Use Berries To Add Dashes of Color

Capture The Winter’s Natural Beauty

Go All Out with Stars
A star does not only look great on top of your tree, but it can also fit perfectly in your December bullet journal!
Save Your Energy
Just because it’s the holidays does not mean you have to go crazy with your December spread. The holidays can be incredibly busy, so save some time and do a simple spread. A bit of color and a few doodles can go a long way.
Ignore The Holidays
Even if you are here for Christmas bullet journal ideas, you may want to consider some other options. As we move into December, the holidays are going to be everywhere. Once that happens, you may prefer not to have your bullet journal decked out in holiday colors.
Hang Some Ornaments
Ornaments are a great way to add a bit of color to your monthly layout.
Turn It Into A Tracker
Your December bullet journal does not have just to be a cover page. You can easily turn that cover page into a tracker or log!
Enjoy the Present
Nothing says Christmas like a tree and presents! So remind yourself of the joy to come and include them in your December bullet journal.
Add Cute Woodland Creatures
Think of cute bunnies, little birds, and other happy forest creatures as you create your December bullet journal spread!
Go With A Classic
Keep your bullet journal simple yet beautiful by including a nice hand-lettered header and a few doodles. I know this looks difficult, but creating a header like this is pretty simple. See how here.
Countdown To Christmas
