Tired of letting birthdays and holidays slip past you? The Birthday Holiday Wheel will make sure you never forget a card or #NationalDonutDay again!
Hi, Page Flutter friends, it’s elephant erin! Have you ever forgotten someone’s birthday or forgotten to take off work for an upcoming holiday? Because I have done that multiple times, and enough is enough! Today, I have a great journal spread that you HAVE to try for yourself to stop the forgetfulness.
The Birthday Holiday Wheel to Finally Wrangle Important Dates
Grab your supplies because it’s time to get started, here’s what you’ll need:
- A helix circle maker: I got mine at hobby lobby but they’re sold in most craft/art stores and also on Amazon. You could also grab two smaller sized bowls to trace.
- A fine tipped black marker or pen: Grab your go-t0 journaling pen. I’m using a Micron 0.3 and a precision pen (0.8).
- Colored Pencils or Zebra Mildliners: Really, anything to add some color.
- A list of all important holidays and birthdays: Go through your country’s national holiday as well as Facebook for important birthdays and write them all down.

Step 1: Draw two circles, one being slightly smaller than the other.
Step 2: Divide the space between the circles into 12 sections, one per month of the year. I used the helix circle maker and divided the circle in 30 degree sections.
Step 3: Color in the sections with different colors: We all associate colors with different months so use all your favorites.
Step 4: Write in the months any way you would like.
Step 5: Draw a matching color line coming out of each month and write in all the important holidays and birthdays.

Never forget a birthday or holiday again with these 5 easy steps! Don’t get discouraged if making the wheel doesn’t go perfectly on the first try- I made two before I finally got the hang of it. Besides a perfect Bullet Journal has less personality than one with a few (for me it’s many) mistakes!
That’s it! Pretty easy, right? Now that you’ve got your Birthday Holiday Wheel, you’re ready to dominate birthday cards and vacation days!
