God wants us to see through His eyes, so sometimes we need to make things even more tangible. Visualize your dreams by developing a dream or inspiration board. You can put it anywhere in your home to view it, change it, and pray over it as you feel inspired.

Supplies Needed:

  • 23 x 35 inch corkboard (or one that fits your desired space)
  • 1 ½ yards of fabric (color and pattern of your choice)
  • Thumbtacks
  • Glue and/or glue gun
  • Scissors
  • Jute string
  • Spray adhesive
  • Paint brushes/sponges
  • Paint (color of your choice)
  • Ribbon
  • Die cuts or paper shape cutouts
  • Your choice of embellishments such as personal pictures, flowers, broaches, stickers, magazine cutouts, letters, inspirational quotes, etc. Choose items that represent your dreams, goals, and inspirations which remind you to pray for the strength and wisdom to move forward on them.

Instructions:

Step 1: Spray the corkboard with the spray adhesive and spread the fabric smoothly over the corkboard; hold it in place with the thumbtacks around the border.

Step 2: Begin to add your larger embellishments such as ribbon, broaches, or letters. Paint the letters fun colors to match or even offset your fabric. A banner or the letters themselves can be hung on the wall above, below, or on the side to allow more space on the corkboard itself.

Step 3: The fun begins here as you glue or tack on the embellishments you have collected. Use special paper, cutouts, or stickers to create depth and character on your board. Include areas to write new ideas such as a chalkboard or notepad on or near your corkboard to serve as reminders.

Sometimes our human minds can’t comprehend all the good things our good God has in store for us. First Corinthians 2:9 says: “…Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him” (KJV). These creative tools can serve as a source of encouragement for you and will allow you to share with your friends and family how God is manifesting His presence in your life. Creating a dream or inspiration board with a friend or even at a girl party can be a lot of fun. Invite someone over and work together to bring your dreams and inspirations to life. God has a masterpiece plan for your life!
