March is almost here so it’s time to find a perfect theme for your March Bullet Journal!
The month of March is actually a very good month for ideas! From St. Patrick’s Day and spring to International Women’s Day and daffodils – there is a vast array of ideas waiting for you! From all of the ideas, I picked out 10 for your March Bullet Journal theme.
All of the cover pages are hand-drawn but not all of the ideas are mine. The authors of these amazing ideas must get credit for their creativity. I drew these myself so I can show you that you, too, although you think you can’t draw – can make this! If I did it, so can you!
Well, March Bullet Journal theme ideas are:

It’s definitely impossible not to include anything related to St. Patrick’s Day in a March Bullet Journal! I wanted to keep it simple with this shamrock banner that anyone can make, and although it’s not very visible on the photo, a touch of glitter on the letters adds to that festive note!
2. Pot of Gold
It was hard to decide with which Irish theme should I go for March Bullet Journal so I decided to include both 🙂 This pot of gold is very simple to make and looks great as a cover page!
3. Art Deco
Since the twenties came again, I realized I really liked the Art Deco style so it was inevitable to use it at least once again this year (other than January). I love these simple lines and just a touch of gold that elevates this March cover page to another level.
4. Hot air balloon
This is a super cute cover page for March and it is super simple to make! I used this idea I found on Pinterest and simplified it a bit. Making a hot air balloon is really a simple task so even if you think you’re not artistic enough, believe me – you can do it!
5. International Women’s Day
March is the month in which we celebrate International Women’s Day and I simply had to include it in my list of ideas for March cover page. Since I really don’t know how to draw complicated stuff, I decided on this simple sign with a quote from Maya Angelou – and I think it looks awesome!
6. Green wreath
Spring is almost here and everything is starting to change color into green – and I love it! The waking up of nature after the winter always seems like a miracle. Of course, I needed to include something green (other than St. Patrick’s shamrocks) on this list so here it is: the wreath of green plants!
While I was searching for ideas for the March cover page list, I found out that daffodils are March birth flowers. That’s why they are a perfect idea for your March Bullet Journal. And if you don’t know how to draw a daffodil (like me), here is a perfect tutorial that will help you!
I found this birthday card the other day and it looked like a beautiful idea for a cover page! I honestly thought that daisies don’t grow so early in the year but then I realized – it’s almost spring! And while searching for something green for my photos, I found a bunch of daisies in my backyard!
9. Moroccan tiles
This idea has nothing to do with March but I think it’s a great idea for any month of the year! I really wanted to do this Moroccan tiles for quite some time but it all seemed so complicated. Then I found this idea on Pinterest and decided to recreate it. And I love it – absolutely love it! Blue is my favorite color so this is my favorite idea for a cover page ever!
Before I realized I would love the Moroccan tiles so much, I opted for this colorful page for my March theme. This technique was always my favorite when I didn’t know what to draw: just make random lines on the paper and draw each part different color! It’s always different and it’s very soothing to make!
