It’s time to get inspired and plan out the spooky month. In this post, we are sharing some of the best October bullet journal themes and ideas and everything from mood trackers, habit trackers and so much more.
October Bullet Journal Cover Ideas:
For me, cover pages are super important. I love how cover pages feel like a fresh start each month. And if you want to make your bullet journalling journey more enjoyable, cover pages are the way to start. Here are some October cover page ideas:
1.PUT a spell on:
This is such a cute October bullet journal cover page and super simple to do as well. Write October in this faux calligraphy font and draw a shelf. On the shelf put various bottles of potions and add spell books, candles and a few ghosts maybe? Such a great way to start the spooky season right?
2. Pumpkin Cuteness:
October is all about the fall and pumpkins. So, how about this cute cover for October layout? What’s not to like. There are pumpkins, there is this cute kitten and these colors are perfect for October don’t you think?
3. Sweater Weather:
This abstract pattern theme cover is perfect for fall because it’s so cozy. Fall and October is all about coziness and there is a nip in the air and it’s the season of knits and sweaters. So what a fitting theme for your October Bujo cover. And all the fall colors make it look absolutely perfect. Add some pumpkin pies and pumpkins to it and you have yourself a perfect cover for your October layout.
4. Let there be light:
As the evenings and nights start getting longer, this is absolutely perfect to bring in the warmth. Lights are the perfect addition during these longer fall nights. Either it is by using candles, fairy lights, lanterns or simply by making this as your October Cover for your Bullet Journal.
5. Kraft paper Classic:
Kraft paper, black and white go so well together and this October cover page is a whole mood in itself. Add a lovely quote on one side and write October on the other side and you’re sorted. It is super simple to do as well and looks so cozy, which is perfect for the chilly season.
6.Pour me a cuppa:
Another one of my favourite is this one from Bujoforstars. Hot chocolate is probably my favourite drink to have in the winters and there is nothing better than a bug warm cuppa with marshmallows. So why not make it your cover for October Bullet Journal Layout.
7. Explorer theme:
This will probably come as a stark contrast between all the Bullet Journal Ideas for October. Love how this is super minimalistic, with just black and white. Also love how the different planets open up different spreads for the month. This will look super cute with all the autumn things.
8. Celebrating all things Autumn:
If you love the changing colors of trees, the falling leaves, the abundance of pumpkins (because hello! Pumpkin spice everything) then you’ll love this cover idea. Make a couple of leafs in different shapes and color them in pretty neutral fall colors. Add some pumpkins and you’re done.
9. Crystals & Witchcraft:
October also means halloween season and I love how this super simple set up gives all the spooky, whimsical feels. The use of color purple, potion bottles and the smoke makes this setup perfect for the spooky season.
10: Everything I love:
As it goes with any other bullet journal layout, this is such a good inspo for October. Draw things that you absolutely love during that season. So for October, it could be pumpkins, coffee, cozy sweaters in abstract patterns, autumn leafs and hot drinks. Think about what’s your favourite thing about the season is and then get to drawing.
11. Spilled coffee:
When I think about fall, I think about hot drinks and yummy treats. One of my favourite combos ever is cinnamon topped coffee and this spread reminds me of that. So if you love coffee too, this is such a good inspo for your new monthly cover page. You could also try painting with coffee, such a fun little project. And do try to create different textures by sprinkling salt while the coffee is still wet.
12. Foxy Autumn:
What is it about foxes and autumn I will never know. I guess the fact that both match in colors and are super aesthetic to draw? Love this spread from Feather.eaux that depicts it perfectly and the little quote on the left side page doesn’t hurt either.
13. Hello Halloween:
When you have absolutly no idea what to do for October Bullet Journal Cover page, Halloween is the way to go. you can not go wrong with this halloween themed cover page. The fireplace, the candles, pumpkins and spider webs make for the perfect halloween themed bujo spread.
14: Harry Potter theme:
I have always associated Harry potter with fall and especially with October because of all the potions and the spells which is so fitting for the spooky season. So why not create a book cover from one of your favourite books, write October in the classic Harry Potter font and let your imagination take you to Hogwarts.
15: Fall Harvest:
Absolutely in love with this October Bullet Journal spread by herbalblossom. The different harvest of the season coupled with the spooky things like ghosts, bats, spiders, make for a perfect spooky autumn. Also love the idea of continuing the drawing on a different textured paper in white.
16. Minimalistic & Spooky:
I love Bullet Journal cover ideas that are simple to make but still look good and this one if perfect for the spooky season. It wont take you a long time to do it and it still fits the theme perfectly. And how cute is the font?
17. Super Simple & Chic:
Talking about simple designs, this one is another good one. Super simple to make and the mason jar and the stars and moon are such a cute touch, I also love the string lights with stars on the left side page and the little quote. write your favourite quote and add some black torn chart paper for the look.
18: Add a touch of gold:
The lights go perfectly with October theme because it’s the start of gloomy weather. So all things cozy make sense and so goes this touch of gold in the otherwise darker theme. It reminds you that there is always light no matter how gloomy the days might seem.
19. Harvest Season:
This one with all the pumpkins, beetroot and apricots is perfect for fall. Add more of what’s in abundance this season and add a black backdrop to make everything look even fresher and yummier.
20. Hygge it out:
Winter months are all about slow living and appreciating simple moments. And this cover is perfect for October for simply that reason. Draw all of your favourite things that depict intentional living and slow living. It’s all about appreciating little joys in life, isn’t it?
