Make a Vision Board

Creating a vision board can be a fun and inspiring activity to help make your goals and aspirations your reality.

Here's a step-by-step guide on how to make a vision board:

Materials Needed:

  1. Canvas: Choose a size that suits your preference. I typically use a 14"x 14" canvas. You can substitute a canvas with poster board.
  2. Magazines: Gather magazines with images and words that resonate with your goals. Sometimes, local libraries will offer free magazines that are outdated.
  3. Scissors: To cut out pictures and words.
  4. Decoupage or glue: Use adhesive to attach your cutouts to the board. If you're using decoupage, follow the instructions on the bottle.
  5. Markers, pens, paints, or colored pencils: (Optional) for adding personal touches.
  6. Stickers or embellishments: (Optional) for extra decoration.


  1. Define Your Goals:
  • Before you start, clarify your goals. Reflect on the different areas of life and what you want to achieve. You can refer to our list on our Happiness Plan page here.
  1. Gather Materials: Collect magazines and other materials that align with your goals. Look for images, quotes, and words that resonate with your vision.
  2. Create a Relaxing Environment: Find a quiet and comfortable space to work on your vision board. Play some calming music if it helps.
  3. Cut Out Inspirational Images and Words: Flip through the magazines and cut out images, quotes, and words that reflect your goals and aspirations. Be open-minded and trust your instincts.
  4. Arrange Your Cutouts: Lay out your cutouts on the board without gluing them down. Experiment with different arrangements until you find a layout that feels right.
  5. Glue or Tape Your Cutouts: Once satisfied with the arrangement, start gluing your cutouts onto the board. Take your time to ensure everything is secure.
  6. Add Personal Touches: (Optional) Use markers, pens, or colored pencils to add personal touches, doodles, or notes to your vision board.
  7. Include Affirmations: (Optional) Write positive affirmations that align with your goals. These can be empowering statements that help to reinforce your belief in achieving what you desire.
  8. Final Touches: (Optional) Once decoupage or glue is dry, paint around the outside edges of your canvas with a color that suites you
  9. Review and Reflect: Step back and take a moment to review your vision board. Reflect on the images and words you've chosen and the emotions they evoke.
  10. Display Your Vision Board: Find a prominent place to display your vision board where you'll see it regularly. This constant visual reminder can help keep you focused on your goals.

Creating a vision board is a personal and creative process, so feel free to adapt these steps to suit your style and preferences.
