Sketch your little heart out with these seasonal fall bullet journal doodle ideas that will surely make your bujo cute and cozy
Fall Bullet Journal Doodle Ideas
The fall season is finally here, and what could be more perfect than a bullet journal theme to celebrate the season! I’m going to share with you some of my favorite ideas for autumn doodles that will help you get in the mood for Thanksgiving, Halloween, and everything pumpkin spice latte-related!
There’s just something so warm and inviting to think about sitting down with a cup of coffee or tea and creating your bullet journal for the fall months.
However, once you get started, it can be hard to find any inspiration that will keep your journal exciting day after day.
This post is here to help! While there are some great examples on Pinterest and Google where people have shared their bullet journals, sometimes it’s easier just to follow along with them when they’re all in one place.
There are pages here inspired by all of my favorite fall activities – from pumpkins to cute little ghosts and goblins for some Halloween doodles!
These drawings are sure to fit in any notebook, and you can scale them up or down, depending on how much room you’d like them to take up in your own bullet journal.
Don’t forget – these are just doodles, so feel free to mix them up as much as you want or even use your creativity and come up with something new!
Cutest Bullet Journal Doodle Ideas for Fall
What’s fall without pumpkins? The first thing that always comes to my mind when doodling anything fall-related is a pumpkin doodle! These are my favorite type of doodles to draw because they always turn out so cute, and I can make them in a million different ways.
Here is a step by step tutorial on how to draw the little orange fellow from scratch. It’s really easy and fun to do, even for beginners who aren’t used to bujo drawing. The best thing is that the size of the pumpkin can be adjusted to match your preference or where you’ll put this fall doodle in your bullet journal.
You can also color them with pencils, pens, or colored pencils after they’ve been drawn to personalize them even more.
Fall Leaves and Foliage
You can’t go wrong with the classic set of falling leaves – they’re simple yet so unique and can be drawn in so many ways to keep it fun for the whole year and not just fall. They look amazing when added onto pumpkin doodles, but you can also fill up pages with them or even draw them alone.
If you’re like me and get overwhelmed with a ton of different ways to draw fall leaves, this photo is super helpful to figure out how to draw a few different leaves from scratch!
You can also use this as inspiration for your own drawings. Maybe make the lines a little thicker or change up the colors if they don’t fit with your theme. You can really do anything to make them perfect for you, and no one else will even notice because everyone has their own versions of these leaves!
Cute Coffee Mugs
If you’re not a coffee drinker usually, you might be after you try your hand at these cute fall coffee mug doodles.
I suppose you can draw them with tea bags in them instead, but there’s something about being able to sketch up some latte art in your bullet journal.
Why not give it a shot in your fall doodles this year? Something else you can add is what kind of coffee you drink, how often, and how it makes you feel.
For example, “9 am, decaf vanilla latte, soothing.” You could also use coffee mugs as mood trackers. Perhaps the more full your coffee mug, the better your day was. There are so many ways you could go with this cute bullet journal doodle idea.
Halloween Doodle Ideas
Fall wouldn’t be complete without a Halloween doodle or two! There are multiple directions you can take your Halloween bullet journal doodles – from cute cartoon ghosts to beautifully decorated pumpkins.
Here are some of my favorite Halloween bullet journal doodle ideas:
Ghosts and Goblins
I love cute little ghosts and goblins! When I think ghosts, I think more of Casper vs. a creepy ghost of a kid who died a million years ago.
You could use them as an ‘in case of emergency’ kind of thing or just for fun! You could also attach it to your trick or treat fall bucket list or even play games with them throughout your entire journal.
My favorite way to decorate my pages for those days I want something spooky is drawing ghosts and goblins as decorations around the margins of my bujo spreads. These are easy to draw and, of course, can be colored with sharpies or your favorite journaling pens or markers!
Spiders, Vampires, and Bats
If you’re into the “spookier” side of Halloween, spiders, and vampires are the way to go! This step-by-step tutorial for simple doodles will have you drawing black and white cute spiders in no time. If this one doesn’t particularly tickle your fancy, there are hundreds of other step-by-step tutorials out there for how to create tons of super cute doodles from a black cat to a pumpkin pie!
Simple Fall-Themed Weekly Layouts and Monthly Spreads
The thing I like most about adding in month layouts at the beginning of a new month in a bullet journal is feeling like a fresh start.
I feel like when I add in a new month, it can create a hard reset for my brain and also hopefully for my creativity. It’s a great way to keep new ideas flowing and a way to not let yourself forget important things you have going on that month!
Fall is my favorite time of the year for inspiring layouts because it comes with all sorts of holidays and other special occasions.
Another one of my favorite things you can do with your fall monthly weekly spreads is to write out what your plans are for each day – or if you just want to write one or two things that are happening that month, the options are endless. It’s just so much fun!
Fall Themed Mood Tracker
I think having mood trackers as part of your bullet journal is a fun way to look back on how your days are going depending on where you are in life and what may be going on in the world.
Everything always seems like such a huge ordeal in the moment, but when you look back at your bullet journal a year from now, you may not even remember feeling a certain way.
Of course, making a fall-themed mood tracker is one of those things that can be done in any type of notebook, but if you’re looking for something more specific than just “mood,” this might be perfect!
You could use your fall mood tracker in your bullet journal to track how much time you spend on social media or even what kind of music you listen to when feeling down. I love the idea of also using this with other themes like gratitude or productivity.
Thanksgiving can encompass a lot of things – food, family, fall sweaters, and so on. You can totally decorate your bullet journal spread with some cute Thanksgiving doodles while you’re planning out what you’ll be cooking (or eating) for the big day!
Don’t forget to include a Turkey Day shopping list or even just your errands that you need to pick up before the big day. Nobody wants to show up empty-handed to an event with the family when you were responsible for bringing something.
Your Thanksgiving doodles can also fall right into your shopping list for Black Friday too! Split your lists out by person, and you could even use washi tape or your favorite markers in different fall colors or your own favorite color combo to keep your lists separate.
You can’t go wrong with a good bucket list. Especially for one of my favorite seasons! The best part of bullet journaling is that you can make any kind of list or collection to organize anything.
Fall bucket lists are the perfect way to look forward to pumpkin spice latte season (which is like…every season, right?) and include all of your favorite fall things like hayrides, leaves changing colors, apple picking, and more!
Your bucket list can be as minimal or extra as you want it to be – cute stickers, washi tape, stickies…whatever you like! If you’re more of a freehand person when it comes to drawing in your bujo then feel free to practice some sketches or even draw one for each item on the list.
These fall bullet journal doodles are the perfect way to incorporate your love of all things autumn into this year’s planner. You can feel like you’re decorating for Thanksgiving or Halloween every single day while also keeping track of life’s important events. Win win!
