1. Bones / Skeletons
Bones is always such a fun doodle that you can use for Halloween! Bones/ skeletons are a must in every Halloween party, why not on your bujo?
Skulls are also super fun to use as a Theme! There are different types of skulls that you can illustrate, from humans to animals, from the top part of the skull to the bottom part of that! I love sketching Skulls btw XD.
3. Crime scene
Do you like Crime documentaries, or maybe Series…. that yellow tape, body mark, the mystery, omg that sounds so interesting! Crime Scene can be such a wide inspiration for every person, I didn’t call this theme idea as a Serial Killer theme, but you certainly can do that!
Ghosts are also a must in every Halloween Party!! From cute ghosts to really creepy ghosts, they can be really fun to create on a theme! And they are certainly not hard to doodle!
I promise I’m ok ahahaha, Blood can be a fun theme for a dripped theme, medical purposes, and those blood bags we see on Vampire Shows…. I think you got the idea, but if I’d do that as a theme, probably I’d grab red paint and splash all the spreads just to create that creepy aesthetic lmao.
6. Black Cats
You know where I want to end with this theme idea…… black cats are the cutest, you should definitely create one!!!
Witches are very common at a Halloween Party, they are all so different, so interesting, with a mysterious background, from witch hats, brooms, and grimoires, you can be inspired by the Witchery Aesthetic!
I love Vampire Series, they are so interesting, I had those fake teeth when I was a kid, so it sounded like a must to include a vampire theme in this list!
Like Vampires, what would be a Halloween without Werewolves? From claws, and scratches, to cute wolfs, you can have so much fun with werewolves as a theme for Halloween!
10. Broken Mirrors
I always wanted to make a Broken Mirror theme, just the idea of having shatters on my spreads sounds amazing in my head!
I love the idea of making a Tarot theme! It’s so fun and mysterious to me, the cards are beautiful and their meaning are so cool! Imagine making a tarot reading and using those cards as your theme for your bujo?!
12. Moon Phases
Don’t you just love the moon?! You can do such beautiful themes with it’s phases with watercolors, stickers, doodles, etc! Moon themes are honestly my favorite to watch!
13. Eye Balls
Another creepy theme is Eye Balls! You can have fun drawing some circles and veins and create an eye ball, in a cup, in a jar, just by itself! You can make it creepy or make it cute, it’s up to you!
14. Dust / Fog
Those foggy forests are so cool to create, the aesthetic of a fog environment is so beautiful and maybe you can create a collage with that aesthetic as well, there are a lot of beautiful and interesting photos of fog/dust environments!
I have never thought of how beautiful a Moth illustration could be until recently! Moths are such a fun animal to create for Halloween time!
16. Hocus Pocus
Entering in the Movie-inspired themes, Hocus Pocus is a fun idea to create a theme on Halloween!
17. Adams Family
I never fail to watch at least one of the Adams Family movies on Halloween, and making a theme inspired by that movie sounds so amazing!
18. Ghost Animals
Ghost animals can be illustrated using a blue-toned art supply, like a spirit maybe, they are so cute and bring the creepy vibe as well that is perfect for Halloween!
19. Torture Devices
This theme is inspired by some of the torture devices that I saw on Adams Family, it could be fun to create a theme around it, in case you’re into that kind of stuff XD.
Scream is such an iconic movie with Ghostface! That could be such a great theme! With the mask and a knife maybe!
My favorite saga is the Saw saga, the whole aesthetic, with the jigsaw, the masks, the games, that would be so cool to see in a theme, I imagine it as a collage with a picture here and there and some color matching papers and washi! *-*
22. Corpse Bride
Corpse Bride is such an amazing animated Halloween movie, I saw some incredible Corpse Bride-inspired spreads around the community, and it makes so much sense to make one, and it’s perfect for Halloween time!
23. Friday 13th
Another movie that could be such an interesting Halloween theme!
Wax can be an amazing and creative theme if you make different objects, people, and houses, in wax! Playing with yellows and oranges perhaps!
Halloween without candles isn’t the same! Candles are so cool to create, they match so many things, they bring cozy vibes, and creepy vibes and the best part is that you decide what you want to create with them!
Rituals are super interesting to watch in movies and shows, probably not in real life though…., but having those as inspiration for a theme sounds so cool!
