It’s no secret that I have a little obsession with vision boards.  I love having all of my goals and dreams in one place.  Looking at it reminds me of everything I want to accomplish.  A vision board is the big picture.  But, what if you want something for monthly goals or a reminder of fun things you’ve done lately?

I wanted a place that my family and I could hang a list of things we wanted to do for the month and display little artifacts of adventures we’ve gone on.  I had a lightbulb moment, grabbed one of my mini cork boards, and got to work.

The result?  Mini Mood Boards.  


Mini mood boards can be made out of cork boards, poster board, a simple sheet of paper, chalkboard, or anything that you can display things on.  I like using cork boards because they can easily be changed every month.  You may want to do something that you can save each month and bind them together to create a yearbook.  As with vision boards, the possibilities are virtually endless.

How to make a mini mood board

Once you’ve decided what medium you would like to use for your mini mood board you can really start to get creative.  There is no right or wrong way to make one.  You need three things:  a board, things to hang on it, a place to display it.  Bam!  You have yourself your very own mini mood board.

Here are a couple ideas to hang on your board.
  • A monthly theme
  • A monthly word
  • Bucket lists
  • Important dates
  • Style inspiration
  • Color pallets
  • Ticket stubs
  • Flowers from an arrangement you received
  • Photos
  • Quotes
  • Memories

I really love the idea of starting out with a simple or blank board and having it full by the end of the month.  Be sure to display it in a place that you’ll see it often.  Take a couple of moments through out the day to look at each of the items.  This is a great way to look over your accomplishments and remind yourself of things you still want to do before the month end.

I called it a mini mood board, because when I look at it, I want it to spark emotion.  I want to feel determination, peace, satisfied, happy, motivated, or uplifted.  Think about what you want your mood board to represent and carefully choose what you display.  Whether it is a color swatch or a favorite picture, it should move you.
