Free dingbats fonts to create kawaii stickers for your planner

(This post contains affiliate links. For more information, see my disclosures here.)

Luckily, you can find a lot of freebies for your planner online, but sometimes it’s just easier and funnier to create what you need yourself so that it really suits your needs.

Dingbats fonts are a great way to do that: you can find a lot of free ones, and their main advantage is that they are very easy to customize and can be turned into great stickers.

In case you don’t know them yet, “dinbgats” are simply sets of fonts showing pictures instead of letters. This means that you can download, install and use them just like regular fonts. Each letter on your keyboard is associated with a different picture, you’ll just need to figure out which picture goes with which letter. Nothing too complicated!

Best free dingbats fonts to create kawaii stickers for your planner

Here’s a little selection of FREE dingbats fonts that could work specifically well to decorate planners. I explain you how to use and alter dingbats at the end of the article 😉

There’s many different types of dingbats available but for this selection I focused mainly on kawaii fonts. They’re all from the same creator and all of them would therefore work really well together in your planner:

How to use and alter dingbats fonts for your planner

Here’s an illustration of the different ways you can use and alter dingbats:

  • keep it simple: black font, blank inside – you can use as is or color it afterwards once you sticked them in your planner if you want
  • easy change: select the letters and pick the font color you want the outline of the drawing to be in.
  • total relooking: use an image editing software (such as Adobe Photoshop, Gimp…) to color the inside parts of your dingbats by using the paint bucket tool.

With this 3 options, you can easily create free customized stickers with different colors depending on their theme, season, etc.

The last option is a little more technical so I prepared a little step by step tutorial for you. Make sure to follow it if you want to give it a try!

Practice your doodling skills

Besides using dingbats fonts to create stickers, you can also use them to practice your doodling skills. The selection given here includes cute dingbats with pretty simple traits that you should be able to draw yourself quickly with a bit of practice.

Of course, I’m not saying that one set of dingbat will fulfill all your planner needs, but I’m sure that by looking into different dingbats sets you’ll find ideas on stickers to use here and there.

I’d like to thank the artist Maelle K for creating all these adorable fonts and making them available for free (personal use) on Dafont.

Let me know if you use any of these for your planner! I’d love to see it! Feel free to tag me/follow me on instagram (@lovelyplannerblog) or use the hashtag #lovelyplanner 🙂
