DIY Wall Art
If you’re one of those people who collects shoeboxes because you know you can use them for some sort of DIY project, you’re in luck. This first example of inspirational DIY decor uses shoebox lids, chalkboard paint, white paint, a hole puncher, rope, and brushes. Simply paint the shoebox lids with the chalkboard paint and then let them dry. Use the white paint to make a border. Use chalk or more white paint to write inspirational words or phrases that will help you keep your New Year’s resolution. Determine how you’d like to arrange your inspirational wall art and then use the hole punch and rope to hang up your DIY decor.
DIY Vision Board
Vision boards work for many people because as you look at your vision board throughout the day, the images and words will remain in your subconscious. Then your brain will work on making those subconscious thoughts and images a reality. The great thing about vision boards is they are completely personal to you. You can make your vision board out of any material – a Pinterest board, a cork board, an entire wall – and add the images that you want to be in your future. If you’re looking to lose a little weight, use a picture of yourself a few pounds ago. Establish your goals and resolutions, find images that represent your goals, and then arrange them anyway you want. Make sure your vision board is displayed somewhere you’ll be able to see it throughout the day.
DIY Dream Jar
If you can’t fit a vision board on your walls, consider making a dream jar instead. A dream jar is a jar (usually a mason jar, but you can use any jar you want) filled with items that symbolize your hopes, dreams, and goals for the new year. If one of your goals is to cook more, you could put a fork or a spoon in there. Or, if you wanted to be more creative, you could put a pencil or paintbrush in your dream jar. The items don’t have to make sense to anyone but you, and the best part about a dream jar is that you can keep it on your desk or by your bed so you’ll always be able to see it.
Why not decorate your dream jar while you're at it?
