November Bullet Journal Cover Ideas
Cute November Bullet Journal Forest Themed Cover
First and foremost, let's start with this cute forest-themed cover page for November.
Definitely, it's so creative idea to arrange the fall scene, including the sweet hedgehog hiding in the cup of tea.
Indeed, fall is all about hot beverages, falling leaves, and cute woodland animals.
Woodland Theme For November Bullet Journal Planner
Alternatively, you can always get a more whimsical approach to the bullet journal woodland theme.
For example, this planner cover page for November contains two, cartoony mushrooms, hedgehog (yet again), pink sky, and sweet Kawaii cloud.
By the way, the author used a pastel Tombow Brushpen set I'm really obsessed with.
Fall Bujo Cover
On the other hand, is there any more classic November theme than a fall wreath?
This one includes yellow and brown oak leaves, acorns, and red hawthorn (I suppose).
Also, I love the author replaced the "o" letter with an acorn.
Definitely, fall vibes.
Pumpkin Bujo Cover Inspiration
The next November bullet journal cover features my three favorite fall themes: coffee, pumpkins, and cozy sweaters.
Moreover, all elements were arranged as part of the shelf styling.
Unquestionably, let's get cozy this month.
Coffee Themed Planner First Page
In contrast to the previous bujo page, this planner cover is simpler.
Nevertheless, it's still beautiful.
Undoubtedly, this cup of coffee gives me so much joy.
Also, I really love having my daily dose of caffeine in double wall glass coffee cups.
Coffee Theme Inspo For November Notebook
Along with this, feel free to take a coffee theme to completely another level and draw the entire coffee shop.
Definitely, making this type of monthly bullet journal cover takes a lot of dedication.
Just imagine doodling all furniture pieces, coffee mugs, and even plants.
But the end effect is stunning.
Scrapbook Bujo Cover Page
However, for those of you who aren't ready to spend many hours, doodling a November bullet journal cover, this is a great alternative.
Indeed, using a scrapbooking technique to create a monthly cover seems to be a little bit less time-consuming task.
In this case, just take pieces of scrapbooking paper, print out cute Instagram fall photos, and design a collage.
November Planner Page With A Coffee (Or Tea) Drawing
To be completely honest, I don't know whether it's a cup of tea or coffee.
Assuming these three leaves are tea leaves, this is a cup of tea drawing.
So let's spill the tea during the most bizarre month of the year.
Matcha Theme Inspo For November Bujo Title Page
Speaking of tea drawing, this matcha-inspired November bujo title page is very aesthetic pleasant.
For me, a huge fan of Instagram flat lays (hello 2015), the cover is great reminiscent of my early stages on this social media platform.
And the muted green-brown combo is everything.
Bujo Cover With Umbrella And Rain Boots Doodles
Ok, let's leave the coffee theme behind.
The next popular November bujo theme is anything connected with rainy days: umbrellas, rain boots, grey clouds, etc.
But these rain boots are yellow and the umbrella is so colorful that even rainy days seem to be more bearable.
Cute Cover Idea For School Notebook
The next pretty common November theme is seasonal fruit and veggies.
For instance, here you can see a picnic scene with a classic red and white blanket and veggie doodles.
Definitely, it's the healthiest picnic I've ever seen.
Bujo Theme With Apple Drawings
Along with this, apples
Sunflower Bullet Journal
When it comes to sunflower bullet journal, I feel always torn.
Although sunflowers are undoubtedly beautiful and easy flowers to draw, I just don't see them as a bullet journal theme for November.
Nevertheless, bullet journaling is all about fitting planner pages to your needs and preferences.
With this in mind, if you want sunflowers on your November bullet journal cover that go for it.
Floral Theme For Monthly Planner
Again, I'm not head over heels in love with choosing a floral theme for this month.
However, what doesn't work for me doesn't mean it won't work for you.
From time to time it may be worth stepping out of your comfort zone and draw spring flowers in November.
Cute Bujo Cover
Similar to the previous first page, this one gives me almost the same vibes.
Again, the color scheme doesn't scream November to me.
But I always try to keep my mind open and the embroidery theme is really cute.
Also, I love how the author was able to obtain the 3D effect on embroideries.
Plant Theme Inspiration For A Cover Page
Along with this, here you can see plant-themed bujo inspiration.
And while I'm not used to seeing a lot of greenery on November planner covers, this one include a quote:
"you will always harvest what you plant".
And honestly, I totally buy it, especially before the entire New Year season.
Music Themed Bullet Journal
This is another example of how you can use scrapbook paper in your personal planner.
By entering newspapers and using a cool sticker you make easily your monthly cover page with a wow factor.
Also, I love how newspapers interlace the sticker with a vintage adapter and rustic boxes.
Black & White Journal Cover
I'm sure you'll think this is the cutest, most creative bullet journal cover page around.
Definitely, I love how it has a dark background with a massive jar, tiny fireflies, and stars.
It gives off such moody, magical vibes!
