200+ Creative Bullet Journal Theme Ideas For Every Month On The Year

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

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

I have been doing my Bullet Journal for some time already, and I always try to come up with some interesting ideas for my spreads to challenge my creativity and create interesting content for you guys.

So 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. 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 is also a special set of FREE printables – 12 printable cover pages. They can help you start on your Bullet Journal and try out different themes.

You can find them in the “other pages” section of the Resources Vault, and if you don’t have access yet – be sure to join in at the end of the post.

This is how this post is organized. First, we’ll go through some general ideas on creating a theme and why you might want to have one.

After that, you’ll be able to find themes based on seasons. We’ll go winter – spring – summer – fall.

For each season you’ll see some theme ideas, and some big holidays that are happening, which can also be an interesting theme idea by itself.

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 do you need them.

Don’t worry; we will figure it out. First, though, you might need to check our Ultimate Guide To Bullet Journal For Beginners: it definitely will help you figure out this whole Bullet Journal thing.

Back to the topic – what are the themes? You unite your spreads for a certain month with a theme – a certain type of decoration that help you bring your whole monthly design together.

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

Book Bullet Journal Theme Ideas And Inspirations - monthly log | Masha Plans

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 coming up with new ways to decorate each page.

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 wanna 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.

That’s where posts like this one come into play since you’ll find here 200+ ideas and cover page inspirations from different creators.

How To Use JOURNAL Themes

Here is how you can incorporate a theme into your monthly setup.

But always remember that these are just some suggestions to get your imagination going; how you do it in your journal is up to you.

I like to play around with them sometimes by, for example, choosing one journal theme for my monthly setup but changing it up in the weekly spreads.

Let your imagination flow!

Cover page

Start by creating a cover page which is defining your theme.

Cover pages are a kind of divider between your months that tell you that from now on, we will see a new month, and this is the theme.

Decorate your cover page with something from your theme, and maybe write the month there as well.

Header Styles

A cool thing would also be to choose one particular style of headers and use them on all pages. This will bring it all together even more.

Below is an example of the lettering style I chose for my book-themed Bullet Journal setup, I used them on all the pages that month.

Doodles

Use the elements from your theme to decorate pages or just fill out some blank spaces you don’t like.

My favorite way to do it is by creating thematic doodles. Doodles are super fun to draw and are pretty easy as well.

If you’re still not sure that you can doodle – check my Beginner’s Guide To Bullet Journal Doodles. Believe me, you totally can doodle!

Quotes

Another cool way to bring some fun to your theme is by adding quotes that are somehow connected to your theme, or maybe just a silly pun.

Feel free to check out my Coffee Themed Bullet Journal Setup, where I challenged me to have a silly coffee quote on every page.

Do You Need A Theme In Your Bullet Journal?

Creating themes is kind of a very popular theme 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!

Bullet Journal Theme Ideas

I’ll divide the themes in the following way – first, I will state themes according to seasons. There are so many interesting ideas you can get from nature around you.

I also included different holidays happening during the seasons so you could use those as ideas for possible themes as well.

And finally, I’ll write down some general ideas unconnected with any time of the year.

Of course, for every category, I’ll include BuJo cover pages for a clear example of how to bring some of these themes to life.

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.

Stars are a beautiful and pretty simple theme, making it perfect for January.

I found that I often get so busy with the holidays that I don’t have the time for a too-artistic setup. The stars theme seems to be perfect for such a time – it’s pretty and full of doodles, but also pretty easy to draw.

Even though this December cover page is not necessary Christmas-themed, it still makes me think of holidays.

Cozy evenings with cocoa and family watching some movies together while wearing silly sweaters.

I probably wouldn’t be sitting outside like that in the winter that cold and snowy, but I guess it’s ok for the bears.

I find this is a really cute theme idea.

What an adorable way to bring Christmas to your Bullet Journal – not just Christmas, but a Charlie Brown Christmas.

This cover page definitely makes me feel so warm inside, and full of love.

Cozy winter clothes are always a good idea for those cold months.

I’m usually not a fan of cold, but this cover page definitely reminds me how fun it can be wearing those cozy mittens.

Even though this cover page is for November, for me it’s a January cover page.

Penguins are a winter symbol, so I think it works better for the winter months.

How cool is this happy and fun snowman cover page?

I’m also loving how she used a lot of other materials like washi tape and book pages.

