How to Draw a Snowman

Easy Snowman Drawing Tutorial

How to draw a snowman tutorial

A snowman might seem like an easy Christmas drawing, but it has a lot of different components to get right. 

The hat, the scarf, the twig arms. 

And don’t even start on the face; it’s so hard to get a face that’s meant to be made of inanimate objects to look friendly.

Even the way you draw the big snowballs for the body is tricky; if you don’t stack them right or shape them correctly, they end up just looking like 3 circles on top of each other! 

If you need help creating your snowman illustration, this post will show you how to draw a snowman easily. 

It’s aimed towards beginners, so it should be easy to follow along with.

What You Will Need to Draw a Snowman

Here is a list of what you need to draw a snowman

  1. Something to draw onto. This can be paper, a sketchbook or a journal.
  2. A pencil to plan out your shapes. 
  3. An eraser to rub out the pencil markings. 
  4. Fineliner pens (black is what is recommended)
  5. Colours if you want to add colour to your snowman drawing. 

That’s everything you need to draw a snowman!

How to Draw an Easy Snowman – Step by Step

Below is a step by step tutorial on how to draw a snowman:

Step 1: To draw the snowman’s body, start by drawing two oval overlapping each other. Make them slightly wider than tall, and make sure the bottom one is bigger than the top one.

Then draw a small, round circle in pencil overlapping the top circle at the very top. This will be the snowman’s head.

How to draw a snowman step 1 - Draw 3 circles on top of each other vertically

Step 2: Using a pencil, draw a rectangle on top of the very top circle to mark out the snowman’s hat. Add two diagonal lines in pencil from the middle circle; these will be the arms.

Snowman drawing step 2 - Draw a rectangle on top and two straight lines from the centre circle

Step 3: To draw the stick arms, go around the pencil lines using a fineliner. Draw two small branches at the top for the hands.

Snowman doodle step 3 - Draw stick arms in fineliner

Step 4: Around the middle pencil circle, draw a scarf in fineliner. This isn’t essential, but will help to keep your Snowman cozy!

How to draw a snowman step 4 - Draw a fineliner scarf

Step 5: Draw over the rectangle at the top using a fineliner to create a hat. You can add a thin oval at the bottom for the brim, and add some details to the hat such as a band around the base.

Snowman drawing step 5 - Draw fineliner hat

Step 6: Now you have drawn some of the details on the snowman, go around the pencil circles in fineliner. It is recommended to draw the lower circles slightly square-ish, not a perfect circle; this will help it seem more realistic.

How to draw a snowman step 6 - Draw fineliner circles for body

Step 7: Now that you have the body complete, you need to add a face! You can draw a triangle in the middle of the top circle as a carrot nose, a smile underneath, and two eyes. 

To draw a cute Snowman, you should keep the features of the face close together and slightly lower down on the head. This will make it seem more childlike. Be careful not to make the triangle for the nose too large or crooked; you can tilt it up slightly to make it look cuter. You can also draw on a line smile rather than the classic snowman smile made out of pieces of coal.

Step 8: Add some colour; black for the hat, brown for the twig arms, orange for the nose and red for the scarf is traditional. But you can make your snowman whatever colours you want!

  • Christmas tree cover page design for December.  
  • As doodles in your December weekly spreads. 
  • On a Christmas doodles page.

You can create trackers (such as habit trackers, mood trackers, etc) and include Christmas tree doodles in your designs; e.g you can draw 31 trees on a page for a mood tracker for December, and add different colours for different moods. You can use different shades of green for the trees to mean different moods, or add baubles on the trees, and use different colous for different moods (e.g yellow Christmas baubles for happy, red for angry, blue for sad, etc).

What a cute December spread!

Repeat patterns are a great idea for a double page spread, as you can repeat your doodle as many (or as little) times as you’d like across your pages.

Then you can keep your repeats identical if you want to keep your patterns consistent, or you can get creative with the different versions for each repeat.

These cozy sweaters are each decorated uniquely, and the combination of different colours and patterns makes the spread so lively and fun!

I always love a doodle inspired theme, and December is the perfect month to create one, because there are so many Christmassy doodles to choose from! 

This December cover page is a perfect example, as there are so many different Christmas doodles included; the snowman, the stocking, the candy cane, the snow globe… The list goes on! 

I also love the use of colour; don’t feel you have to add colour to all your imagery, as you can just add colour here and there, like Hayley has done with the red to add pops of colour to the page.

This is a really sweet double page spread for December. 

I love the use of Christmas doodles dotted about the spread. 

A doodle spread is a great idea for anyone who just likes to draw freely for their spreads. 

And there are so many different Christmas related doodles; you can just fill the pages with all the Christmassy doodles you want! 

The quote on the right page, which reads “The holidays are what you make them” is also a fun touch.

Nature Inspired December Bullet Journal Themes

People hear December and instantly think of bright Christmassy colours. 

But a December spread with minimal colour is a really unique idea! 

This spread by Eleonore is a beautiful example; it has such a cold, wintery vibe.

Not using colour doesn’t have to mean that your spread is black and white with no detail either.

The varying shades of grey used for the trees really helps to layer the image and create depth. 

The darker shade of grey for the “December” header really makes it stand out on the page too! 

Floral Bullet Journal Theme for December

Flowers aren’t an obvious choice for a winter bullet journal spread. 

But a poinsettia theme for December is a great idea, as it’s a flower that’s often associated with Christmas. 

The spread above is a beautiful example; the flower is so large and spreads across the double page, creating a real statement. 

The red poinsettia flower itself is vibrant, and it’s a great theme idea if you want to add a bit of colour to your winter bujo spreads.

Wreath December Bujo Theme

If you’re creating a Christmas inspired spread for your December page, there are of course classic Christmas colours that spring to mind; gold, green, and red are a good example. 

However, if you want to add more colour but keep to that Christmas colour theme, you can use multiple shades of a single colour to add depth to your imagery. 

This wreath themed spread uses a number of shades of green, from light green to a deep emerald green, and rather than the shades clashing they actually compliment each other. 

The background leaves drawn in fineliner are a beautiful detail that help to add layers to the image, but without making the page seem too full.

