How to Make a Vision Board

How to Make a Vision Board

Helllo, Manifesters! I’ve written a ton of vision board and goal setting content for this blog, but today I’m excited to bring it back to the basics – how to make a vision board. I’ve taught workshops to thousands of people, both online and in person, and today I’m going to share the steps for creating your own powerful manifestation tool (anyone can do this, I promise!).

What is a Vision Board?

First things first, a vision board is more than just a collage of images. It’s a tangible representation of your goals, dreams, and aspirations. It’s a tool that helps you visualize and focus on the life you want to lead. Think of it as a visual and creative way to motivate and inspire yourself every day. For a lot more information on the “what’s” and “how’s” behind vision boards, you can grab my book, Make Anything Happen: A Creative Guide to Vision Boards, Goal Setting, and Achieving the Life of Your Dreams, on Amazon. I talk alllll about the fine details!

It’s important that you release any expectations of what it “should” be – your vision board is personal to YOU and your experience, and should reflect that.

Getting Started

Gather Your Supplies

You don’t need a lot to start. I’ve put together a collection of some of my favorite vision board making tools here. Here are the basics:

A board: It can be a corkboard, poster board, index card, or even a digital board if you prefer.

Magazines, photos, and prints: Look for images that resonate with your goals and dreams.

Scissors, glue, pins, or tape

Markers, stickers, or anything else for decoration.

Set Your Intentions

Before you start cutting and pasting, take a moment to really think about what you want to achieve. What are your goals for the next year? What kind of life do you want to lead? What makes you truly happy? These questions are essential in guiding you through the process.

Creating Your Vision Board

Now comes the fun part – putting it all together. As you sift through your materials, choose images and words that align with your goals and aspirations. Arrange them in a way that feels right to you. There’s no right or wrong way to do this. Remember, your board should be a source of inspiration and motivation.

Displaying Your Vision Board

Place your completed board somewhere you will see it every day. This could be your bedroom, your office, or even as a background on your digital devices. The key is to keep your goals in sight and mind. I’ve even made them in my planner before…and then I see it every time I open it up!

My Book: A Deeper Dive into Vision Boards

In my book, “Make Anything Happen,” I delve deeper into the art and science of vision boards. I share personal stories, actionable tips, and creative ideas to help you make the most of this powerful tool. Whether you’re new to vision boards or looking to refresh your current one, this book is packed with inspiration to help you set and achieve your goals (it’s also designed for you to write and journal in it, and comes with access to a bunch of free printables!).

You can find “Make Anything Happen” here!
