In this article, we'll guide you through 20 creative ideas to decorate your bullet journal for Halloween, capturing the spirit of this holiday on every page.
Let's dive in!
1. October Cover Page: Your October cover page sets the tone for your Halloween-themed journal. Consider a haunted forest, a spooky graveyard, or a charming pumpkin patch as the backdrop. Add Paperwrld's Halloween collection stickers or washi tape to make it even more captivating.
Take inspiration from @bujo_by_abi, who created a black and white cover with ghostly and the word "October" at the center.
Another October Cover Example is by @oliwia.journal: she has opted for a dark background and incorporated whitish outlined images depicting ghosts, pumpkins, skulls, bats, the moon, and stars. It gives the impression of an eerie starry sky.
Another Idea Comes from @amanitajournals: she, also on a dark background, has chosen to represent pumpkins with different and macabre expressions using muted green, blue, and violet colors.
A Different, Less Macabre but More Autumnal Idea is from @journalbambie: she has portrayed pumpkins of various sizes arranged vertically, appearing to spill out from an envelope.
2. Monthly Calendar: Create a Halloween-inspired monthly calendar with pumpkin motifs, witches' hats, or candy corn borders. Highlight important dates like Halloween parties and pumpkin carving nights.
You can draw inspiration from @journal.away, who crafted a calendar on a black background and depicted a haunted house on the adjacent page using dark and gray tones, creating a hauntingly beautiful scene.
Another delightful example comes from @curiouslycandace, who designed a monthly calendar in vibrant orange hues. Adorned with pumpkin stickers, leaves, crystal balls, and a list of macabre events for the month, it's a perfect representation of Halloween's spirited charm.
Let these creative examples inspire your Halloween-themed monthly calendar, and don't forget to mark those spooktacular dates in style!
3. Habit Tracker: Transform your habit tracker into a spooky scene by drawing a graveyard with tombstones representing your habits. Color in the tombstones as you complete each task, making it a playful way to track your routines.
Let's delve into a unique Halloween-inspired habit tracker idea brought to life by the talented @_byabdo. In this creative tracker, four distinct pumpkins take center stage, each representing a different habit you want to track. This is a fun and visually engaging way to keep yourself accountable while embracing the Halloween spirit.
4. Mood Tracker: Craft a mood tracker with Halloween-themed icons like witches' hats, ghosts, and broomsticks. Color in or decorate these icons based on your daily mood. It's a fun way to reflect on how the season affects your emotions.
We have here some creative and fun mood trackers for inspiration, including one by @moxiedori: she's mood tracker features a bat divided into sections that can be colored based on the mood of the day.
Another unique mood tracker is by @stephanymarieshop: In her mood tracker, she arranges pumpkins in a row, and within each pumpkin, she draws a face that reflects the mood of the day. Each pumpkin essentially becomes a visual representation of how she feels on different days. This creative approach allows her to track her daily moods in a fun and visually engaging way, where the facial expressions on the pumpkins convey her emotions.
Another fantastic mood tracker is from @leftyartlover: Instead of relying on color codes, she use adorable bat doodles to express ther emotions. Each bat is assigned a face that corresponds to her mood for the day. Each bat becomes a charming visual representation of their emotional journey throughout the month.
What a creative and personalized way to track moods! Feel free to take inspiration from this imaginative mood tracker for your own journal. 🦇😊
5. Weekly Calendar: For your weekly calendar, infuse the spirit of Halloween by incorporating elements like spiderwebs, bats, and moon phases. This not only makes your schedule visually appealing but also keeps you in the Halloween mood throughout the month.
Create a spine-chilling weekly planner with the addition of spooky drawings, stickers, or other elements, just like @plan.with.becca. She has crafted a weekly planner adorned with witch-themed stickers and other eerie decorations that are perfect for embracing the Halloween spirit.
6. Bucket List: Make a Halloween bucket list filled with exciting activities such as haunted house visits, costume planning, or attending a fall festival. Decorate the page with Paperwrld's Halloween-themed stickers to make it pop.

Include items like hosting a Halloween party, baking Halloween cookies, designing your Halloween costume, and more. She has crafted a spine-chillingly delightful Halloween bucket list page.