Love this cover page and how aesthetic it looks with the watercolor effect.

The sun going up can be more of a Spring or Summer theme, but I think the cold color palette makes it perfect for January.

You’d think that snowflakes are too basic for a theme, but look how beautiful and elaborate these snowflakes are.

Another great thing about this theme is that you can get very creative with the shape of snowflakes since no one flake is the same as the other.

Paris is a beautiful and, of course, very romantic city so it would be a perfect theme for February.

I also love the gentle pink used as a shadow for this brush lettering.

This black-and-white effect makes the landscape look so cold and wintery.

Stippling was also a great choice to show that it’s covered with snow.

I want to mention how original this font is, it makes me think of a digital clock.

The Black and blue of the sky make it look chilly, making it a perfect theme for winter.

Another beautiful cover page with cozy winter doodles.

I really like how the artist used these doodles to create a wreath.

I wish I knew what’s the name of these leaves, but they look amazing on this page!

I feel like she used them almost as a pattern, which is always a fun way to decorate your journal.

Isn’t it an interesting idea to decorate the title page with the words?

Also, for some reason, at first, I thought its a bear drinking champagne.

With February being Valentine’s Day month, it’s a must-have idea to do a hearts theme.

I especially love this one because the heart is in a creative geometrical shape.

This dragon is absolutely stunning! And a perfect illustration to celebrate Chinese New Year.

It’s based on the lunar calendar, so pretty often, it takes place in January, not February, so this theme can be for any of the two months.

Another great cover page idea for the holiday season.

You can’t go wrong with these traditional symbols for Christmas – mistletoe and gingerbread man.

Always a good February theme idea, and I love how everyone comes up with creative ways to interpret it.

This one has tiny hearts in 4 different colors, and the cover page looks so different.

Technically this is a weekly page, not a cover page like the others.

But it has those beautiful lanterns, and I thought it could still be a wonderful inspiration for the Chinese New Year Theme.

One more hearts theme, and I promise this is the last one!

But I had to include it because it has again a completely different look and I fell in love with the pastel ombre coloring.

Here is my take on a floral theme; of course, I had to go with pastel colors.

It’s funny, though; if I did a floral theme right now, I’d probably do it the other way around and go with something very bright like in my March 2021 setup.

Sakura blossoms are a great theme for Spring, and I love this font.

Honestly, this is the spring thing for me, and it’s definitely on my bucket list to visit Japan during the cherry blossoms. Anyone else?

Another approach to flower theme and with incredible brush lettering.

I love flowers because even when it’s the same flower, there are still so many ways to draw them very differently.

Another cacti succulent theme, but this time it’s much more colorful.

I love this theme because you can play around with the types of plants and different types of pots.

Daisies are such fun and beautiful flowers. And it was my childhood nickname.

These flowers are also pretty easy to doodle, and there are many ways to do it as well.

I hope these are daisies… I’m pretty bad with the names of flowers. Let me know in the comments if I was right here.

April showers bring May flowers; this saying makes for a pretty fun April theme idea.

I love how the colors are bright and friendly on this cover page, not the usual depressing grays of rain. As you can tell, I’m not a huge fan of rain myself.

In my hometown, it rains very often, and we only have around 60 sunny days a year. So I’m not much of a rain person unless, of course, it’s tropical rain when you’re on the seaside and it’s incredibly hot. That can be fun!

lavender is very easy to doodle, and you just need one or two purple color markers to create an amazing theme.

One of the best decorations for your Bullet Journal is brush lettering.

Another fun take on a floral theme.

I like how the artist stuck to just a few colors and used them randomly for flowers and leaves.

It is such a beautiful and gentle cover page; I’m really loving this shade of green.

As a bonus – they are pretty easy to doodle, so it will make for a fast and bright theme for those lazy summer months.

Sometimes just bright colors can bring all the summer vibes you need.

If you’ll try to do the same and draw on top of watercolor, try using some water-resistant fineliners like these ones, so your lines stay black and don’t feather.

My take on a tropical theme. 

I call it that way because I randomly used all the different doodles that made me think of tropical vacations.

This looks exactly like the juice stand I have around the corner! In Bolivia, where I live for the moment, fruits are available the whole year round, so this wouldn’t be just a Summer theme.

But around the world, juice stands are probably more for the hot summer months when fruits are easier available and definitely cheaper.

