If you had to choose three holidays as your favorite, which ones would you choose?
Halloween is definitely in my top three!
I’ve never been bold enough for cosplay, but let’s face it. It’s freaking awesome to dress up as someone/something else. And that’s the beauty of Halloween.
You can be anything you want to be. Want to be a sexy bunny? Get it, girl. Want to be a creepy ghoul from Thirteen Ghosts? Absolutely, do it.
And for so many people, this is the one holiday every year that they don’t have to worry about fitting in or going with the crowd. You are free to express whatever character you create.
So, every year since I started bullet journaling, I look forward to my October bullet journal spreads. I just love coming up with Halloween ideas and doodles.
And that time is coming up quick this year. So, I thought it would be fun to put together an inspirational Halloween bullet journal post for you and myself, as well.
This Post Includes:
- Halloween inspired trackers
- October bullet journal page ideas
- Halloween Doodle Guide & FREE Printable
Halloween Header Tutorial for your Bullet Journal
Whether you are writing October on your cover page or adding headers to your habit tracker and gratitude log, this creepy header definitely sets the vibe.
I first created this Halloween header tutorial last year and sent it out to my email subscribers. But, I thought it would be great to bring it back this year and show everyone how to create it.
Doesn’t this just give you the creeps? The good kind, of course!
Feel free to change up the colors and add any shadows or shading that you want. Black and purple or all orange with a black drop shadow would like pretty cool.
And, if this style isn’t for you, that’s okay too. One way I like to find new fonts to use in my bullet journal is to go to DaFont.com and do some browsing.
Once you are on the website, look to the far right side of the screen. Under the top column labeled ‘Holiday’, you will see Halloween.
Once you find a font you like, click on it. Then you will be able to type in a sample word to see what it looks like. For instance, type ‘October’ into the preview box. Then pick a size and click submit.
Then, you can either free draw it from what you see on the screen or you can take a screenshot with your computer and then print the screenshot and trace over it and into your journal.
Add Bold Details
You can make any font Halloween themed with the right colors and details. Consider using all black and then adding some white ghost faces to your letters with a white gel pen.
You could also use a metallic gold or silver gel pen to give your Halloween lettering a chic feel.
One last way to add detail to an otherwise ordinary font is to doodle some spooky stuff around your letters.
Give this cobweb lettering a try. It’s simple lettering done with a black marker and then small cobwebs doodled in with a felt tip pen.
What other ways could you attach doodles to your lettering to make your Halloween bullet journal headers come to life?
Halloween Themed Trackers
I have fallen in love with creating habit trackers and mood trackers. Whether they are printables that I put in my VIP Resource library or those that I create for myself, it is one of my favorite things to do.
I also love looking at all the amazing and creative trackers that people in the community create.
So, if you want to create your own Halloween themed tracker, have a look at these different trackers for inspiration.
Halloween Bullet Journal Layouts
I could have just lumped all of the spreads into one instead of sectioning out the trackers. But, I think the trackers are so fun because they are a bunch of little doodles combined onto one page.
And because I can… maybe that’s the wrong answer. But it’s true!
So, instead, I’m lumping together the rest of the pages. Like Halloween cover pages, monthly overviews, and weeklies. But, that doesn’t mean these aren’t equally as cool.
You will find so much amazing inspiration from these October bullet journal pages.
I love the simplicity of this weekly spread. The extra doodles are all it took to give this spread a chic and minimalistic Halloween vibe.
I love the all-black vibe in this monthly overview. It has a lot of creativity, but also offers a lot of functionality with the larger sized calendar.
If this cover page isn’t everything your Halloween Spirit has been dreaming of, then I’m not sure how to impress you. I love the large title in the center of two pages and the matching corner doodles all the way around.
This haunted house is way too cute! And the color scheme is to die for.
Need a fun Halloween theme idea for your bullet journal? What about dark magic? This spread oozes with magical witchy vibes.
Talk about functionality AND aesthetic. Nicole always blows me away with her ability to create spreads that are efficient and still stunning.
This has been one of my all-time favorite weeklies. I’m not sure if it’s because it’s Halloween themed and it only comes once a year. So, it’s like a rarity. Or maybe it’s because of the circular weekly layout or the black and orange contrast.
Easy Halloween Doodles + FREE Printable Guide
One of the best ways to add a spooky touch to your bullet journal is with easy Halloween doodles. So, I want to share some of my favorite easy Halloween doodles with you today.
The faint gray lines represent pencil lines and the black lines are where you should use a fineline pen. I highly recommend picking up some Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pens. They are amazing for doodling and come in a nice variety of nib sizes.
