Hello Planning Mashers!

I’m so ready for Fall! Aren’t you? Pumpkin spice latte, comfy sweaters, and high riding boots! And most of all – finally an escape from this maddening heat. Sounds amazing to me! And of course, I shouldn’t forget the amazing fall colors!

With all this in mind, I’m already scrolling my Pinterest feed for some autumn themes to add to my bujo. Here are 15 inspiring Fall Bullet Journal theme ideas, as well as some cute fall stationery to help you with your setups.

15 Stunning Fall Bullet Journal Theme Ideas | Masha Plans

Fall is a beautiful and inspiring season! This might be actually my favorite time of the year for my Bullet Journal since colors are rich and inspiration is everywhere around me.

That being said, too many options is also not a good thing, since it makes it harder to make decisions.

That’s why today in this post we will only have 15 themes, so you can easily pick one and get started with your journaling right away. I do have a blog post with 30 more theme ideas if you need more.

Before we dive in, just one more thing I wanted to mention. If you’re on the other side of the world and September means Spring – click away to my post with Inspirational Spring Bullet Journal Theme Ideas.

Coffee Monthly Theme

What says Fall more than a hot cup of coffee, preferably with some whipped cream! So why not use it for your monthly theme this fall. I really love the look! Plus! A fun thing to add to your page – how coffee influences your body!

Fall Colors Theme

One of the most amazing things about fall is all the bright colors we get! Here is an idea – why not just make your spreads in Fall colors? Use all those golds and reds to create stunning and bright pages!

For Fall colors I’d definitely use my Karin markers – they have such a rich and bright pigment! You can check my Boba Bullet Journal setup to see how bright and beautiful they look on the paper.

But be careful with them, since they are water-based they might ghost or even bleed through if your journal doesn’t have a very thick paper.

For the spread, you see below @lacqueredworld used Fall-colored Tombow Dual Brush Pens, Stabilo roller pens, and Lamy fountain pen.

Woodland Creatures

All the browns of Fall make you think of a forest, don’t they? Woodland creatures are a great Fall theme and you can make it in so many different ways! 

That also might be a good time to do the Bambi theme as well, add some Disney magic to the woodland creatures.

In case you’re getting a bit scared to do this theme – I get it, I’m not so good at drawing animals myself. But don’t worry!

I found an amazing tutorial you can check to learn how to draw beautiful animals.

Leaves

What says Fall louder than falling leaves of all the colors! This is a very fun and easy theme to have in your journal – leaves are easy to doodle, and you can play with any colors you like!

I found these fall leaves washi tapes on Etsy and it popped straight to my head how great they will look with this theme!

Drawing leaves can be a little bit monotone, but not if you have a lot of ideas of different types of leaves to draw.

Of course, I got you covered with another cute tutorial I found on YouTube.

Mushrooms

When I was a kid, the first weeks of September were always special for a very fun reason. I loved waking up at 5 am and going to the forest mushroom-hunting!

My Granddad and I’d have a contest and see who could pick the best and most delicious mushrooms for dinner. Ah… simpler and nicer times! That’s why I’ll always associate them with the Fall.

They are also a cool theme idea for Bullet Journal – just look at this magnificent spread from @explorejournaling! I absolutely adore all the bright colors and the fun of this layout.

There are tons of fun ways to doodle mushrooms, which is great because it can help you to add more variety to your pages if you choose this theme.

Of course, there is a video tutorial for that and you can check it below.

Halloween

The obvious choice for the October theme is Halloween! Spook up your journal with some black cats and ghosts! It’s a great way to stay hyped for this holiday!

Add some holiday spirit to your spreads with these Halloween Washi tapes and Halloween stickers from Amazon.

Pumpkin

And speaking of Halloween – one more important symbol of Fall is the pumpkin! (pumpkin spice latte anyone?) So of course it had to be in my list of Fall themes.

I love this theme also because pumpkins actually come up in so many colors!

