DIY Vision Board

With the new year in full force, if you believe in them or not, it’s easy to get swept up in the wave of new beginnings, new you*, new resolutions. I’m not into resolutions myself, but I am into having a new mantra(s) for the year to come. I thought it would be cool to do something different this year - something to remind myself daily of the hope and inspiration and newness this year will bring. Enter: a vision board!

There’s no wrong way to do a vision board. It’s completely customizable to you and your aspirations. My supply list consists of: poster board (I used a black half sheet), magazines (prints, newspapers, whatever!) scissors, glue tape (Staples) and mounting putty.

After you have the supplies, it’s a breeze. Go through your materials and cut out the words or images that stand out to you.

Simply use the glue tape to create the collage on the poster board - and voila! Use the mounting putty to place your new vision board wherever you can see it to be inspired daily!
