It is quite incredible how fast this year is going, although most of us are practically standing still, with all the pandemic and lockdowns and quarantines. As life became much simpler in the past few months I guess it’s time for the simplest October Bullet journal ideas.
Working on October Bullet journal ideas I came to the conclusion that I really like patterns. There are practically no artistic skills necessary to use one pattern and turn it into a great cover page for your Bullet journal.
Since it’s October, it’s obvious that most of the ideas have something to do with fall and Halloween. Although Halloween is not a thing in my country, I think the Halloween ideas for a Bullet journal are amazing – they are super simple and I really like how they turn out.
Without further ado, check out the simplest October bullet journal ideas:

If you’ve seen any of the posts with Bullet journal theme ideas this year you’ve noticed Art Deco is always there as an idea. It is not only because the twenties have again arrived but because it is really the simplest possible idea for an amazing cover page. Whether you choose to make it full black or add a hint of gold, any Art Deco pattern you choose will be amazing and all you need to know is how to handle a ruler for the straight lines. And that’s it! You don’t have to be an artist to create an Art…Deco cover page 🙂
One thing that will always be the simplest idea for your Bullet journal theme is bubbles. You can make them in any pattern you want – as you can see here in a post Easy September Bullet journal ideas, I’ve also included bubbles but in a completely different form. My idea with letters floating in different bubbles looks kind of funny, I think I somewhat messed up the order – should’ve gone vertically instead of horizontally. Nevertheless, the color combination I chose also remind me of Halloween – the bubbles look like they’ve escaped from the witches cauldron 🙂
It’s October – the weather is getting colder so it’s time for all the comfort food you can have 🙂 Hence the donuts. Nothing better than a sweet sugary treat on a cold day (donuts and cinnamon rolls are my picks, definitely). Drawing donuts is super simple, you only need to know how to draw a circle and it doesn’t even have to be perfectly round – and that’s it. I know it’s not so visible on the image but the sprinkles on my donuts are made with glitter gel pens so they also have a bit of sparkle and make a perfect yet simple October Bullet journal idea.
What does Greece have with October? I have no clue whatsoever. But as I was thinking about the simplest October Bullet journal ideas that would look awesome, somehow I stumbled upon this idea. Drawing a Greek-style pattern is incredibly easy, you just need a bit of concentration and that’s it. And I love the blue on the white combination – it really looks something else 🙂
If you were looking for really the simplest October Bullet journal idea here it is – the Halloween candy! There is nothing simpler to draw and it looks great! I realized that I love this repetitive pattern as it is really the easiest way to fill the whole page and for it to look great.
It’s fall. So the leaves fall. And the leaves are also one of those simple yet great ideas for your Bullet journal theme. Now that I look at this image of a leaf cover page, I think it would probably be way cooler if I’ve put that leaf instead of the letter “t”. What do you think? It would probably look cooler. So, here’s the idea for you 🙂
I don’t know how is it where you live but the rains have started to fall heavily here in Croatia so it’s almost time to go mushroom picking in the woods. Luckily, I have loads of forest on the hills around me that hold the abundance of different mushrooms. I only pick two types and this one drawn is one type I pick. I don’t know its name but I know that this is an amazing idea for your October Bullet journal.
Pumpkin Spice Latte
There are a lot of people who can’t wait for fall because of one thing – the pumpkin spice lattes. Well, we don’t have a Starbucks in our country so I’m not familiar with the appeal of such a latte. Although I do love pumpkin spice so I can presume I would love it. Maybe I’ll try to make it myself 🙁 As I did this drawing of a pumpkin spice latte (without the Starbucks logo because I realized there is no way I would be able to draw it :)).
This repetitive pumpkin pattern is also one of the simplest October Bullet journal ideas and I must admit I really like it! I loved drawing it and I really like looking at it. I should’ve chosen pumpkins as my theme this month… They are really cute, they are super simple to draw and they look amazing! If you want your pumpkins to have more Halloween-look, just add carved faces on the pumpkins 🙂
As I already mentioned, we do not celebrate Halloween here where I live but that doesn’t mean I can’t use it as my theme for my October Bullet journal. This is also one of the simplest Bullet journal themes I ever made. Making a spiderweb is really simple and easy – you just need a bit of concentration to follow the web and that’s it. It really couldn’t be simpler and it looks quite good if I might add. and the little spiders are a great touch 🙂
Okay, that’s it. The list of the simplest October Bullet journal ideas is here. So, what will be your choice this month? Are you going for Halloween, fall or something completely unrelated? Share your ideas with me in the comments or on Instagram using #monthlyuglyjournal.