This is another Christmas wreath inspired spread for December (with some poinsettia flowers for extra Christmas points!). 

I like the simplicity of this illustration, as its minimal style allows the December header to really pop. 

A cute idea for a wreath is to draw doodles in a circle with a gap in the middle, to imply the wreath shape.  

That way you can turn any of your Christmas doodles into a Christmassy wreath!

Gingerbread man wreath anyone?

Christmas Tree Themed December Spreads

This is another beautiful example of a repeat pattern December bujo spread. 

Christmas trees are a great idea for a December theme, as the vibrant green will add some life to your bullet journal in winter! 

And you can create some really cute patterns on your trees. 

I also love the smaller details of the mistletoe and sparkles, which help to fill the remaining white space.

Rather than the usual decorated tree, this fir tree in its initial stage of being driven home is a cool idea for a December bullet journal spread. 

Brown paper has also been layered on the page, and helps the illustration on the white paper stand out. 

The quote at the bottom is also a really nice touch!

Typography Themed December Spreads

The text in your spread doesn’t have to be plain.

In fact, it can be the main focus of it! 

Below are some stunning typography focused December bujo spreads;

This is such a bold spread! 

Don’t be afraid to go all out with your designs, and really fill the page with your December header if you want to make a statement.

In this example, the typography goes right up to the edge of the page on both sides; it’s almost as though it can’t be contained in the journal!  

I also love the use of deep red for a Christmassy feel, and the grey shadows add a 3D effect, making the header seem to jump out the page at you.

This is another beautiful typography based spread for December. 

Colour is a great way to make your text stand out, as you can use vibrant but contrasting colours to really make a statement.

The colour in the example above has been layered really well, as the black outline of the text against the white background really makes the letters pop!

And the bright red and layered with silver on top adds a Christmassy vibe to the page.

Cartoon Inspired Bullet Journal Spreads

Snoopy themed December bujo spread
Credit to @do_it_toi_meme

This is such a sweet December bullet journal spread! 

The iconic Snoopy illustration style is recreated very well, and despite it being simple, the block colours and font together with the imagery make the spread really vibrant.  

There are lots of Christmas illustration styles you can recreate in your spreads.

The Snowman film, the Grinch illustrations, Rankin/Bass Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer… The list goes on!

How To Draw A Leaf For Beginners

What You Will Need to Draw Leaves

Before you start doodling, it’s important to make sure you have the right supplies! 

Below is a list of the tools you will need to create your leaf doodles:

  1. Paper, a sketchbook, or a bullet journal to draw your leaves onto. 
  2. A pencil to plan out your shapes. 
  3. An eraser to rub out the pencil markings. 
  4. A fineliner (black is suggested, but you can use any colour)
  5. Colours if you want to add colour to your leaves; these can be coloured pencils, markers, or even watercolours.

That’s everything you will need to create your different leaf illustrations. 

Leaf Drawing Tutorials Step by Step

Below are different tutorials that will show you how to create various types of leaves. 

They break down what you need to do step by step, so it’s easy to follow and create your leaf doodles! 

How to Draw a Horse Chestnut Leaf

Horse chestnut leaves come from the same type of trees that grow conkers in Autumn! 

Its leaves have a cool shape that resemble a 5 point star. 

Check out how to draw a horse chesnut leaf step by step below:

Step 1: Using a pencil, draw a dot in the middle. Then draw three lines going through the dot; make the longest one go down the middle at an almost vertical angle, and the other two closer to horizontal.

Draw a dot and 3 lines intersecting using a pencil

Step 2: Again using a pencil, draw 5 smooth leaf outlines around the top 5 lines. Leave the bottom line for a stalk, and draw the outlines from small at the bottom to big (with the largest outline being at the top).

Draw the leaf outlines using a pencil

Step 3: Using a fineliner, go over the pencil leaf outlines. Make the edges slightly jagged, and the tip of each leaf more pointed. You can also create an outline for the stalk; start thin, before thickening it out slightly at the end.

Go over the leaf outline in a fineliner

Step 4: Again using a fineliner, go over the pencil lines to create a middle vein for each leaf. Go right to the tip before fading the vein out.

Draw a middle vein in fineliner on each leaf

Step 5: Use the fineliner to add smaller horizontal veins along each leaf. Take them right to the leaf outline, and try to make them evenly spaced.

Draw smaller veins in fineliner onto each leaf

Step 6: Rub out the pencil outlines you originally created.

Step 7: Add some colour, and you’re done!

Add colour to your leaf, and you've finished your Horse Chesnut leaf drawing

Below is a visual recap on each step:

Full tutorial on how to draw a Horse Chesnut Leaf step by step

Oak Leaf Drawing Tutorial

Oak leaves are another great type of leaf to learn how to doodle, as they’re very commonly associated with the Autumn months. 

Below is a step by step drawing tutorial on how to draw an oak leaf:

Step 1: Using a pencil, draw a teardrop outline at a horizontal angle.

Draw a teardrop shape in pencil

Step 2: Split the teardrop in half by creating a smooth pencil line; start from the point, and draw right through.

Draw a pencil line down the middle to split the teardrop in half

Step 3: Draw a thin pencil oval shape in the top half of the teardrop.

Draw a thin oval in the top half of the teardrop shape in pencil

Step 4: Draw a similar sized oval in the lower half of the teardrop (again using a pencil).

Draw a thin oval pencil in the bottom half of the teardrop

Step 5: Add a slightly smaller set of ovals above the initial two in pencil.

Draw two ovals in pencil above the initial two

Step 6: Then add two smaller sets of pencil ovals below the initial ovals, making them smaller the closer to the point of the teardrop they get.

Draw four ovals in pencil below

Step 7: In the remaining space in the teardrop, draw a pencil circle at the top and bottom.

Draw small pencil circles in the top and bottom of the teardrop

Step 8: Using the pencil ovals and circles as guidelines, draw around them in fineliner to create the outline of the oak leaf. You can also add the stalk in using fineliner here.

Using a fineliner pen, go around the shapes to create the outline of your oak leaf

Step 9: Rub out the pencil markings, and draw a middle vein down the center of the leaf in fineliner.

