How To Make A Vision Board
While we’re nearly a month into 2018, if you haven’t gotten clear on your intentions for this year yet, trust me—there’s still time! Feeling empowered to get clear in your wishes and desires? Lets create your 2019 vision board?
It’s easier than you may think. Simply follow the outline below to prepare and ultimately create what may be one of the most important things you can for yourself in 2019.
Step 1: Plan Out Your Board
Thoughtfully consider the message you want your personalized board to convey and how you want your vision board to look.
Before you begin, ask yourself the following questions and commit to the suggested action (your vision board supply list) to follow through with.
a. What true wishes and desires do you want to reflect on your dream board?
- Your values
- Career goals
- Family life
- Love life
- Health & Wellness
- How you spend your free time
- What you want to learn or grow into
Make note of your answer before you begin selecting your images.
b. Do you want one board or multiple boards for different areas of your life?
Some people prefer to make several small boards to visualize several categories of desires, while others prefer to make one large board that encompasses everything desired.
Keep in mind that you’ll need to place this board in a visible area that you see every day. For a small space, don’t buy a huge, poster board. If you’re picky about design and want your board to match your decor, consider that as well.
Now that you’ve figured out whether you want one board or multiple boards, follow the follow action list for the creation of your board:

c. What type of images will you use (printed or actual photographs)? And where will you source them from?
You can source these images from:
- Newspaper cutouts
- Magazine cutouts
- Images/Quotes printed from the internet
- Your Pinterest board
- Pages from a book
Images are a major component of vision boards. For photographs printed from the internet and cut out from magazines, use stick glue, tape or hot glue. For precious items or photographs, buy acid-free, removable adhesive that is safe for photos.
Action — Add To Your Shopping List: Glues/Adhesives needed
d. Decide on your vision board style — tidy board or messy board?
Some people don’t mind haphazardly cutting out photos and glueing them to a board. Others prefer a tidy and neat board. If you’re fine with imperfect cutouts, stick to scissors. But, if you need perfectly cut out, intricate images, pick up an x-acto blade and a cutting mat for a much more enjoyable experience.
Action — Add To Your Shopping List: Scissors or any other cutting tools.
e. Adding embellishments to your board?
To imagine ‘the look’ and unique, potential experience of creating your board, ask yourself a few questions:
- Do you want your board to feature an affirmation (you might want stencils or letter stickers)?
- Do you want to add decorative elements so your board will fit in with your decor (maybe decorative tape or stickers)?
- Is there a certain kind of incense or candle you’d like to burn while you create your board?
Make sure to have all the supplies on hand to make that happen.