27. Jack O Lantern
Jack O lanterns are so epic and fun to create as a theme on your Bullet Journal! And the best part is that it’s actually not that hard to create one!
Personally, I have fear of snakes, but their pattern, the illustrations, and the aesthetic they have are so beautiful! A snake theme might be a perfect theme for Halloween! (Or maybe a tattoo XD)
Another animal that I am afraid of, Spiders! They are a perfect fit for Halloween, having some spirder doodles as a theme for Halloween can be a very cute idea!
30. Spider Webs
Following with the Spider Theme. Making Spider webs is also a great idea for a Halloween theme! You can make so many different webs and add some Lil cute spiders as well!
Bats are also creatures of the night, very cute if I may, and fun to add to a Halloween Theme!
Candy is also something that comes to my mind when I think of Halloween! There is a lot of candy that is eaten on Halloween, maybe that can be your inspo for this theme!
33. Dia de Los Muertos
Dia de Los Muertos is a Mexican tradition that is so beautiful and meaningful, that also inspired a lot of Halloween looks every year! Maybe it can also inspire you on a bullet journal theme!
34. Haunted House
A haunted house is so fun, you can create a house and it’s scary elements, maybe it’s old, maybe it’s all broken, just imagine your haunted house and create a theme with that!
Aren’t Owls the cutest?? Owls are so pretty and they match so well the Halloween aesthetic!
Potions are such a cool theme! I have seen so many people doing their own potion themes, and omg it’s so fun!
Zombies are a great Halloween costume and creating a little zombie as a character for maybe a story for that month theme could be so fun!
38. Grave Stones
Grave Stones are perfect for a creepy Halloween theme or maybe a cute theme if you do it tiny and with flowers!
Runes are so cool, in my head I think of glowing runes and that’s so cool! Have fun learning about runes and create a Theme filled with runes!
This theme is self-explanatory, you can create an ouija board theme, kinda creepy but super interesting and fun!
Magic is an amazing theme for all months, but especially Halloween! Wands, wizards, potions, magic, and sparkles!
42. Childs Play
Another fun horror movie that you can turn into a theme is Childs Play! Chucky is the main character, maybe he can inspire you in a theme as well!
43. Beetle Juice
Recently I watched Beetle Juice, and it’s characters and colors could definitletly inspire you on a Halloween theme! But don’t say that name 3 times…. don’t say I didn’t warn you lmao
44. The Nightmare Before Christmas
Another great movie with Jack Sckelington that is perfect for Halloween! Jack is so cute and I bet you loved that movie! So try and create your fave characters into a whole theme!
45. Chain Saw
I have never seen a Chain Saw theme, but making cute chain saw’s can be perfect for Halloween, can you imagine little doodles of that?!
Chocolate is a theme perfect for every month as well, but it can also fit for Halloween!
Halloween is during fall, and pumpkins are the best Halloween “but not really” theme for the season, in case you want to mix Pumpkins with Jack o Lanterns that would be so fun!
Same as Grave Stones, a Graveyard theme can mix ghosts, flowers and gravestones, and you can create a full realistic graveyard as well as a small doodle one!
49. Dead Flowers
Flowers are always amazing themes for every month, but Dead Flowers, mixing may be dried flowers or just less saturated flower illustrations!
Roses are amazing for Halloween, because of their saturated red and the spikes. They fit in a dark theme with their petals falling, or just on their own!
Just like the crime scene theme, in this theme, you can have fun stamping your own fingertips in a crime type of theme!
Another animal that makes total sense for Halloween is Crows, they are so pretty and making a theme with Crows and flowers would be so gorgeous!
In case you love Wicked, why not making a whole theme of it for Halloween?!
Coco might be my favorite Disney movie, it made me cry so much but it’s so beautiful! It reminds me of dia de Los Muertos, but make it more animated and character focused!
55. Creepy Quotes
Maybe you want a minimal theme, for that you can add some creepy quotes, or horror movie quotes that you find matching to your liking!
For a Slime theme, you can either make some slimy borders around the pages, maybe cut outs, and have a slimy Font as well!
57. Crystal Ball
same as Magic themes, a Crystal Ball theme sounds so fun and pretty to make! Can you predict that theme?
58. Gore Core
This last one is heavier, if you like Gore Core, have fun making a collage inspired on that, but if you don’t like that sort of thing, just have fun with soft images with a creepy red marker over those images!
