200+ Bullet Journal Themes For Every Month On The Year

Sharing is caring!

Time to talk Bullet Journal themes, and in this post, I gathered 200+ Bullet Journal monthly themes for you!

I understand the struggle of coming up with a new Bullet Journal theme idea every month!

That’s why I decided to gather all theme ideas I could come up with into one huge list. I hope it will help you to enjoy your planning without any pressure and give you the inspiration to create your own unique journal spreads.

There are also tons of cute Bullet Journal cover pages to show you how these ideas can look in your journal.

Before we dive into the themes, I feel like we might need to look through a few points on what they are and why you’d want to use them. I see a lot of misconceptions around Bullet Journal themes, and I just want to make sure you know what they are and that you can do whatever you want with them.

Your journal = your rules!

Let’s dive in!

What Are Bullet Journal Themes?

New to Bullet Journaling? Then you probably are a bit confused about what are the themes and why you need them. Don’t worry; we will figure it out.

You unite your spreads for a certain month with a theme – a certain type of decoration that helps you bring your whole monthly design together.

You can choose a theme like books and add book doodles to your pages. Or you can choose a color as your theme and use a specific color when decorating.

Themes help you to bring some consistency to your Bullet Journal pages, to divide your months and also are a great way to simplify your setup a little bit.

When you choose a theme, you commit to using certain doodles and illustrations on your pages for the entire month, so it’s much easier than creating new ways to decorate each page.

Do You Need A Theme In Your Bullet Journal?

Creating themes is kind of very popular in the Bullet Journal community. But here’s the scoop – you don’t have to follow themes.

Always remember this is your journal and your rules, so you are free to do whatever you want. 

If you want – have one theme for an entire year, like decorating all your pages with flowers, or using pink for all the setups.

If you want to – have a different theme for each page of your month.

Really it’s all up to you and what you want to do with your journal. 

Ok, time to get to the list!

Where To Find BuJo Theme Ideas

I get asked this question a lot, so I thought this is a good place to answer it.

Bullet Journal theme ideas are all around us!

For me, it can be a show I’m obsessed with, a book I’m loving, or maybe just a funny saying I heard. Of course, a lot of inspiration can come from seasons, seasonal holidays, and weather.

And a very big source of inspiration for me is color. Sometimes I can start by thinking I want to use a certain color, and it leads me to a complete theme.

The final huge source of inspiration I want to mention is other creators and artists. It’s always a good idea to check other people’s work and see if it inspired you to create something of your own.

Just be sure that you use other creators’ work as an inspiration rather than just copy what they create.

Creative Bullet Journal Monthly Themes

The Bullet Journalling community is so wonderfully creative and inspiring! I’m always in awe of the gorgeous theme ideas and monthly covers that folks have come up with.

To help you out, I’ve collected some amazing examples for each month to get everyone inspired.

Although they are arranged according to monthly order, don’t feel like you have to stick strictly to that – mix it up and try something different with your own journal.

So let your imagination fly and create your original take on any of these themes. And if there are some you would like to add – please don’t be shy and share them in the comments.

You’ll find some more theme ideas at the end of the post, so be sure to keep on scrolling.
