It may seem like October bullet journal spreads are all about Halloween, but there are plenty of design ideas that don’t involve ghosts and witches.

Here are 21 creative ideas for October bullet designs that capture the autumn season and all its beauty without going down the spooky route.

1. Calendar with Pumpkins

If you’re looking for something on the elegant side, this calendar is perfect. It looks like watercolor has been used here and I really love it. The addition of the night sky and stars is beautiful as well.

Use a border of flowers, leaves, and anything autumn-related to frame the word “October” in your bullet journal.

3. Beautiful Fall Leaves

If you’re looking for more of a fall theme for your October cover page, consider doing something like this. Half the page is filled with gorgeous fall leaves. If I were to do something similar, I think that it would be cool to write out “October” using a script font.

A hand-drawing calendar with a design of teapot and leaves is both cute and autumn appropriate. Play around with fall-themed color palettes when making your calendar.

5. Mushrooms and Leaves

This isn’t a cover page, but could definitely be one if you write “October” in place of “Autumn Doodles.” This could also give you some ideas for doodles to include in your own bullet journal.

8. Whale in a Jar

Here’s something a bit different. This design features a whale in a jar surrounded by clouds. The chosen color palette is unusual for fall, but that’s what makes this design so intriguing.
