How To Create A Vision Board in 5 Easy Steps

A vision board or dream board is a powerful visualisation tool used to aspire towards your life and future goals.

It typically consists of a poster board or cork board on which you create a collage of images cut out from various print sources such as magazines and photographs.

The idea is that when you surround yourself with a clear picture of your ideal life, who you want to become, what you want to have and where you want to live, you will begin to manifest these desires through the power of visualisation.

Here’s a simple way to create an empowering vision board at home:

What you need to get started:

  • Poster board/poster paper or simply use a scrapbook that you have lying around the house.
  • A big stack of different magazines/visual material. Make sure you find lots of different types to widen your artistic options.
  • Glue or an adhesive.

Step 1 

Determine your goals and your future desires in life. What does the next 12 months look like? What are the next steps you need to take in order to achieve these personal targets?

Think about:

  • Your core values
  • Career goals
  • Family life
  • Love life
  • Health & wellness
  • How you spend your free time – hobbies, passions etc.
  • What you want to learn or grow into

Step 2

Collate imagery from your selection of magazine/photographs/other inspiration sources and start mapping out the crucial milestones in reaching your full potential. Find visuals that represent your goals and inspire you to act.

  • Newspaper cutouts
  • Magazine cutouts
  • Images/quotes 
  • Your Pinterest board
  • Photographs
  • Pages from a book
  • Brochures/pamphlets/flyers with special meaning

Step 3

Time to get creative and make a collage using your chosen photos and cutouts. Lay them all out any way you choose on your poster paper, cork board or whatever base you have chosen for your masterpiece.

Step 4

Reinforce the feeling you want to experience once these goals and dreams fall into place. Place positive motivational quotes and affirmations alongside the imagery that describe how YOU want to feel. You can search for these words in your chosen magazines or write them yourself for a more hands-on and personal approach. 

Step 5

Place your vision board front and centre in a spot where you look every day, a suggestion would be to place it on your nightstand right next to where you dream. Take a few minutes daily to review your board to ensure your goals are top of mind as you train your mind to attract what you wish to bring into your life.

We hope we’ve inspired you to map out your dreams in a tangible way and spark the law of attraction to manifest what you truly desire.
