October approaches, and with that, Halloween! One of the easiest choices for a theme for October is Halloween. Not that I really understand it since I live in New Zealand and far removed from the traditions of Halloween. Although it is starting to become more and more popular. Commercialisation at its worst! But anyhow, to make life easier for you, I’ve collated some of the best Halloween themed bullet journal spreads in one blog post!
But before we start, here are some ways that you can add a Halloween vibe to your bullet journal spreads and layouts:
Halloween Bullet Journal Doodles
Your choice of colour can create a halloween vibe. Colours such as orange and black are great, reminding us of carved pumpkins synonymous with Halloween. Or go for a creepier look by using lots of black.
Adding lots of Halloween doodles to your pages such as pumpkins, witches’ hats, spell books, ghosts, potions and spider webs etc can create a halloween vibe in your bullet journal.
Here are some examples for you from @caitlinmariedasilva
And if you need a bit of help, here’s a doodle tutorial on how to draw a pumpkin by Liz at @bonjournal_
If you don’t feel like you’re confident enough to doodle in your bullet journal, you can always try using stencils, stickers or washi tape or all three.
Halloween Mood Trackers
If you love tracking your mood, you’ll need a Halloween themed mood tracker for October. And this one by @elas_bullet_journey is absolutely STUNNING!
Or how about this CUTE mood tracker by @kitoremi
Halloween and October Monthly Cover Pages
Here are some great ideas for October monthly cover pages, or welcome pages in your bullet journal. They are all halloween themed, using colours and/or doodles that I’ve already talked about.
Halloween Bullet Journal Monthly Logs
After your cover page/welcome page, you will need a monthly log in your bullet journal. You can go with the traditional monthly log from the bullet journal system, or try a calendar format.
Halloween Bullet Journal Weekly Spreads
If you prefer bullet journal weekly spreads to daily logs there, here are some great examples for you! All decorated with a beautiful halloween theme! Note how the black and white weekly layouts are just as effective as the ones that use colour!
Halloween Bullet Journal Collections
If you’re in search of lists and collections to add to your bullet journal with a halloween theme, then check these out!