Rub out the pencil putline and draw a middle vein with a fineliner pen down the leaf

Step 10: Draw smaller veins along the center of each branch of the leaf in fineliner. Go from the middle vein up to the edge of the leaf, along the center of each oval.

Draw small veins with a pen onto the oak leaf

Step 11: Now draw tiny lines from the middle vein in fineliner, but don’t make them as long.

Now add tiny fineliner veins to the oak leaf

Step 12: Add some colour to your leaf if you wish; I added green at the center, and then a bit of yellow at the tips and for the stem of the leaf.

Add colour to your oak leaf drawing

And your oak leaf is finished!

Below is a summary of the steps taken to complete the oak leaf drawing:

Beech trees are a popular tree in the UK (they’re considered the queen of British trees).

They typically have purple leaves, but some beech trees are called copper beech, and have deep purple leaves instead. 

Below is a drawing tutorial for doodling a beech leaf: 

Step 1: Using a pencil, draw an upside down teardrop (with the point at the top).

Step 2: Split the teardrop in half with a pencil line (draw from the point at the top right down the middle).

Step 5: Rub out the pencil markings, and add a stalk at the bottom of the leaf with a fineliner.

Draw a beech leaf step 5 - draw a stalk

Step 6: Using the fineliner, draw smaller veins on the leaf. Start at the main middle vein, and draw them at a horizontal angle out to the edge of the leaf. Try to keep these veins evenly spaced, and increase the angle so it’s closer to vertical the closer to the tip of the leaf you get.

Draw a beech leaf step 6 - draw fineliner veins

Step 7: Add some colour; I chose green for the leaf, and a light brown for the stalk.

Draw a beech leaf step 7 - add colour

November Bullet Journal Spread Inspiration

Below are some great November bullet journal spreads from Instagram.

This bear themed November spread is the perfect way to start off the list! 

I love the simplicity; the bear illustration is so beautiful that it’s all the decoration that’s really needed for this page. 

Spreads that incorporate animals are great for a November bullet journal theme, as there are so many cute animals to choose from; foxes, squirrels, hedgehogs, bears, owls… the list goes on! 

You can create a spread solely focusing on one animal, like Tristan has done here, or add as many furry animals to the page as you wish.

This nature inspired November spread by Ivana is so sweet! 

This feminine colour palette (which I love) is not what you’d typically think of for a November theme.

But thinking outside the box and creating spreads inspired by things you wouldn’t necessarily expect is a great way to make your monthly theme stand out. 

And this spread with fun colours is a great example, as if you’re sick of Autumnal colours by the time November comes, you can switch it up a little and add some warmth to a colder month with a brighter colour palette. 

The quote on the left page, which reads “to plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow”, is also a lovely touch with deep meaning; that it’s worth putting in the effort for some things now even if you won’t see results immediately, and to do so with hope that you may in the future.

This November bujo spread by Annie is inspired by a number of different elements from nature. 

The trees and falling leaves are beautifully drawn into the space of the antlers, alongside a quote that reads “cherches moi du côté sauvage” which is “look for me on the wild side” in English (please note I do not speak French, so take that with a pinch of salt!).  

Don’t be afraid to combine different theme elements together, as it can work really well to create a really quirky and memorable spread (like it does here!). 

Weather Inspired November Bujo Themes

The weather is quite a personal bullet journal theme idea, as it can be different depending on where you live. 

Below are some November bullet journal themes inspired by the weather:

I love this November spread by Jen. 

The colours are so on theme for November, and there is a nice contrast with the warmer reads, yellows and oranges against the darker grey. 

The layered check patterns help to really fill up the pages and make them full of life, but the clever use of white space around the check patterns makes sure they’re not too overpowering. 

If you want to liven up your spreads, try adding some fun patterns like Jen has done here; they will really add something special to your designs!

Windy November Bullet Journal Theme

This November cover page by Sasy really captures the November winds.

Wind can be hard to show visually, but I love the way Sasy has drawn it here.

All the leaves being blown across the page also add to that windy vibe, and the umbrella being blown away is a really fun touch!

Mushroom Themed Bullet Journal Spread

Mushroom illustrations always have such a magical feel, and this November spread is no exception.

It’s got an added touch of Autumn vibes with the acorns and oak leaves surrounding the mushrooms. 

Don’t feel you have to focus on one topic for your spread; you can take a more general theme idea, such as “nature”, and combine different elements from that umbrella theme idea.

Floral Themed November BuJo Spread

Flowers aren’t the obvious choice for an Autumn bujo spread.

But Griffin has used cool toned colours like blue and silver to add a colder feel to their creation, making it on trend for the colder months of the year.

You can think about how you add colour to add to your theme, such as using warm shades like orange and red for the beginning of Autumn, but then switching to colder colours like Grifiin has as the weather becomes cooler.

I also love how simple and elegant the cover page is; all it needs is the beautiful flower doodle with the November header, and the page is complete!

Here is a more abstract floral inspired November bujo spread. 

Created by Kae, I again love the use of the colour tones such as grey to capture the colder weather as we approach winter. 

If you’re not very confident with drawing, abstract is a great style to try for your bullet journal spreads, as it’s quite forgiving; you’re not trying to recreate something exactly as it appears, so it’s more open to your interpretation (and therefore harder to get wrong!).

Autumn Leaf Themed November bullet journal cover page

This November header is so beautiful! 

The way the birch trees are placed really makes you feel like you are taking a walk down a path on an Autumn day; you can almost feel the fallen leaves crunching beneath your feet.

The use of colour helps to add depth, as the warm coloured leaves really pop against the darker birch trees, and really make them stand out. 

I also love how simple the leaves are in this spread, as they’re just small dashes of colour, and show you don’t need to be adding too much detail to create beautiful imagery.

This is a more abstract leaf themed November cover page by Pia. 

Its minimalistic style allows you to really appreciate the unique design; thanks to the creative use of space around the middle, the eye is automatically drawn to the center quote and illustration on each page. 

The different shades of brown layered beneath the fineliner illustration helps to add depth, whilst keeping that minimal style. 

When you’re creating your spreads, consider the font you are using for any text. Here, the choice of script font for the November header adds to that elegant feel.

