15 Incredible Bullet Journal Calendar Spread Ideas

The first page of a new month in your bullet journal is super exciting but nervewracking as well. Since this calendar page will be the start to a new month, you’re going to want it to be near perfect, am I right?

If you’re been looking for the absolute best bullet journal calendar ideas to include, then you’ve come to the right place.

Here we have included different designs and layouts to try at least once during the year. You’ll also find a few themed ideas and a range of colorful spreads to try out.

There are a few black and white spreads if you’re into minimalism but I can assure that each and every layout is gorgeous!

How To Choose The Perfect Calendar Spread?

First up, let’s take a quick look at which spread will be the best for you. There are four ways to use a calendar spread in your bullet journal:

  • As a landscape
  • Full page spread
  • Two-page spread
  • At the corner of the page

If you plan to keep track of important dates, appointments, meetings, and birthdays, then you might need a calendar that has sufficient space to track as many things as you can, especially if you foresee a busy month ahead.

A landscape, full-page, or even a two-page spread will be the ideal one to choose for this purpose however if you’re not looking to have this kind of spread taking up so much space, there’s a fantastic idea at the bottom of this roundup that will show you how to incorporate a mini-calendar that isn’t intrusive.

The majority of these layouts are really easy to recreate which you will see in a second but each of them is definitely worth the shot and effort.

This calendar theme can be used for just about any month. If you’re looking for a bright and colorful theme to set the mood for the month, then I highly recommend trying out this one. 

You can use Washi tape to create those blue borders and to stick the different colors for the days of the week.

Alternatively, just grab a few markers to do the job. Finish off by drawing a cute doodle at each corner.

It’s easy to forget adding a calendar sometimes but here’s an option if you really need to add one but don’t quite have space for it.

On an already used page, simply pop a cute one like this at the above corner of the page and it won’t mess up your current design.