I really love the colors and the setup of the page. It’s mostly black and white but little orange accents really make it stand out.

But if you want to with this theme you can go crazy in beautiful yellow and orange colors like the colors on the page below.

Harry Potter

September is the time for magic to begin – one more year in Hogwarts! So if you ask me which season should Harry Potter theme be assigned to, I’ll always say – Fall. Plus the Gryffindor’s colors are just screaming of Autumn!

If you want to dive deeper into Harry Potter theme for your Bullet Journal, check out my post with 43+ Harry Potter Bullet Journal Theme Inspirations.

There are so many different supplies you can use to help with this theme, like for example these adorable wizarding world stickers.

There are also tons of tutorials on how to doodle Harry Potter things, I’ll be sharing my favorite one below.

Back to School

Back to school is such a fun theme! Even if you aren’t really a student anymore, I find it still fun to doodle all the stationery and other school supplies (like this little doodle tutorial I made). Especially since I’m still addicted to those.

To start you up on ideas, check these 11+ Fun and Easy Stationery Doodles with step-by-step tutorials and a “Doodle With Me” YouTube video.

I actually also created a Back To School theme in my Bullet Journal (and another one for 2021 August setup), so be sure to check it out if you’re interested to see my take.

I really like the to-do list spread and how the doodle of the backpack is actually added like a sticker. There is such a back-to-school vibe in it!

I had a different approach but I thought it might still be fun to have my cover page as well.

Owls

Out of all woodland creatures, owls have a special place in my heart. And they also are a great theme for your Bullet Journal – you can draw them in million different styles and use any colors you want!

Just check out these Pinterest search results to get inspiration for your owl pages.

Owls are really such majestic and mysterious creatures, but they can also be super cute, like that owl o the page above.

I had to include a spread with a more royal approach to owls though, take a look at this cover spread below.

Apples

This is a great theme for Fall! Apple pie, apple jam, apple cider, and just plain apples – all of these are fall flavors for me.

So for this theme no need to only draw apples, anything apple would look great: pies, jams, buckets of apples, apple trees. Let your imagination flow.

Mason Jars

Fall has always been a time to prepare for winter. And for me, it means that Grandma’s place would become this wonderful smelling factory, where she’d make all the jams and pickles for the year to come. So mason jars would fit right into a Fall themes Bullet Journal.

You can get a free mason jar printable mood tracker to use in this monthly setup from Erin at The Petite Planner blog.

Cats

Oh, I’ll be honest here – I’m more of a dog person. But snuggle in chilly Fall evening with a kitty on your lap sounds absolutely magnificent! So I say kitties are definitely a Fall theme!

Lately, I’ve been absolutely crazy about the weekly stencils by @oopsadaisyuk, so I’d definitely recommend getting the cat stencils for easy kitties theme setup.

Fashion

Don’t know about you, but I’m an utter fan of Fall fashion! There is something especially comforting about the big fluffy sweaters and tall boots. So why not add something you love to the beloved Bullet Journal!

Since clothes are not thaaaaaat simple to draw, I offer a shortcut – try out these fall fashion stickers!

Cooking

Imagine a chilly evening, and you run home, get to the kitchen to have some hot tea and fresh jam. The kitchen is full of delicious smells of freshly made jars of jam and apple pie baking. This is Fall and this is one of the best thing about it.

Cooking is a great monthly theme for the season!

Plus kitchen utensils are so fun and easy to doodle!

Of course, I had to find a tutorial for you, and this one is from one of my favorite doodle artists.

Fall Bullet Journal Stationery

Fall is also a time for us to come back from our summer vacations, back to work / school. So I’d say it’s a good time to take some shortcuts in your Bullet Journal setups, while we are still trying to get used to a new routine.

Add to your Bullet Journal supplies some Fall themed stationery! Below see some of my picks from Etsy (the best place to shop for creative Bullet Journal supplies) and Amazon.
