DIY Vision Board

January and the new year brings talks of resolutions and getting a fresh start with goals. I’ve never been a big resolution person, but I’ve always been a big goal setting and vision board kind of person. I find resolutions tend to be a silly thing that people talk about at NYE parties, and although they’re well-intentioned, they’re often forgotten by the end of January, if not before. Goals on the other hand, come with systems and action, and when they’re written out and posted on vision boards, and checked in with throughout the year, they have a much higher chance of being achieved.

Normally with the new year I do a full goal setting session that breaks down goals into categories and follows each one with action steps, you can read more about it in a post from 2 years ago when I first started the blog, 3 Steps For Planning Your 2016 Goals. However, with baby Logan coming any day now I feel like I am entering a year of the unknown and I’ve opted for a simpler version that I’ll share with you here. It basically consists of creating some simple goals for different areas of your life: family, work, health, etc. and putting them together with images for a really cute DIY vision board.

How to create a simple goal orientated vision board.


  1. Decide how you would like your grid pattern to look on your corkboard.
  2. Cut elastics to size and secure them to the corkboard either through:
    1. Sewing them on if you have a thin corkboard like I do, or
    2. Securing with thumbtacks.
  3. Write out your goals.
    1. They can be simple, or more in depth.
    2. I like to have goals that cover different categories of my life: family, business, health, etc.
  4. Find pictures that correspond to your goals.
    1. I like to use We Heart It for this, but you could use personal photos, Pinterest, or anything else you like using.
  5. Use Canva to create your images with goals written on top.
    1. Choose what size you want your design. Mine are 3 x 3 inches.
    2. Upload your images to Canva.
    3. Make each goal image by using the picture, making it transparent, and using the text tool to write your goal on top.
    4. Download your finished images.
  6. Cut out your goals and pop them into your corkboard. Make sure it’s somewhere that you’ll look at on a regular basis!

    Thanks for sharing this, i always plan to make one every year but never do lo.. The ones i see seem so time consuming especially having to search for the pictures and so on. This seems a lot easier to do, thanks!

      This one can definitely be a lot quicker and easier. Especially if you use simple backgrounds for each of your goals instead of spending tons of time finding just the right picture.

    Thanks for this!!! Such an easy project. I love vision boards. One of my favorite Bible Verses is Habakkuk 2:2-“write the vision, and make it plain!”
