Doodling can be both beautiful and fun and will not only brighten up your pages but also help give it a unique touch and even pick your monthly theme.
In this blog post, we will go over some of our favorite cute and easy summer doodles that would look absolutely stunning in any Bullet Journal. These are easy-to-follow step-by-step tutorials you’ll be able to do even as a beginner!
You know I love doodling, I usually just need a theme, and I can keep doodling all day long. As a matter of fact, the weekend came, and that’s exactly what I did!
All this fun turned into my new “How To Doodle: Summer Doodles” video, which you can check out at the end of the post.
I had a few more ideas and different doodle variations for you, so I made 15 tutorials of other Summer themed doodles. I’m sure with all these step-by-step instructions; you’ll be able to create cute little doodles in no time!
To help you practice, I also made a free worksheet, so be sure to scroll until the end of the post to get it and more!
The secret to doodling lies in dividing any doodle into basic shapes, so in all my tutorials below, I’ll be starting with some basic shapes.
15 Easy Summer Doodles
Summer doodles is kind of a wide concept, so what I tried to do is to think of things that remind me of summer and do those.
Feel free to let me know in the comments what things remind you of summer and I’ll see if I can add some more tutorials later.
How To Doodle Pineapple
Start from an oval. Then correct the shape into the way you want to. You can make it more squared, or maybe just widen the lower end of the oval.
Add a net on your pineapple and draw a dot in each section and remember to add the green leaves on the top.
How To Doodle Ice Cream
Start from two rectangles, the large one on the top and a smaller one at the bottom. Round the corners on each rectangle.
Add some melted chocolate dripping from the top and finally add little ovals on the ice-cream itself. You can skip any one of these steps and play around to get the ice cream you like.
How To Doodle Flip Flops
Our basic shapes are two rectangles, I chose to draw them next to each other, but you can make them crossed as well.
Next step – shape your rectangles into flip flops: round the corners and narrow a bit the bottom side of the rectangles.
Final step – little curved lines coming from the middle to the edges of each flip flop.
How To Doodle Swim Suit
With flip-flops of course comes the swimming suit or bikini. Start with a several rectangles and a triangle.
Then add the ovals to the top of the swimming suit, and you can decorate them as you wish.
The bottom is the lower part of the swimming suit, so curve the sides on the triangle to look more like that.
How To Doodle Lemon Water
Or water, the beverage type really depends on the color you use in the end.
Start from a rectangle – this is your glass. Then curve the edges and add an oval on the top of your rectangle. Just like that your glass is done!
Inside add another little rectangle with curved edges and draw little circles inside – this is your drink. Leave it as it is, or add some little details, like a straw and a lemon wedge.
How To Doodle Sun Umbrella
Draw a half-circle, divide your half-circle into several parts and connect them at the bottom with curved lines.
Then add another curved line below to add the back of your sun umbrella.
Now that you have your umbrella drawn, just add a curved line coming out of its center and a little black dot on the top, and you’re done.
How To Doodle Beach Bag
Start with a square or maybe a rectangle – depending on the shape you want your bag to have. Then soften the edges and narrow a bit the bottom part of the square.
Add a curved line as the handle and larger rectangles inside your square at the place where the handle meets the bag body.
Finally, add some summery colors, and your beach bag doodles is ready!
How To Doodle Lemon
The freshness of lemon 100% associated with summer for me, and they are so easy to doodle!
Start with two circles, one inside the other. Try to put them pretty close to each other. This will be the zest of your lemon.
Inside, add triangles with curved edges, all facing the center of the circles. Finally, add little lines to each triangle as a symbol of a lemon texture.
As an extra, you can also add two (or however many you want) little drops on the side.
How To Doodle Lifebuoy Ring
What summer beach vacations can go without a lifebuoy ring?
Start with two circles, one inside the other, and leave quite a lot of space between those.
Then add little rectangles coming out and connected by curved lines to that rope part of the lifebuoy ring.
All you are left to do after that is use color and add lines to the rope to make it more realistic.
How To Doodle Starfish
This one is pretty simple. Start by drawing a star, then round up the corners.
Finally, add circles coming from the middle to the ends of the star.
How To Doodle Seashell
Draw a curved like and then connect the ends so it kind of looks like a circle.
Add little half circles at the bottom and the lines on top for the edges of the shell.
Finally add some curved lines to make it look more like a seashell and have fun playing with colors.
How To Doodle Tropical Flower
I love those, they are very easy to doodle, and they’re so summery!
Start with a circle, and from the center draw 5 little lines. Then add curved lines coming out of the center and going all the way to the circle.
Add more curved lines to connect the existing ones with the next one. Finally, add some curved lines inside of each petal, just to add an extra little dimension.

How To Doodle Camera
I don’t know about you, but summer is the time when I take pictures the most. With the sun and good weather you just feel like doing more and filming more, don’t you?
To start, draw a rectangle. In the middle, add circle for the lens and some rectangles for the flash and the visor.
Finally, details – add the buttons and a color stripe on the body of the camera.
How To Doodle Toucan
Probably the most summer bird I could think of, and surprisingly easy to doodle.
You start with an oval and then add a beak, which is kind of a triangle
Then you add details – a cut-off triangle for the tail and a half circle for the wing.
The final touches are some details – an eye. beak lines and some blush.
How To Doodle Crab
This little guy will brighten any page in your Bullet Journal.
Basic shapes are – big oval, two little ovals on the sides, and two smaller ones on the top. Then connect all the ovals to the bigger one and sharpen the side ones.
Turn the top ovals into eyes with a dot in the middle and add some eyelashes (Scientific disclaimer: Real crabs don’t actually have eyelashes. The more you know!). Add two curved lines next to each claw as a symbol of them moving and clicking.
As for the feet, draw straight lines and add sharply curved lines on the side.

Of course, if you sit down to doodle, you’ll need some supplies.
You definitely can use anything you already have in your collection, but if you need any recommendations, I’ve got you covered.
Here are some of my favorite supplies:
- A notepad or a journal. First, you need good paper, especially if you’ll be using your brush pens for coloring. You could definitely use this Rhodia notepad that has amazing paper. Personally, I prefer to have a separate notebook or pad for doodling.
- A pencil is a must-have for doodling, I think. It will help you so much to avoid mistakes and take your time refining your doodles. My go-to is Pilot Dr. Grip Mechanical Pencil which is probably the most comfortable pencil.
- Fineliners. I also love using fine liners for doodling – they create such vivid black lines! My favorites are Sakura Pigma Microns.
- Markers. Something to add color! I could talk about these forever, but my favorites are probably Zebra Mildliners and Tombow Twin Tone.
