21 Amazing Succulent & Cactus Doodles To Try In Your Bullet Journal

I know I’m not the only one who loves doodling in my bullet journal! However, my doodle skills aren’t that great (I’m working on it!) so I, like most, go online to find tutorials and inspiration.

My current obsession are cactus and succulents! I have them all over my house and now all over the pages of my bullet journal.

Here are some cactus doodles to get you inspired!

TOOLS

Before we dive right in, I want to mention the tools I have found and use for Bullet Journaling. If you’re just starting out on your BuJo journey, these are the tools I wish I had purchased at the beginning instead of overpriced books and markers that ‘professional bullet journal-ers’ recommended me.

  1. I use this journal, which is a dupe to the cult-favorite Leuchtturm1917. The only difference is the pages aren’t numbered. No biggie.
  2. This is the black pen I use for writing in my dailies and such.
  3. I get these colorful markers for decorating.
  4. Metal Stencils to help me decorate and design my journal. They come with a little carry case and ruler.

That’s it. And to be completely transparent, I only use the markers and stencils a couple of times a month, when I set up new pages, or am bored and want to decorate. The bread and butter of a bullet journal is simply a pen and a notebook you carry with you regularly. Don’t get too crazy in the beginning as you figure out what pages do and don’t work for you.

We fixate so much on the actual cactus, that sometimes we forget just how many customization options there are for the base!

The base of the cactus can be as (if nor more) creative than the actual plant!
