Hello Planning Mashers!
Today we’re uniting two awesome things – Halloween and doodling! Yup, you guessed it – this is a post full of Halloween doodles.
There will be tutorials, there will be videos and it’s all beginner-friendly if you’re not so confident with your doodling skills yet.
Let’s dive in and doodle some spookiness!
Halloween doodles are something I had on my Fall Bucket List (just go and check it out here), so I’m happy that I can now officially mark it as completed.
In the post below I compiled an ultimate list of all the possible Halloween doodling tutorials you might need.
We’ll start with 7 simple step-by-step tutorials I created.
I’ll then share Halloween doodle tutorials and inspirations from me and other creators.
Finally, we’ll finish with a few Doodles With Me videos, which again are all beginner-friendly.
There is a little worksheet to practice some of these doodles in our Facebook group, so be sure to drop by and check it out.
Moreover, there is a sheet of printable Halloween-themed stickers in the Resources Vault! Head straight there or join Planning Mashers to get your access. The subscription form will be at the end of the post.
Let’s get doodling!

Halloween Doodles: Scull (With Horns!)
For some reason, this really reminded me of Maleficent, but it’s definitely a much easier doodle to draw.
I feel like sculls are an essential part of Halloween, but I really wanted this scull to be a bit different.
Halloween Doodles: Poison Apple
Another Disney inspiration – a poisoned apple. Of course, this time I was thinking of Snow White.
Now looking at it I realize that it might as well be a caramel apple if you just remove the eyes and maybe color the coating in a different way. Can be a perfect Fall or carnival doodle!
Halloween Doodles: Pumpkin
This is probably my favorite doodle for the holiday!
It’s very easy to doodle pumpkins, and since you can play around with expressions they will always look different.
A great thing about this is that you can play around with the shape and the expressions of the pumpkin, so you can create something very creepy or super friendly. Here are some ideas I came up with last year.
Halloween Doodles: Spider
Literally the easiest doodle for Halloween, and also super cute, I think!
In my country we think that spiders are actually messengers, so they aren’t exactly very connected to the evils of Halloween.
But hey, every time I see one crawling on my clothes I’m completely terrified. Anyone else is with me on this?
Halloween Doodles: Poison
Of course, no Halloween happens without some witchery, so a little bottle of poison is a must-have doodle.
Even though for some reason this particular bottle of poison makes me think of pirates much more than Halloween.
Halloween Doodles: Cauldron
If you want to see how this doodle looks in a Bullet Journal, just check out my doodling page in October.
Halloween Doodles: Bat
Or a vampire? You decide!
For some reason, I decided to go with this weirdly shaped one, but I find that way it looks cuter. Yup, it’s spooky Halloween season but I still want things to be cute.
Halloween Doodle Tutorials and Inspirations
These were some basic ideas I came up with, but I definitely want to share with you what others created as well.
After all, each artist has their own style, so it actually can be pretty fun to see how everyone adds their own spin on basic doodles like skulls and pumpkins.
And don’t forget to keep scrolling to watch tons of Doodle With Me videos as well! There are so many more ideas there.
Here are some Halloween doodles I used in my Bullet Journal spreads.
We’re starting with a pretty basic tutorial for the things that I usually consider the skeleton of a Halloween.
Disregarding what approach I usually use for my October theme, you’ll probably always see some of these doodles in my setups.
I like creating doodling pages like that before I sit down to do my setup, it helps me to come up with more ideas to decorate the future Bullet Journal setup.
If you check my October 2019 Bullet Journal setup you’ll see how most of these doodles make an appearance there.
Cute little doodles are perfect for different trackers, like this one for my Instagram growth.
It can also be perfect for doodly monthly trackers.
Little tutorial with your most must-have spooky October setup.
I also realized I forgot to mention Karin Brushmarkers Pro as some of my favorite supplies for Fall themed setups. The oranges are just so beautiful and bright.
Halloween is also about monsters, and doodling these is super fun.
