A bullet journal wreath is a great way to add a bit of character to your bullet journal. Wreaths are sleek and stylish and completely customizable to fit your purpose.
I like to use them on an intro page whenever I change months. This is my favorite way to a wreath because it keeps it rare enough in my bullet journal so it still feels really special when I flip to one.
But you could also use them pretty much anywhere in your journal. I’ve even seen them on dailies, surrounding the date.
Read all the way to the end to see four examples to help inspire you to add a wreath to your bullet journal!
I waited forever to add a wreath to my bullet journal, despite seeing so many beautiful ones on Pinterest and Instagram.
They all looks so perfect and intimidating, I was sure I would never be able to replicate one.
But friends, let me tell they are so easy.
How to draw a Bullet Journal Wreath:
All you need is a compass, pencil/eraser, and a pen for outlining. (The compass is really the lynchpin in this whole process. It’s how you get that nice beautiful straight circle. I got this one at the grocery store for about $3.)
Start by drawing a circle with your compass and then trace the outline. This is where you’re really setting up the shape of your wreath.
For this one I decided to do two branches framing the middle. But you could also do a top and bottom branch, a U-shape, or a complete circle.
Then draw your leaves or decoration. This was the part I was most nervous about because I didn’t think I’d be able to make the leaves even. And I was right, they’re totally not even. But, it turns out that it doesn’t matter. When the whole thing is done, you won’t be able to tell.
The last step is to erase any stray pencil marks and voila, you have a wreath.
Here are a couple more wreaths – you can really see how many different things you can do with a simple circle.
I love the bottom two. The left one feels like spring and new growth and the right one feels like winter and rebirth.