People think of bullet journal spreads and think of fineliners and coloured pencils, but it doesn’t have to be!  

This spread is very literal in its use of materials; if it’s a spread based on Autumn leaves, why not actually include some in the design?! 

Don’t be afraid to push the boat out, and use some unique materials in your spreads; you can even stick things in to add layers and create texture and depth to your spreads.

Just be careful if you use heavier materials like paint or ink that the paper in your bullet journal can take it, as you don’t want any ghosting or bleeding (not sure what ghosting or bleeding is in bullet journal terms? It’s explained in detail in this post on the best bullet journal pens!).

I love that you can take a theme idea of Autumn leaves and see so many different interpretations.

Here is another beautiful take on a leaf inspired November bullet journal cover page.

I enjoy how uncomplicated yet beautiful this cover page really is; the tree illustration is quite simple, but together with the vibrant colours for the leaves, the tree really pops and stands out on the page. 

The reds, oranges and yellow shades all layered really give it texture and life!

Food Inspired BuJo Spread for November

Jam themed November bullet journal cover illustration

This jam themed November bullet journal page is awesome! 

Created by Joyce, it’s such a cute idea for a theme; I love how the text for the spread has been written onto the labels. 

Incorporating any text or writing you need to include in your spread into an illustration is an easy and subtle way to include it. 

You could also use it as a theme idea for other months; for example, for December you could draw some Christmas cookies, and write the text “Merry Christmas” on the cookies. 

Random November Bullet Journal Spread Themes

These November spreads didn’t fit into a clear November category, but I wanted to include them anyway as they’re so good! 

Check them out below:

I couldn’t put this spread into just one November themed category, as it fitted so many! 

Food, hot drinks, the blustery November weather; this spread really has so many elements of Autumn included. 

If you don’t have one theme idea you want to stick to for your monthly spreads, don’t be afraid to create a page of drawings inspired by the month. 

A fun challenge would actually be to create a cover page including as many different doodles related to the month as possible.

It’s a great idea if you’re not one to plan your pages thoroughly, as you can just be really creative; it’s a chance to doodle to your heart’s content!

You can also include drawings of things that are personal to you. 

For example, if your family has bonfire night traditions, you can draw things that represent them on your November cover page.

What a beautiful November cover page! 

This illustration incorporates some November themes we’ve seen previously, such as windy weather, autumn leaves, and mushrooms. 

But the addition of the hot air balloons is so quirky! And makes the spread really unique. 

I’m also a big fan of drawings that have a border, but the art breaks through that border; it’s a real statement, and adds a lot of character to the page.

Star Inspired November bullet journal cover page
Credit to @mikaelazarifis

Created by Mikaela, this November page is so magical. 

The stars spreading across the page really helps to fill the space, and the way they go right up to the edge of the page, you can almost believe the stars are spilling over onto the next page. 

The dots also add a depth; they’re a great way to add detail to your drawings and really fill the space.

(Side note: I don’t recommend them if you’re pressed for time however, as although they look amazing, they can be quite time consuming to create!).

November typography double page bujo spread

If you think of a spread without illustrations or doodles, you might think it will look a bit plain… But these pages proves otherwise! 

This November cover spread shows how much you can do with fonts alone. 

It’s visually exciting, with so many different styles of lettering included. Your eyes really don’t know where to stop, as there’s so much to look at! 

So if you’re not a fan of doodling, don’t feel you have to. You can totally make a really full and vibrant spread using typography only (as this November spread shows!).

November double page spread with quote
Credit to @mavidoesart

This is such a quirky November cover page! 

Created by Mavi, this spread includes a line from a poem by Emily Dickerson. It reads; 

“Because I could not stop for Death

He kindly stopped for me

The Carriage held but just Ourselves

And Immortality.”

The calligraphy is so intricate; Mavi said that it accentuates the musicality of Dickinson’s words, and I totally agree! 

I also like how the quote spills out from the brown paper at the centre and overlaps onto the white, which makes it seem almost alive and untamed.

Booked themed November cover page
Credit to @mystic_asba

This November bujo spread by Asba has such a vintage vibe.

When sticking material into your spreads, it can be easy to overdo it and add too much. 

But the layering in this spread is really well done; the different papers used create texture and depth, but without being overbearing or distracting from the main points of the spread (the imagery and text). 

I also love the idea of including a page from a book. 

You could recreate this with a page from your favourite book, or a book that’s relevant to the month (e.g a Christmas Carol for a December spread). 

And if you were looking for something to add that wasn’t text based, you could add pages from magazines, or pictures from books instead.

You can also check out Asba’s Youtube channel here:

As we’re getting to the end of the year, I hope you’re still finding these monthly bullet journal ideas helpful. 

I really enjoy seeing the different artistic approaches, and how even though they are all for the same month of November, each spread is so unique!  

And I hope they inspire you for your November journal.

Nature Inspired October Bullet Journal Themes

With the urge to cozy up indoors as the days start to get colder, people forget that some of the best parts of Autumn are the changes in nature! 

Below are some beautiful October themes inspired by nature:

Autumn Leaves Bujo Theme

Seeing the leaves change colour is one of my favoruite parts of Autumn, and this October cover page captures it beautifully. 

The colour palette is perfect; the majority of the leaves are brown, but the greens here and there hint that we’re not in the middle of Autumn just yet! 

I also love the typography for the header “October”. The pumpkin O is a cute touch!

This pumpkin patch theme is so fun! 

The scarecrow doodle is super quirky, and adds a unique touch on a pumpkin theme spread. 

Don’t be afraid to think outside the box with your spreads, and put your own spin on themes. 

Remember it’s your bullet journal, so you can do whatever you want with it!

Above is another pumpkin inspired spread. 

Adding a small drawing around dates for each day is a subtle way to continue your theme through your spreads for the month. 

You can change up each doodle, copy each drawing exactly, or make a subtle change such as rotating the doodle slightly like Tracy has done. 

(And if you want to save time, don’t be afraid to use some stickers for your dates!).

Plant Themed Bullet Journal Page

So there’s no escaping the fact that there’s less greenery outside as Autumn rolls in. 