There are no limitations – you can make them as crazy and wonky as you wish! These are just a few to get you started.
And here are some doodle tutorials from other creators:
I love how cute these are, the cartoony style like this is probably my favorite.
Plus what a fun idea to add thoughts and quote bubbles to them,
There are million different ways to draw pumpkins, but they all are different and will give different results.
Considering that for the October Bullet Journal setup you’ll probably need to draw quite a few pumpkins – I saw it’s always great to see a different tutorial.
I love tutorials like these – they always remind me how easy doodling can actually be.
In the end, it’s all about basic shapes, everyone can become a doodling master. If you’re not sure – check my Introduction Into Doodling For Beginners, where I share ALL you’ll need to know to become a pro doodler.
Even though I definitely love my brightly colored Halloween doodles, it looks especially spooky and stylish if you just use a black pen.
I could never decide on just one style, so I often do my doodles in just black and use bright orange for other elements, like headers.
Slav is a wonderful artist and I love how she makes all her doodles look super cute, even if it’s some fun spookiness of Halloween doodles.
I love how creative this tutorial is. Just proves that if you put your mind into it – you can make everything be a Halloween doodle.
I also want to especially note how amazing the font is for the header.
WIth cauldron and the magic ball, these doodles make me think of witches and nature magic.
Another reminder that there is a different take on the Halloween theme, you don’t have to make it all black and spooky.
Black and White Bullet is always very creative and I love her style. But I really think it shines especially bright for the Halloween season.
If you’re looking to do a black and white setup but still want to have some variety – definitely recommend you get this set of Tombow Dual Brush Pens.
She really managed to make these doodles both cute and spooky. What a talent.
Also really in love with the shades and generally the way she played with the color.
Loving this new take with the use of traditional for the season black and orange.
Also a bit offtopic but anyone else is obsessing with the handwriting on the left side of the page?
Simple but super cute. These Halloween doodles can be a wonderful add-on to your spooky October Bullet Journal setup.
I’m not the only one associating Halloween with magic, but unlike herbal magic from previous doodles, this one has a more spooky and sinister feel to it.
Trick or treating is an important part of the Halloween celebration and of course, if you want to add some fun candy to your October pages it will look absolutely natural.
Here is a simple tutorial from wonderful Nicole that can give you some ideas.
Absolute classics of October and I like that among very Halloween-themed doodles you can also see so many Fall leaves.
Doodle With Me: Halloween Doodles
As I promised, here are a few Doodle WIth Me videos that surely will give you even more inspiration for your spooky October Bullet Journal setup.
We’ll start from a few I have on my YouTube channel.
Yup, I have a YouTube channel where I post Plan With Me videos, Doodle With Me, stationery reviews, and unboxings. So if that’s something you’d be interested in – I’d love for you to check it out.
But let’s go back to Doodle With Me videos, Halloween edition.
My first Halloween-themed Doodle With Me video and I decided to go for just a classic black fineliner look.
I also did my best to make sure you see how I start every doodle with a set of basic shapes, this truly is the key to improving your doodling skills.
Remember, that there is a practice worksheet in our Facebook group. You can print it out and trace over the doodles before you’re ready to draw it on your own.
In this video, I went in the opposite direction and really added ALL the colors!
I’m using here my Karin Brushmarkers, which are my favorite Fall pens because of how rich and bright their pigment is.
Well, they are great for every season, but I usually prefer my colors pretty muted, unless it’s Fall.
I also found a few other videos with easy Halloween tutorials as well and I’m sure they will be of great use to you!
I love how in this tutorial she presents a lot of different ways to doodle the same thing.
This really helps when you create a Bullet Journal setup, because you’ll need to doodle a lot but there is only that much you can actually add to this theme.
Definitely recommend watching this video, plus all the doodles are very beginner-friendly.
Sarah is a wonderful artist and I love all her videos. Her doodles are always super cute and very beginner-friendly.
