24 Bullet Journal Theme Ideas for Every Month of the Year | Bullet Journal Monthly Layout | Bullet Journal Inspiration

Let me set the scene. You’re sitting down to brainstorm your next bullet journal theme idea, and nothing pops to your head. We’ve all been there! It can be hard sometimes to find a theme that works for you, and that you want to use the whole month.

I’m definitely not saying that you need to pick a theme and stick with it for the whole month, I am queen of a different colour scheme on every page. However, it can sometimes be fun to pick a theme and run with it for a whole month – it’s definitely a fun way to tell your bullet journal pages apart!

I’ve compiled a list of bullet journal theme ideas for each month of the year, I hope that you find something that works for you. I would love to see what you do with these ideas, tag me in your posts on instagram! I didn’t include photos on purpose because I would love to see your original ideas. If you would like to see some ideas with each theme Pinterest has an unbelievable amount of inspiration!

For each month I’ve included two theme ideas, with different colours/doodles you could include 🙂
