How to Create a Vision Board
One of my favorite ways to make a vision board is with a secret board on Pinterest. You can also use a non-secret board, of course, but it just depends on if you want other people to see your vision board.
Personally, I had a couple years of secret boards on Pinterest for my vision boards, and eventually deleted them as I moved on to new goals so I wouldn’t still have a vision board for old goals. 😉
I liked to save things like pretty pins and pictures, inspirational quotes, words or quotes that described how I wanted to feel, a few blog posts if they had relevant advice or tips for my dreams, and even a few things like photos of hairstyles I wanted (like the time I got a pixie cut) or places I wanted to travel to. You can really make your vision board however you want it!
Another common way to make vision boards if by actually creating a physical one, such as using a poster board and gluing photos or printouts to it, or pinning things up on a bulletin board in a place that you see daily. You can cut out pictures, words, or quotes from magazines or print out things from online.
I’ve also created a vision board of sorts in front of my desk at various times. I just tape up inspirational prints and quotes and artwork depending on what my current goals and dreams are, and then you can easily replace pictures as needed. It also doubles as a pretty room decoration! We have lots of inspirational prints and digital printables in our Etsy shop too. 🙂

No matter how you create it, vision boards can be a great visual reminder of where you’re trying to go in your life and keep you on track with your biggest dreams.
