Did you ever get asked the question, tell me about yourself? If you have, then you know the many of things that come to mind that you want to blurt out all at once. Or, you truly can’t think of anything off the top of your head haha. Today, I made a vision board (well I got a little creative with the “board” part)! A vision board, in my opinion, shows what you want or need in life, your dreams, your inspirations, your beliefs, your struggles to overcome…it shows who you are. If you look at my vision board, you will see all the things that make me! This vision board was such an easy D.I.Y. and it cost me under $25! If you want to know how to make one yourself, keep reading!

Hello gorgeous, hope you are having a great day today! Welcome back to my blog, if you are new, heyyyyy! Let’s be friends, you can find me on Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest and Facebook. I get to show you behind the scenes sneak peeks of upcoming blog posts! Subscribe to my blog! You will be notified every time I post a new blog post, you don’t want to miss that! Ok, let’s get into how to make this vision board!
Vision Board Materials
- push pins
- 4×6 photos or you can do 5×5 (and as many as you like)
- white rope (or you could use twine)
- clothes pins
- fairy lights (optional)
Vision Board: Step 1
Ok first thing you want to do is find out what your visions are! I used my Tumblr, Pinterest and Weheartit for a lot of inspiration photography. I found about 47 pictures and only used 45 haha (ran out of room).
Once you find the pictures you need, save them to a usb and go get the photos developed! You can opt to just print them out on regular printer paper but I personally wanted my vision board to look more professional. I went to Walgreens to develop my photos and I had a coupon! My photos were 10 cents each for 47 photos, that’s only 4.70 (rack up those reward points lol)! Regular price without a discount is 35 cents per photo, which isn’t bad! Target and CVS also offers a photo developing service. I chose to do the 4×6 option, but you can choose what ever size you like!
Vision Board: Step 2
I didn’t want to actually make my vision board…well a board. To change the concept around, I opted to use rope instead and hang the photos on the rope with clothes pins. Michaels arts and crafts was my next stop. I picked up 2 packs of ropes for $3 each (only ended up needing 1), and some clothes pins that were on sale for $1.47 each. You can opt to use twine instead of rope, but I felt that it would be easier to use push pins with thin rope.
Find your location!
I wanted to hang my vision board above my bed, the perfect place for dreams haha!
Take your rope and measure where you want to it hang from your bed. Start pinning the rope into the wall. You can be creative with how you hang the rope, I just opted to do horizontal lines with the rope hanging just a bit.
Vision Board: Step 3
Once you have your rope of for your vision board, it’s time to add the pictures! You can add the pictures in any order as you would like. I honestly just separated which pictures were vertical and which were horizontal and kept those together.
Use the clothes pins to hang your pictures on the rope. When hanging the pictures you can either leave space or you can leave no space.
Vision Board: Step 4
I couldn’t make a vision board above my bed without some lights! Walmart has these fairy lights for around $8! Unfortunately, I don’t remember how many feet it gives you but, it was enough to cover my whole vision board!
What did you think about this super easy and affordable D.I.Y? All together this project only cost me under $25! I love seeing other’s vision boards so if you make one, tag me on Instagram or Twitter so I can see! Comment down below one vision you have for your future! Until next time…
Happily ever poor,