But that doesn’t mean you can’t add some to your bullet journal! 

I love this indoor plants theme, as it’s such a unique October cover page idea.

The greens and other vibrant colours really add some excitement to an Autumn month. 

I also think this is a great theme idea to recreate, as you can draw your own house plants (and if you’re a bit of a crazy plant lady, you’ll have plenty of inspiration to use!).

Halloween Bullet Journal themes

If you’re a lover of Halloween, your October journal is the perfect chance to show this! 

There are so many Halloween inspired themes to try, and you can check some awesome Halloween themed bujo spreads out below:

Spider Inspired October Bullet Journal Theme

A lot of people go over the top for Halloween, but sometimes, less is more! 

This spider themed October cover page by Kellie Ann is so subtle, thanks to its minimalistic style and colour.  

If you want to keep your spread minimal, try doing line drawings, and add one or two different colours only like Kellie Ann has done here. 

You can still create a lot of depth and fill the page, but without overcomplicating it! 

Cat Bujo Theme For October

Halloween doesn’t always have to mean scary – this cat themed October spread is so cute! 

If you want to create a Halloween inspired bujo spread but don’t want it to be scary, try taking a theme idea (like cats, pumpkins, zombies, etc) and drawing it in a cute style. 

If you’re not familiar with it, try searching “Kawaii” for some inspiration on cute drawing styles. 
You can also check out how _jimash_ created this theme in this Youtube video here.

Ghost October Bullet Journal

This is another super cute Halloweed cover page! 

Again, cuteness isn’t the obvious choice for Halloween, but it’s a great way to add a unique touch to your bullet journal spreads. 

It’s also a good option if you’re not a fan of scary stuff. 

Also consider how you’re using colours if you’re going for a sweet style. 

Gentler colours such as pastels or faded, lighter shades will help to add a softer touch to your spreads, like Nguyen Duc Minh Tam has done here.

Ghost October Bullet Journal

Having said all that about cuteness, if you want to create a scary bujo theme, Halloween is the time for it! 

This spread by Hardika is awesome – the Haunted House illustration is so well done, and I love the splash of colour with the neon green and orange here and there to brighten up the page. 

Using darker colours with lots of shading like Hardika has done here will add a sense of eeriness to your drawings. 

(But don’t be afraid to also add some colour if you want to!)

This floral September spread is so sweet! 

This spread is really pushing the last of the warm, summer vibes, before the colder months start to take over and the leaves start to brown. 

The little ladybugs are also so cute!

This is another beautiful nature inspired September cover page. 

Layering colours and doodles is a great way to add a lot of depth to your cover page, like Larissa has done here. 

You can slowly build up your layers, and decide when you think your page is looking full enough as you go along.

Mushroom Themed Bullet Journal Spreads for September

I love mushroom doodles; there’s something so magical about them! 

Check out these beautiful mushroom inspired bujo spreads from Instagram below:

This mushroom double page spread is a wonderful recreation of @lalipop.lettering’s work by Fiona.

The mushroom doodles are so quirky, and to put them in a ring to create a mushroom circle is genius! 

The colour palette is perfect for September; browns, reds and oranges are classic autumn colours, but the yellow adds some unexpected vibrant touches.

Here is another mushroom inspired spread for September. 

Created by Haleigh, I love the simplicity of this spread; the beautiful mushroom drawing in the center of the page and the “September” title in minimalist font is all the cover page really needs.

The “Welcome Autumn” quote on the first page is also a really nice touch, especially written on the brown paper to add some texture to the spread.

Coffee themed Bullet Journal Spreads for September

Okay, so coffee isn’t necessarily a September specific theme (especially if you’re a coffee fan like me, and you’re drinking it all year round!). 

But hot drinks are definitely a great September theme idea, and no doubt your feeds are filling up with Pumpkin Spice everything (did you know Starbucks releases Pumpkin Spice Latte at the end of August?!). 

Check out these coffee inspired bullet journal themes below:

This September cover page is minimal yet still full, thanks to the detail and shading in the coffee illustration. 

Adding detail and shading to your doodles is a great way to really fill the page up without having to actually draw more images. 

Especially adding colour – it really helps to make the page pop!

Above is another beautiful coffee inspired September bujo spread. 

Remember, you don’t have to stick to one shade of colour in your spreads; here Eri has used a range of browns and even orange here and there to create a real warm and cozy vibe. 

I also love the quote at the top of the page, which reads “maybe she’s born with it, maybe it is caffeine”. It’s a funny twist on the classic Maybelline ads!

Desk Bullet Journal Theme

Whether it’s back to school, college, or university, September means returning to education for a lot of people. 

So I had to include a spread that was relevant to that! 

Check out this super cute desk themed bujo spread below:

This theme idea of a desk is such a cool idea; you could easily put your own spin on it, and create a spread inspired by your own workspace. 

I also love the little post-its drawn onto the grid board, including the small note to stay positive. What a great way to add some reminders to your spread!

The pastel colour palette is so sweet, and a great way to add something unexpected to an Autumn spread. 

Random September Bullet Journal Spreads

I always find such beautiful bullet journal spreads that I simply have to share them, even if they don’t have a clear category. 

So below are some September bujo spreads that didn’t fit under any of the previous themes, but are too good not to share!

Teddy Bear Picnic September bullet journal theme idea

This September spread by Annie is adorable.

When I first saw this page I thought the images were doodles, but believe it or not they’re washis! 

Washis and stickers are such a good idea if you’re not one for drawing (or even if you are, but just want to save a bit of time when creating your spreads!). 

There are so many beautiful stickers out there, you’re sure to find some that suit your theme. 
You can also check out this post on the best bullet journal supplies to find some sticker and washi tape recommendations!

September dreamcatcher inspired bullet journal cover page
Credit to @manais_fairy

This is such a unique dreamcatcher themed spread. 

The dreamcatcher is not shaped like the typical round ones, but instead has been drawn in the shape of a crescent moon, which adds to the mystical vibe. 

This theme would be easy to carry for spreads throughout the rest of September.

Some colourful feather doodles and sparkles here and there around your spread, and it’s on theme! 