22: Did someone say Witchcraft?
This will probably take a few hours to complete but look how cute it is. And imagine how cool it would be to be a student at a witchcraft school, taking all the spells and potions lessons!
23: Comfort of your home:
As this month is all about coziness, how about drawing your favourite corner of your home on your cover? I love how this one instantly feels so calm and relaxing. When I think about fall evening routine, this is what comes to my mind, sitting on a sofa by the window, with a warm cuppa and reading a good book.
24: Pumpkin Spice latte:
If there is anything that screams fall, it is pumpkin spice latte. And this one is just perfect. With the hot beverage topped with cream and the cinnamon sticks, it will be a constant reminder to make your favourite beverage or to go out and get one. I also love how there are different coffee cut puts on the left page. Goes perfectly with the cover, right?
25: More bats & Pumpkins:
Another cover page that’s perfect if you want to get the halloween feels. The dripping font is perfect with the spooky theme. And how adorably spooky is this pumpkin bat? I bet this will get you all excited to carve some pumpkins.
26: Brown theme:
If you want to go all in with the fall theme and want to fully embrace the changing colors of the leaves, how about his brown theme? Brown is just such a perfect color for the month, isn’t it? And this one with October in black and surrounded by brown leaves, is just so simple to make and yet looks so good.
27: Orange & brown Autumn:
Another simple yet stunning one. With a mix of oranges and browns, this is again perfect for welcoming the new season. And the cursive lettering goes so well with the bubble bold lettering. So cute!
28: Spooky doodle overload:
Another one for all the halloween lovers and such a simple one as well. I love the fact that you don’t need any fancy markers for this spread. Just doodle a bunch of doodles all around “October” in a cursive font. Let your imagination run wild. think of all the things that come to your mind when you think about halloween and doodle a bunch of them.
29: Ramen soup:
This season is all about warm, hearty meals and what better than a ramen soup? If you too love ramen as much as I do, this could be perfect cover page for you. Draw a big bowl of soup and everything that went into it. Looks super colorful and yummy, doesn’t it? And while you are at it, why not make one for real as well?
30: Fall leaves wreath:
I absolutely love this simple design for October Cover page for my bullet journal. The cursive lettering is super cute and the wreath of fall colored leaves all around it, brings the season to life on the page.
31: Leafy Print:
Okay, I am obsessed. So simple, yet so chic, classic, eerie. I am at a loss of words. I absolutely love the print leaves and the fact that it’s all black and white. And can we talk about that lettering for a minute? And the fact that the frame around the lettering is not “complete” makes it look like it’s all fading, just like autumn.
32: Sweaters & Knits:
It’s officially sweater weather and knit season, so why not put it on the cover page of this month’s spread? I love chunky knits and you can go crazy with the colors and patterns on the sweater, even when you don’t know how to knit! I absolutely love how this one is so minimalistic and yet so beautiful.
33. Mushrooms galore:
I am a big fan of making season appropriate covers for bullet Journals and this one fits perfectly. because fall is here, it means that mushrooms are in abundance. you could of course draw something else that you really love. I just can’t stop thinking about a creamy vegan mushroom pasta. Gotta go make some, brb!
34: Crystal Ball Magic:
I can’t say enough about how much I love this spread. but then, I don’t need to, because just look at it! So magical, whimsical. The black backdrop draws you towards the crystal ball and it tells you that it is going to be a good fall.
35: Simple, Minimal, Cute:
Simple, Minimal and cute. Need we say more? Super quick to do and perfect for people who don’t have a lot of experience with art and are not good at drawing.
36: Pumpkin October Page:
This one is so beautiful. I mean there’s even a tab for pumpkin eyes to go from normal to spooky. How cool is that?
37: Never met a Ghost I didn’t like?
I am a sucker for cute spooky designs and this one is so adorable with the little cute ghost coming out of the pumpkin. my absolute favourite. I mean look at the blush on that ghost’s cheeks! So freakin’ cute!
38: On a chilly Night
How about a ghost just chilling in the forest on a dark spooky night for your October Bullet Journal theme. Again, love that it’s simple black and white and yet paints a very spooky picture, but still cute!
39: A lovely Fall Day:
I love that this cover page looks like a painting and the pastel trees look so cute. Also the calendar for October is so minimal and so is the lettering that it doesn’t distract from this very beautiful design.
40: Witch’s Cauldron:
Another really cute ghost and adorably spooky design for your October cover page. I love the cauldron, the hat and the pumpkins and the green soup that you will find eyes in, you know?
41: More Harry Potter please?
If you’re a potter head but want to go for fall themed colors for your October BuJo cover page, here’s one that will be perfect. The spell books and the potions, wands and the sorting hat, everything instantly teleports you to the magical hogwarts!
42: I am the good witch:
Fall is all about being cozy and taking care of yourself and indulging in self care. And this good witch is ready for some extra self love and pampering this season.
43: Pumpkin Lattes and carrot cakes:
Again, all my favourite fall things on one cover page. There is pumpkin spice latte, there is carrot cake, what more do we need in this life No really! And I love the almost neutral color theme as well.
I hope you found these ideas inspiring and will allow you to create a cover page you truly love. Whether it is something super minimal or totally maximalist, do what makes you happy. For me, I am the most excited about cover pages because the mark the beginning of a new month, which means turning the page and new opportunities.