Such a beautiful and creative approach to the firefly theme.

Somehow it reminds me of Van Gogh paintings, probably because of blue and yellow.

There is something dreamy and wonderful about hot air balloons.

Since I imagine hot Summers are probably the best time of the year to go up there and not freeze, I say that this is a theme idea for the Summer months.

I honestly don’t know why Summer is always a vacation time for me; I haven’t been able to go on vacation in summer ever since I graduated college.

Nonetheless, it’s probably the nicest to travel during summer, and looking at this page, I agree.

Your theme can just be color, and this is a great example of it.

Probably the best way to do this technique is by using watercolors.

Beautiful underwater plants. Sorry, I can’t come up with a word for how to call these, I don’t think these are seaweeds, and I don’t know any other sea plants.

A special mention of those beautiful colors make me think of those South East Asian seas with their turquoise water.

Friends is a great and very comfy show. And there are so many little things you can doodle from the show to decorate your pages.

A door on the cover page is a great idea; it’s like an opening for the new month.

Crystals are a very beautiful theme, and I love how the artist used a white gel pen to add some shine to them.

Another great thing about crystals is that you can use any colors you want, not necessarily just blue and purple.

I love love love llamas 9even though I’m known to have misspelled this work once or twice).

And this one is super cute, and it looks very different from my llama theme.

Donuts are a delicious treat, and it’s pretty easy to doodle them.

Plus, there are so many different flavors and toppings you’ll never run out of ideas on how to decorate them.

Remember when everyone was playing Among Us? I remember.

That was the month when I created this theme, something different to try for October.

This cover page reminds me of camping outside and telling stories by the fire.

It’s definitely a fun theme to use for Summer.

That time I decided to do a Christmas movies theme for December.

It wasn’t my best or prettiest theme, but it was fun to create one.

Makeup is so much fun to doodle, and you can play around with colors! I remember I used almost all 100 of my Crayola Super Tips when I did my makeup theme.

Fenke however used Karin Markers for hers, and they look stunning!

Back to the 90s! As the 90’s kid, it’s always something that makes me smile.

I can agree fashion was a bit strange, and I’m not a huge fan of chemical colors. But nostalgia is strong, and I’m loving them right now.

I was so obsessed with this show. It’s lovely and so sweet.

Plus, the cute bears definitely make for a cute Bullet Journal theme.

This was not a big show for me, but I know this show has a cult following.

So, of course, somebody would turn this into a theme, and it looks great.

It’s so interesting to look through this post because some of my cover pages are all the way from 2018. My style really did change since then, I think.

But this was my first take on a kind of Boho theme.

Beautiful cover page with some sealife doodles. I love that she used different shades of blue to unite it all.

But the cool thing about this theme is that you can go crazy with colors because under the sea, they have all the colors you can imagine.

Miyazaki movies are some of my favorites of all time; just check my right arm covered with Ghibli movies tattoos. But I was never brave enough to bring my love to my Bullet Journal.

Connie, however, did, and it came out looking absolutely stunning.

Unicorns are cute and happy and a great way to use your pastel colors.

I loved this theme so much that I created it twice.

Harry Potter Bullet Journal Setup - cover page | Masha Plans

Harry Potter was a fun theme, but I’ll be the first to admit that it took quite a long time to create it.

I don’t think I’ll be recreating this theme in my journal.

Space can be pretty scary, but this one looks mesmerizing, wouldn’t you agree?

I love that watercolor effect she created with Tombow markers.

Another take on the sea life theme is with many more colors this time.

I kind of like creating wreaths, so this one attracted my attention as well.

Mandalas are very calming, and they look stunning! You can leave them in black and white, or you can color them later.

If you’ve never drawn those, check my post How To Draw Mandalas In Your Bullet Journal.

I really enjoyed creating a photography theme in my journal. 

There are many types of cameras you can doodle, plus you can always add some other decoration to it, like flowers, for example.

Aliens are such an out-of-the-box idea that I simply had to include them in this lineup.

I’m also loving the bright colors she chose, Estrella always has such beautiful themes.

It is such a fun theme with all the doodles and bright colors.

The artist really managed to capture the spirit of the books.

The first time I did a coffee theme, and it’s definitely one of my favorites.

For my second time, I went with more of a cozy vibe with kraft paper.