Pastel September cover page idea
Credit to @mavidoesart

This September spread by Mavi is a beautiful recreation of work by @juliannedoodles

The colour palette is so sweet (if you can’t tell by now, I’m a massive fan of pastel colours). 

I love the layering of the different doodles, including the cotton candy-like clouds drawn in front of the middle illustration; it really makes the page pop! 

Remember, if you’re really into drawing, use your cover page to draw to your heart’s content. All you need is a header for the month, and the rest of the space can be for drawing.

Or better yet, you can include the title for the month in your doodle, like Mavi has done here! 

September Bullet Journal Themes Roundup

After months of summer spreads, I hope these September bujo themes have been helpful in kicking off your first Autumn bullet journal spread of the year. 

And if you’re a bit sad that summer is over, hopefully this post has shown you all the things you’ve got to look forward to in Autumn!

August Bullet Journal Spread Inspiration

I find lists of bullet journal ideas helpful, but there’s nothing quite like seeing some theme ideas in action. 

So below is a roundup of some August bullet journal spreads from Instagram!

Nature inspired Bullet Journal Spreads

Nature is a great idea for a bullet journal theme for August. 

The sky is blue, the sun is shining bright, the grass is green and flowers are blooming. 

(Can you tell I love summer?!). 

Below are some amazing bullet journal spreads inspired by nature: 

August bullet journal cover page - desert illustration

What a beautiful illustration! 

Created by @honeynfawn, this drawing is a really unique, quirky concept. 

It’s perfect for August; it’s almost as if you can feel the heat of the desert when looking at it! 

If you’re someone who loves drawing, you can totally use a cover page as a space to be creatively free. 

A cover page can literally just have the title for the month in (like the above example), and then whatever you want to draw alongside it! 

Panda themed August bullet journal cover page

I love this Panda themed cover page by Valentina. 

Similar to the previous image, here is another example of a cover page for August that consists of the August header and a drawing. 

If you look through her other work on Instagram, Valentina is definitely a talented illustrator.

Her lettering is beautiful, and her drawings have a definitive style; she can really bring things to life!

So if you’re a creative person who loves to draw, a cover page for the month is the perfect place to show that off!

The beach is such a good idea for a summer bujo spread, and this is a perfect is example!

I love the way it’s split between the sand and the sea; there’s real attention to detail, with the border colour being split to match the background. 

This is an idea that would be easy to replicate, with shells, starfish, maybe even a beach umbrella on the sand at the top, and then lots of sea creatures in the ocean at the bottom of the pages!

Sea Themed Spread for Summer

Above is a cool example of a sea themed spread for August. 

The layered border adds texture to the pages, and the use of space draws the eye to the center where the August header and fish drawings are. 

I also love the quote that’s included, which is “individually we are one drop, together we are an ocean”. 

It works so well with the theme! 

Floral Summer BuJo Spread for Summer

I love a floral theme for a summer bullet journal spread. 

Below are some beautiful floral bujo spreads:

This floral themed cover page for August is so elegant! 

I love the use of stickers here; sometimes you mention stickers and bullet journal-ers are put off, because they can be tacky. 

But there are some really sophisticated ones out there (like the beautiful floral stickers used here!). 

So don’t be afraid to use stickers in your spread, as they can really help to make your spread look good (and also save time).

Sunflower Bullet Journal Themes

Sunflowers are a great flower to create a theme around for an August bullet journal spread. 

They’re so vibrant, and are certain to bring warmth to any summer layout! 

Here are some sunflower bullet journal spreads from Instagram:

Above is a beautiful double page spread for August that uses lots of different theme ideas alongside sunflowers, including bees, bananas, and even Lilo & Stitch! 

If you’re not one for drawing, you can still create a stunning bullet journal spread; use stickers and washi tape in your spreads to create lots of texture, just like the spread pictured above.

Here is another beautiful bullet journal spread inspired by sunflowers, but this time using mostly coloured pens.

Whereas in the previous spread the sunflowers were subtly mixed in with other theme ideas, this cover page is really all about sunflowers, no question!

They’re bold and beautiful, and create real summer vibes.  

A great idea for a cover page is to take your theme idea and draw it very large – it’s a simple way to really fill a page up.

Then if you have good colouring pens (you can see the best pens to add colour to a bullet journal spread here), you can colour these large drawings in; this will allow you to add plenty of colour to the page. 

Just make sure you have plenty of coloured pens to use!

Butterfly BuJo Theme

Butterflies make for such magical bullet journal spreads. 

The spread pictured above is no exception; mixed with the mushroom illustrations and details in the background, it creates a really mystical vibe! 

I also love the warm colour palette for the butterfly and flower. 

It’s important to consider the colours you are using when creating your bullet journal designs, as they can really add to the atmosphere of your spreads.

For an August bullet journal theme, it’s a great idea to use bright and warm colours; think sunshine yellow, vivid green grass, etc.

These aren’t exactly butterflies, but they’re so beautiful that they come pretty close! 

Above is an elegant August cover page inspired by Luna moths. 

Similar to previous examples, Maureen has created the cover page so it consists of just the “August” title for the month, and then has used the rest of the space to draw the beautiful Luna moths. 

Moths aren’t the obvious choice for a nature theme, but these are absolutely stunning! 

And help to establish a theme colour of green for any spreads for the rest of the month.

Succulent Bullet Journal Spread

I’m a bit of a crazy plant lady at heart, so I love a bullet journal theme that focuses on plants.

Check out this cool succulent inspired August cover page below:

It’s a great theme to carry on throughout the month as well, as you can draw different plants hanging in numerous ways (hanging in baskets, spilling over their containers, macrame, etc).  

I also enjoy the simplicity of this page. 

It’s a perfect example of if you don’t want to fill up the page, you don’t have to; the space around your creation is just as important!

Food Inspired BuJo Spread

Here’s a super cute August mood and habit tracker inspired by food.  

The graph layout for the mood tracker is SUCH a good idea – I don’t know why more people don’t use this layout! 

It makes it so easy to see the ups and downs in mood once the tracker has been completed. 

Plus these dessert stickers are awesome!

