8 Ways To Decorate Your Minimalist Bullet Journal

July 14, 2022 3 min read

Bullet journaling is all about streamlining your life. It's a great way to get organised, set goals, and keep track of your daily tasks.

But what if you’re not a fan of the usual bullet journal layouts we see online? What if that feels too cluttered for your needs?

Then maybe a minimalist bullet journal layout is just what you need!

A minimalist layout is a great option for people who want to doodle and design their pages but don’t want to be overwhelmed by them. The pages are free from distractions and fluff so nothing gets in the way of getting your work done.

Minimalist layouts are also easy to maintain because there are fewer things to track and less writing to do each day. You don’t need as much space for writing down appointments or adding lists of things to do; instead, all those details go into one place (your calendar).

Here are 8 different ways to decorate your minimalist bullet journal:

Horizontal and Vertical Lines

The first step to creating a minimalist bullet journal is to add some horizontal lines. You can do this by using a ruler and a pencil, or you can simply draw them freehand—it doesn't matter how you do it as long as you create them! These lines are one of the easiest ways to create an organised and clean look for your journal.


Circles are a good and easy design choice for your minimalist bullet journal. There are so many ways to use them—you can draw circles for your habit tracker and fill them in with colour. You can use a stencil or draw them freehand.


Boxes are another simple but stylish way to add structure and order to your journal. They're especially helpful when you have a lot going on at once and need an easy way to separate everything into categories. You can create a new box for each month, or you can use it as dividers between different sections of your journal.


Stickers are a great way to make your bullet journal more visually appealing. They're easy to stick on, and they come in so many different colours and patterns that you can use them to decorate just about every page of your journal. Plus, they're fun!

Washi Tapes

Washi tapes are simple and effective ways to decorate your Bullet Journal without cluttering it up. There are so many different kinds of washi tapes out there that you can find one that matches your style perfectly! Choose from glittery tape, metallic tape, scented tape, or just plain old black and white—the options are endless!

Sticky Notes

Sticky notes are great for adding a pop of colour or drawing attention to something important in your bullet journal. You can use them as dividers or even just as a quick doodle when inspiration strikes!

Use symbols instead of words

Instead of writing out "to do" in your bullet journal, try drawing a little picture of what you need to do. Or use a symbol for the task that you'll recognize when you see it. This way, you can keep your journal as clean as possible without worrying about getting confused by all those words!

Use Highlighters or Brush Pens

Highlighters are an easy way to add colour and personality to your minimalist bullet journal. It is also great for marking important sections of your journal and making them stand out from the rest of the page.

Decorating your minimalist bullet journal is about embracing the small pleasures in life and being present for every moment. There's no need to rush the decorating process--doing so will take the fun out of it. Rather, make each decision deliberately, whether it's a matter of what stencils to use or what colours to pair next to one another. As you progress week after week, even month after month, you'll find that you've created a bullet journal that's uniquely yours—and that's worth more than gold.