Minimalist Bujo Cover For November
On the other hand, a minimalist bullet journal cover page is the perfect option to choose, especially if you're feeling overwhelmed with using bold colors.
Here you can see simple feather drawings in muted green, dark gold, and tan.
Again, it's a simple but elegant notebook November cover.
Simple Notebook Cover
Similar to the previous example, this bujo page features an easy plane doodle.
The only stronger accent is the bullet journal title, where each letter was written in a different color.
However, those colors work perfectly together so it doesn't bother me at all.
Paris Themed Planner Cover Page
Now it's time to introduce you to more complex bujo designs.
For example, here you can see a view from the window in Paris.
Again very romantic and unique choice for the November theme.
Amsterdam Theme For Bujo
Unquestionably, I'm obsessed with urban sketching.
And while this Amsterdam-themed bujo cover is pretty simple, I feel it in it.
There's something different and beautiful in drawing buildings and street scenes.
Boho Inspired Cover With An Abstract Art
The last two DIY planner cover pages are so artistic.
The first features modern abstract art with two faces and organic shapes, all in neutral, earthy tones.
Definitely, I could transfer the design to canvas and hang it in my apartment.
Artistic Bullet Journal Cover Page
On the other hand, the devil's in the detail.
Usually having visible markers' strokes annoys me but in this case, it gives the entire landscape the extra dimension.
Plus the combo of deep blue color with neutrals is amazing.
November Bullet Journal Cover Themes
Definitely, November is a strange month.
First of all, you’re probably tired of pumpkin everything.
Secondly, Halloween is already behind us (and incorporating the Halloween bullet journal theme was so much fun).
Thirdly, you can’t wait to decorate your empty notebook with some cute Christmas bullet journal ideas.
However, creating November bujo spreads with ornaments, gingerbread houses, and Santa Claus seems to be a little bit off.
At least for me.
With this in mind, here you can find some November bujo theme inspiration.
Sometimes the start of November means shorter days, less sunlight, and gloomy weather.
To get you out of a mid-morning slump, drinking a coffee sounds really nice.
Also, decorating your monthly bullet journal pages with coffee doodles will help you to deal with colder evenings.
And you have plenty of options to choose from.
For example, you can doodle:
- Starbucks inspired pumpkin spice latte
- cute Kawaii espresso
- a double wall glass coffee cup with caramel macchiato
For instance, I decided to combine two November bullet journal themes: coffee and woodland.
Basically, I drew a cute hedgehog who’s relaxing on the coffee’s steam.
In my opinion, this November bullet journal cover turned out really pretty.
Speaking of woodland themes, there are so many approaches to execute it in your notebook.
For example, you can choose cute animal doodles in pastel colors.
Alternatively, feel free to doodle rustic wooden branches, fall leaves, acorns, keeping the color palette in a dark moody vibes.
Again, there’s nothing wrong with fall bullet journal themes.
Although after two entire months doodling fall wreaths with leaves, acorns, pumpkins, mushrooms, I was happy to switch gears.
For instance, I live in a climate where fall in November means rain.
And to be completely honest, it’s not my favorite type of weather.
However, when it comes to the November bullet journal theme, I love it.
Basically, think about drawing colorful rain boots, yellow umbrellas, or even gloomy grey sky.
For example, this November bullet journal cover was inspired by the “How I met your mother” series and the “Singing in the Rain” movie.
Definitely, a great combo for rainy days.
On the other hand, I can’t imagine November without adding a cozy, hygge style to my life.
And hygge is all about being comfortable.
So if you’re wondering how to add a hint of it to your bujo layouts, here’re some bullet journal doodle ideas:
- warm sweater
- knitted socks
- hot chocolate
- soup (and other comfort food)
Along with these, I noticed that whimsical themes are quite popular for the November bullet journal.
Crystals, magic elixirs, stars, moon, constellation-all these elements create whimsical notebook decoration.
Alternatively, feel free to stick with simple cover ideas.
As you know, I love minimalist bullet journal designs.
Sometimes all you need is to choose basic things or shape and keep it monochromatic, but still interesting.
November Bullet Journal Cover Ideas – Final Thoughts
November is almost here and it’s time to start getting your bullet journal ready.
Although sometimes it could be challenging to enjoy this month, I try to appreciate it.
Definitely, I’m grateful for the leaves changing color and slowly falling off the trees, the very crisp cold air that almost hurts your lungs (but it’s what you’ve been missing for all summer), Thanksgiving dinner with friends & family, and of course the start of the holiday season.
Also, I can finally put away all those bright fun colors and go for something more muted.
Recently I’ve realized that November isn’t just about the month, it’s also about my life-changing.
And bullet journaling has been a life-changer for me.
Although I used to be so bad at keeping any type of planners, now it’s my favorite thing.
Definitely, you can express yourself in so many different ways.
Because who says that designing a pastel cover for the November DIY planner is a bad thing.
It may be not my thing but who honestly cares?
Because the best part is that there’s no right or wrong way of doing it.