Bicycle Bullet Journal Theme

Cycling is another cool bullet journal theme idea for August, as it’s the perfect weather for bike rides (even if it does get a little bit hot!)

Above is a beautiful bicycle themed cover page for August. 

It’s simple but super sweet, and is everything about it is summer; the sunny yellow, the cute flowers, etc. 

Themes that have a main focus and then smaller details allow you to decide which elements you carry through to the rest of the spreads for the month. 

For example, Julia has used both a bike illustration as the centerpiece of the page, and then also added little flower doodles and splashes of yellow around it. 

She can carry the theme throughout the rest of the August spreads by either drawing more cycling themed illustrations, or adding the flower doodles and hints of yellow if she wants to keep it simple!

Travel Bullet Journal August Spread

Plenty of people are enjoying summer vacations and going on holidays during August, so a travel inspired spreads is a great idea. 

Below is a stunning travel themed August cover page:

Nautical map cover page for August bullet journal
Credit to @fernbujo

This theme is described by the creator Abbey as “Nautical treasure map vibes”, which is spot on! 

I like the idea of using a map as part of a theme for a bujo spread.

To make it personal, you can draw a map outline of a place you are visiting if you’re going on holiday that month. For example, Abbey said she chose this theme idea as she was taking a journey by the sea that month, and moving to Wales (which is where I’m from!).

I like the use of blue to add to the sea idea. You can add colour to your map to add to that theme, such as a green map if you’re visiting the countryside.

Fruit Bullet Journal August Spread

I always like to include examples of fruity themes for summer spreads. 

Below is a cool citrus inspired spread:

I’m a big fan of repeat patterns for themes, as they’re quite simple to create, but look awesome! 

You can also change up each repeat if you want to make it a bit more interesting. 

Like Jordan has done in the cover page above, you can add some colour and alternate the colour of each repeat, or you can add different patterns to each repeat, etc.

Ice Cream Bullet Journal Theme

You really can’t cover August bullet journal theme ideas without including ice cream! 

Below are some ice cream inspired spreads from Instagram:

This August double page spread by Julia is beautiful! 

It’s a really sophisticated take on an ice cream inspired spread; I love the subtle shades of orange and brown used.  

Julia mentions the ice cream included is a creamsicle, which is not actually something I’d heard of!

As it’s not a common treat in the UK.

Above is another example of an ice cream spread for August. 

The colour palette is beautiful, and works beautifully with the different ice cream doodles. 

I also love the quote on the left page. It’s a fun way to start off the spread! 

Including a quote is a great idea if you’re creating a double page spread for the start of the month. 

Same as Anna has done here, you can put a quote on one page, and the month header with an illustration on the other page.

Kite Bullet Journal Spread

This kite inspired August cover page is really sweet. 

It’s quite a simple design, with just line drawings of kites and a bit of colour, but the way the kites are drawn makes real good use of the space; they really fill the page! 

The theme design is very clear, and the kite drawings will definitely feature through the spreads for the rest of the month.

Minimalist August Spread

People think your spreads need to be big, bold designs, with the more going on the better. 

But your spreads really don’t need to be complicated to look good.

This minimalistic August cover page by Hallie is subtle and sweet. 

There’s some quirky lettering for the August header, some line drawing, a bit of colour… and that’s all it really needs to look completed!  

So don’t think you need to keep adding more and filling the page for your designs; sometimes less is more.

Mythical Bullet Journal Theme

I am OBSESSED with this mythical August spread by Asba. 

The colours, the quote, the mushroom houses; everything about it is amazing. 

I also like the inclusion of a vertical dutch door.

A dutch door is when you cut down some of the page in a spread, like Asba has done here by cutting around the mushroom drawing on the right page. 

This is an easy way to add a little something extra to your double page spreads! 

You can also check out Asba’s Youtube channel here:

Random Bullet Journal August Theme Ideas

Below are some awesome bullet journal spreads for August. 

They have their own stand alone category, as they’re so unique!

Mean Girls bullet journal spread

This Mean Girls inspired spread is so much fun! 

Created by Roshisan, this theme is instantly recognisable; as soon as I saw this I knew it was Mean Girls (before I even read the quote). 

Movie inspired themes are a brilliant idea for a bullet journal theme, as they give you so much to work with. 

You can take visuals from the movie, and draw iconic scenes, characters, or even just a colour palette.

Quotes from the film can also be used, or lyrics from your favourite songs (whether it’s a musical, or just has a great soundtrack!). 

I really recommend visiting Roshisan’s Instagram profile and looking through her Mean Girls bullet journal spreads. The bunny ears mood tracker is awesome! 

Credit to @x_anya.journals_x

This Tokyo inspired illustration by Anya is beautiful. 

The colour palette is subtle, but helps bring the drawing to life, and the little details are perfect; the lettering for the August header is so well done. 

If you’re artistic and like to draw (like Anya), I recommend thinking of a design for your monthly cover page that incorporates the monthly header into the drawing somehow. 

It means you can have a whole page just to draw in (and keep the tracker stuff for the rest of the spreads).

July Bullet Journal Spread Inspiration

Want to see some of these theme ideas in action?

Below are some amazing July bullet journal themes from Instagram!

Shell Bullet Journal July Spread

There’s something kinda magical about shells! 

And they make for a great bujo theme idea. 

Check out these shell themed bullet journal spreads below:

I LOVE this shell themed cover page for July! 

Pink isn’t an obvious choice for shells or a summer themed spread, but the mix of pastel candy floss colours and vivid barbie pinks that border red give the page lots of depth. 

I also love the combination of the different types of shells mixed in with the bubbles. Super fun! (And gives me big “The Little Mermaid” vibes!).

Here’s another super cute shell themed bullet journal spread. 

This one uses blues, greens and purples. 

These tones aren’t an obvious choice for a July bullet journal spread (because it’s so hot, and these colours are cool), but it works really well with the shells and under the sea theme.

Under the Sea Bullet Journal Spread

Under the sea is a great theme idea for a July spread, and the above cover page is a super fun example. 

A window on a ship or submarine that shows the vibrant sea life is a brilliant way to do this theme; you can really let your imagination run wild and fill the window with a beautiful seascape like this example, but not have to worry about filling the whole page. 

