May is just around the corner, and it’s about time everyone is creating their May bullet journal spreads. Coming up with a theme or hello page can sometimes be the most challenging part of creating a new set up. I’ve compiled 18 hello May layouts to help spark your inspiration!
Lavender Plants by @hey.makes
This hello page is so simple, yet it is beautiful at the same time. Further, I love the whimsical feel of the lavender plants. Additionally, the lettering is phenomenal.
Daisies and Butterflies by @happybujolife
You really cannot go wrong using daisies and other flowers this time of the year. Spring has sprung, and flowers are in full bloom (most places anyway). Not only does this layout includes daisies, but there are also butterflies! I love the way @happybujolife drew “hello” as a flight path of the smaller butterfly.
Maria Victoria’s Simple Floral Hello May Layout
I love the simplicity of this layout. I created this layout for Maria Victoria. I chose the spring theme for May, and it turned out beautifully. Additionally, the pastel colors compliment the tulips.
May sunflowers by @_bullet_journal_7
I know, I know, more flowers!? I swear I did not do this on purpose, the floral layouts are just on point for May! Further, sunflowers are a great theme idea for a hello May layout. I love the way that this layout appears to be a bouquet of sunflowers. Additionally, the grey box behind the flowers is a nice touch.
May Mountains by @sfstudies
I am a huge fan of circles used as windows into different worlds. This circle is a window into a beautiful mountainous region. Additionally, the little shapes in the corners and the lettering are beautiful additions!
A Cup Of Coffee by @carlinabujo
Who doesn’t love coffee!? You really cannot go wrong using coffee as a theme at any time of the year. This hello May page also features a little mini calendar. Finally, the coffee beans raining from the sky are such a fun addition!
Here is my hello May layout from 2018. I absolutely love how these potted houseplants turned out. For some reason, houseplants are the perfect theme for March and May! So, you can add houseplants using watercolor as I did here, or you can sketch, paint, or add stickers. It is an excellent May theme!
May 2019 by @mrsdjournals
I am not entirely sure what this is, but I love it! I love the contrast that black and white imagery has and this layout is the perfect example. So, Black and white is such a great way to open up the month of May!
May Fish by @jasmincreates
You don’t see fish being used very often in bullet journals, what’s up with that? Anyways, this hello may layout features a cool fish both in color and in black and white. Then, the effect of the box going down the center gives to the fish is such a good idea. This layout is all-around great!
Flowers and Butterflies by @sun.wave.journal
We’ve already featured a lot of floral layouts in this post. However, this layout takes a different approach than those ones. It’s different in that it is far more cartoon-like. Additionally, did you notice that some of those “flowers” are actually butterflies! I love the creativity of this hello may layout.
May the Force Be With You by @gwilsstudies
In big bold Starwars font, “May the force be with you” is splattered on this cover page. I love this play on words, especially on May 4th! Super minimal and creative layout!
Lavender and Lemons by @meganvanwormer
Lemons and Lavender are such a unique combination. I love this spring and summer combination for a May theme. Personally, I love the combination of yellow and purple. Additionally, I love the use of lemons and the use of lavender in a bullet journal theme.
Whales by @not_subtitle
This layout is not only a hello page but is also a quotes page. The use of the stars and night sky with the swimming whales is gorgeous. The quote reads “Chance to take it all back whatever it takes” I am not sure where this quote is from, but the use of lettering is very creative.
Yellow Bees by @bulletjournal.for.her
Having these cute little bees flying around their honeycombs is a super cute hello may theme. I love geometric shapes in bullet journal layouts. So, this combination of cute and geometric is candy to my eyes.
Hanging Plants by @carlacid.ink
How adorable are these hanging glass globes filled with succulents! I have a few of these hanging planters in my home, and I love them! As I’ve mentioned already, plants and greenery are the perfect themes for a Hello May spread!
Tetris by @bullet.journal.ass
Tetris is super nostalgic for me. I used to play the game with my sisters when I was a kid, and I remember being pretty decent at it. With the game’s new rise in popularity, a Tetris layout is perfect for this May! Also, it’s super easy to replicate and understand!
Watercolor Shelf by @bujokv
As you know, I love the use of watercolor. Additionally, I love the use of houseplants and greenery! This layout involves both things which I love so much. Also, it looks incredible! What do you think about the use of paint in a bullet journal?? Let me know in the comments!
