It’s finally Spring season! This means I can’t wait to show you the best April bullet journal cover ideas to try this month.
Spring is definitely my favorite season. Days are longer, flowers start blooming and the weather is no longer cold every single day. Being outside and sunny days makes me happy, this is why I love creating my April bullet journal monthly spread.
April is one of the months in terms of bullet journaling because you can go for a colorful theme with lots of plants, flowers, and vibrant colors.
Finding the coolest bullet journal ideas and showing them to you is the best part of the month, so here are 20 April bullet journal cover ideas you can easily copy!
What Do You Need?
If you’re just starting out on your BuJo journey, you don’t need to spend hundreds of money on professional tools as a lot of established bullet journals recommend you. Instead, I got more affordable options that do exactly the same:
Journal. I use this bullet journal I got for a really inexpensive price on Amazon. The pages are dotted, which makes it easier to draw straight lines and perfect squares. It has been designed exclusively for bullet journaling as you can see on the front cover. On the first page, it has a blank space led by “This bullet journal belongs to” that you can fill in with your name. The best thing is that it doesn’t bleed, so you can use watercolors and markers!
Pens. I use the Pigma Micron black finalizers for writing titles and lines. These are a bit more expensive than usual, but you can get a pack of 6 for a really good price on Amazon. Each one has a different size, so you can do everything with them and you won’t need to purchase any other pens. When bullet journaling, pens are probably the thing that you’re going to use the most, so investing in good ones from the beginning is a great idea.
Stickers. Adding stickers into your bullet journal is the easiest and quickest way to decorate it. If you aren’t good at drawing, you can substitute drawings for stickers – or you can combine both! I make my own bullet journal stickers because it saves me so much money.
Markers. I personally prefer minimalist bullet journals with clean spreads, so I’m not a big fan of markers. However, I add small touches of color here and there and I do it with my favorite markers. If you like decorating your bullet journal with a lot of colors I highly recommend investing in a pack of good quality markers that will last you long.
