How To Make a Vision Board That works


So you know what a vision board is, maybe you think it would be kind of cool to have. Well in this post I’m showing you why a vision board is ESSENTIAL for creating a life full of magic + giving you a step-by-step guide on how you can make your own!


why do i need a vision board?

Creating a sacred space that displays what you want keeps it at the forefront of your mind and brings it to life.

We become and attract what we continually focus on; the brain ensures this – science shows this and the most successful people on the planet attest to it. Creating a vision board and placing it in a space where you see it often, essentially causes you to do little visualisation exercises constantly during your day without much effort at all.

Visualisation has again been proven to be one of the most fundamental keys to achieving extraordinary goals - the more you do it the better!

It also directs your actions and helps you consciously and subconsciously decide what actions you do or don’t take according to the images imprinted in your mind.

The law of attraction is forming your entire life experience and it is doing that through your thoughts. When you are visualizing, you are emitting a powerful frequency out into the Universe.

How to make your vision board in one afternoon!

What you’ll need:

  1. A frame (20 x 16”) - get the same one I have here.

  2. Scissors

  3. Glue stick

  4. Magazine (to cut words and images reflecting you vision)

  5. Printed images to reflect vision

  6. A verse or a quote that inspires you/captures your vision printed in bold.

How to make it:

step 1:

The vision board should by default reflect your vision; It should contain images and quotes that inspire you individually. Don’t just stick generic things on there. If it’s your dream to build your parents a house put a picture of them on them, if you have a dream car put it on there, if you want to be on Ted put that on there…the point is it should reflect your true desires and vision otherwise it’s just a pretty board.

So spend some time thinking about this before you start making your board.

 step 2

Once you are ready to start creating your board - Set the mood. Turn on some relaxing music, put a candle on, declutter your area and turn your phone off from distractions.

Whatever you need to do to create an atmosphere (externally and internally) that makes you feel inspired - do it!


Most frames come with a large white sheet inside them so I simply cut and organise my images on that sheet then glue them down when I am happy with the images. If it doesn’t come with one then just use plain lined paper. (obviously you will need the images printed first)

NB: Your big quote/verse should be central on your board.

Put the frame together and you are done!

I know people who change their vision board every year, but I like to keep it simple and create a more long term one. You can also consider having separate vision boards for the different areas in your life - relationships, career etc. But if this is your first board or if you’re easily overwhelmed start with one.

That’s all from me.
