Hi WashiGang Crew, it's WashiGang staff member Emily here!

How to create an Autumn themed planner or journal spread

There are a few things to think about when creating an Autumn themed planner or journal spread, such as colour palette, theme, motifs, borders, stickers & washi tape and of course planning Autumn themed activities!!

1. Autumn Themed Colour Palette:
Choose a colour palette that represents Autumn. Think of warm tones such as orange, red, brown, mustard & maroon. Dark green and navy are also great colours to use for a woodland theme.

2. Pick a theme:
Picking a theme can help you to narrow down what aspect of Autumn that you'd like to focus on for your spread. There are so many great themes to choose from for Autumn, such as woodland animals, Autumn leaves, foxes, Autumn colours, cosy activities, mushrooms, camping, vintage style collage, cosy cafe, Autumn florals.

3. Pick your stationery to fit with your theme:
There are so many ways to use stationery to decorate your planners and journals. Here are a few different ways you could decorate your planner spread.

  • Create a border using stamps or washi tape. We also have cute botanical clear stamps that would be perfect for an Autumn themed spread.
  • Use box stickers to highlight important dates. Mojo JojoPlans have box sticker books in all different colour palettes, including an Autumn themed colour palette.
  • Pick stickers and washi tapes that compliment each other. For example - a bold plain colour washi tape with a patterned washi tape. Or fox stickers with orange leaves.
  • Add a few Autumn themed illustrations or stickers and place them around your spread. Using different sizes creates more interest in your spread. For example: use 1 or 2 larger feature stickers or doodles and then space out a few smaller around your spread.
  • Keep it simple! Stick to one over all theme for each spread - such as a woodland forest scene, or only autumn leaves, or only mushrooms. Sometimes doing too much can make your pages seem cluttered!

4. Plan your month:
You could pick a theme for the whole month and create a title page around the month of April (for example), with each weeks plan tying into the theme. Or you could create a different style Autumn themed spread for each week. We recommend filling your month with fun Autumn themed activities such as an Autumn themed bucket list, cosy cafe dates with friends and weekend camping trips!
