Your Goals

Now that you’ve written down your goals, find some images online, in magazines or even old books you don’t mind either photocopying images from or tearing a page or two. 

You could also use old photos or inspirational quotes—whatever resonates for you and visually demonstrates your goals.

Third: Now, It’s Time to Get Your Goals on Paper

Grab some poster board or thick paper stock. You could get some oak tag too. You’ll want this to be at least 11x17 in terms of size.

Don’t forget some glue, markers, fabric glue, fabric (if you have any) and scissors. If you like a little sparkle, add some glitter but be prepared to sparkle for at least a week afterwards.

If you want to be cautious, first put out the images and items for your vision board out on the poster board without gluing so you can see how you can lay things out properly. Once you’ve done that, take a pic so you remember where everything goes before gluing. Just remember that after you’re done, give it time to dry.

Be sure to date your vision board so you understand where you were emotionally, when.

Finally: Show it off

Make sure you have a place where you can see your vision board every day. You might even want to take a smartphone pic and upload it to your computer as a desktop pic or smartphone background to “see” your visions even more throughout the day.
