Desktop Wallpaper Mood Board Template for Canva

How to Make a Mood Board

I’m so excited to give you this Desktop Wallpaper Mood Board template for Canva!

One of my favorite ways to keep my brand style and inspiration top of mind is to set my mood board as my desktop wallpaper. (I used to have one physically hanging in my office on my bulletin board, but one of my cats had a delightful habit of pulling it down, piece by piece… I’ve found this to be a little easier to maintain!)


First, start here and read my strategies for creating a successful mood board (one that’s pretty AND useful at the same time).


Click here to head over to Canva and access the template file!

Canva is a free online design tool. If you don’t already have an account, you’ll have to sign up.

After you sign up, please read the instructions on the first slide and make sure you create a copy of the template! This will add a copy of the template to your personal account. If you edit it directly, it will change the template file I’m sharing here publicly (awkward).

Once you have you copy open, you can delete the instructions page as well as the sample mood board I created.

You will want to upload your mood board images, and then you simply drag and drop them into the grid!

Add your brand values and keywords (update these to be in your brand fonts), as well as your color palette.

Have so much fun with this!!
