Hey again! It’s Hayley here (@hayleyremdeart on Instagram), and today I’m going to show you 10 amazing themes bullet journalists used for their December spreads in 2019, to hopefully give you some inspiration for this year!
I always struggle to think of new themes, especially towards the end of the year. So I thought I'd show you what I found on my hunt for December themes. If you need inspiration too, keep on reading!
- Archer and Olive Journal – As always, it will be no surprise to you that my pick is the Archer and Olive Journal. The lovely and thick pages have no bleeding or ghosting, so you get a clean start for every project spread! Also, it means you can decorate the spread without worrying about it.
- Pencil – To carefully plan out your ideas so you can make sure your spread has everything you need.
- Decorative Touch (optional) – This could be anything from washi to acrylographs, or of course, nothing! I usually like to add a personal touch to my spreads so they’re more fun to use and look at.
Disclaimer: These posts are in no particular order. Also, I tried to look for a good variety of styles so you can hopefully find something that fits your bujo!

Rachel has the amazing idea for a theme by bringing the Twelve Days Of Christmas song to life. Now I have this song stuck in my head!

Ok I just had to squeeze mine as a bonus spread here on the end here because I absolutely loved my theme from December 2019. I did I cute snowy northern lights theme with penguins and polar bears. Definitely more on the arty side, but if you're back in lockdown like me it's time to dig out the paints and have some fun creating December spreads!