The mix of vibrant colours and bustling sea life in the window really makes it pop against the plain background!

Sun Bullet Journal Spread for July

Who thinks of summer and doesn’t think of sun? 

A sun inspired spread is a beautiful theme idea for a July bujo spread. 

Check out these warm and wonderful sun themed bullet journal spreads below:

This sunny July cover page is so vibrant and upbeat! 

The page border of unique patterned suns really makes the page pop, and allows Hannah to use a mix of different shades of oranges and yellows to create a warm, happy vibe for her July cover page! 

Repeat patterns are always a great idea for a spread, as you know exactly what you need to draw, and you can repeat the design as much or as little as you like.  

But if you don’t want to try and replicate the exact same doodle, you can do a similar thing as above, and mix up the colours and patterns slightly for each repeat!

This sun inspired cover page by Melody is really quirky. 

It’s everything summer; green grass, a happy, smiling sun, soft fluffy clouds… And then has a few little surprises thrown in. 

I also get 90s vibes from it (I think from the smiley faces!).

Floral July Bullet Journal Spread

Flowers are another great bujo theme idea for July, as plants are in full bloom, enjoying the sunshine (just like us!). 

Below are some gorgeous floral themed bullet journal spreads for July:

This July cover page is colourful, with bright yellows, pins, oranges, reds, greens, and browns.

I love the beautiful flower illustrations too; the different types of flowers drawn as though they are growing behind the letters add a lot of depth to the page.

The spotty pattern for the bubble print text really helps to make it pop!

The flowers on this July cover page are beautifully drawn. 

If you’re artistic and like to use your bullet journal to draw and be creative, you can definitely make space for your art! 

Plan your spreads carefully so the important details are covered, and leave plenty of room to create illustrations in. 

Griffin has done exactly that here; the page on the right covers all the important stuff that need to be tracked in the spread, and then the left cover page is free to draw in! 

Lavender bullet journal spread for July

Focusing on a specific type of flower for a spread is a great idea, like this gorgeous lavender inspired bujo spread above. 

Choosing a flower to focus on allows you to pick a theme colour and work with it in your spread. 

(Plus, there are so many different types of flowers to choose from, that you can pick whatever theme colour you’d like for your spread!)

On the flip side, you can totally have a flower themed spread without any colour at all. 

This floral spread above is a stunning example of a beautiful floral bullet journal spread without any colour. 

I love the layout of this bullet journal spread; it’s quite unusual with the heading going down the page, and the border on the right with the flowers bursting through here and there is a lovely touch.

Here’s another stunning floral themed bullet journal spread for July. 

I love the mix of colours, and the illustration at the bottom right is beautiful.

This is a great example of a spread with a beautiful theme that still has a clear purpose. 

You can design your spread by starting with planning a layout for tracking, and then add in doodles and elements to create a theme in the remaining space.

Fruit Bullet Journal Spread for July

Another great theme idea for your July bullet journal spread is fruit. 

Below are some really cool fruit themed bullet journal pages perfect for July:

The lettering for this July cover page is so unique! 

Taking a heading and using doodles in the lettering is a really cool way to include illustrations in your spread.

It takes a lot of skill to ensure the drawings fill the space correctly so they appear to make the shape of a letter. 

If you’re not a great illustrator, this look may be a bit tricky for you.

However, one way to make it a bit easier to recreate is to not do free hand; if you very gently draw out your bubble letters in pencil, fill them with your doodles in pen, and then rub out the bubble font outline, it should look really good!

Here is another beautiful example of a fruit themed cover page for July, created by Emma (you can check out this post on June bujo ideas to see more of her work!).

The pinks and reds for the strawberries creates a really warm, vibrant look, perfect for a summer bullet journal spread. 

The mixture of strawberries in full colour and just an outline also adds depth to the page; it’s a great idea for if you’re doing a repeat pattern, but don’t want to colour in all your repeats!

Watermelon July Bullet Journal Spread

This super cute spread really incorporates watermelon in every way possible. 

The colours are watermelon inspired, the illustrations… even the dates in the boxes use green and pink! 

The watermelon in its different stages is also a nice touch; the whole watermelon, half watermelon, and slices. 

It reminds me of the old Jaffa Cake adverts where you see the Jaffa cake being eaten in different stages! And it would be easy to recreate this idea with other fruits or foods.

Ice Cream July Bullet Journal Spread

Let’s face it; summer really is the best time for ice cream! 

And it makes the perfect bujo spread theme for July. 

This ice cream inspired July cover page by Sofia is so cute; the colours go together so well, and the ice cream van illustration with the melting ice cream on top is a super quirky touch. 

People think they need to go overboard with their spreads and keep adding more, but Sofia shows all you need is a cool drawing and a heading to make a perfect bullet journal page!

Unique July Bullet Journal Spread Ideas

Lastly, here are some cool July bullet journal spreads from instagram. 

I couldn’t think of a category for them, but they were too fun not to share! 

Check them out below:

Moon and clouds bullet journal illustration

This is a super quirky July cover page. 

I love the mix of colours; in particular the red moon is very unique! 

I’m also a big fan of drawings that are in a box or circle, but then break out of the circle slightly, like in this example with the cloud at the bottom. 

Having a set space for drawing and doodling in is a good way to keep your spreads looking neat and tidy, and also isn’t as daunting as having the whole page to work with!

July dinosaur bullet journal theme inspo
Credit to @paigejacquelinejournaling

I love this dinosaur bullet journal spread.

The pastel colours are so cute, and together with the dinosaur doodles gives it a young, child friendly look. 

You can see if you look closely that the dinosaur doodles are mostly coloured shapes, with a bit of line drawing added on top. 

If you’re not a big fan of really detailed drawing this method for adding doodles is a great idea, as it’s simple to do but still looks really good. 

You start by drawing a coloured shape, and then you add some line drawing here and there to make the shape resemble something (in this case Paige has added spikes, spots, and a lil’ face on each colour blob, to make them resemble cute dinosaurs!). 

Really easy to recreate, and looks AMAZING… But doesn’t require a tonne of artistic skills for your spread!
