Decorating your cubicle for the holidays can really liven up your workspace (and your mood). For extra fun, make it a yearly tradition to have a competition between departments or employees for the best-dressed holiday cubicle. Need some inspiration? Read on.
Let There Be Lights!
Sometimes all it takes is a strand (or, many strands) of lights to get in the holiday spirit. Your boss may not love the electric bill, but your coworkers will sure love the display.
Your Job: What a Gift!
Even the dullest job can seem more exciting when it’s all wrapped up in paper and bows. And besides, in these times, even having a job is a gift in itself.
It’s hard not to picture shelves full of toys and the smell of Mrs. Claus’ cookies when you look at this Santa’s Workshop replica. Instead of a desk and computer, think of trains, dolls and Etch-a-Sketches.
Even if the “list” you’re working from is of the accounts payable variety instead of Naughty and Nice, it’s hard not to feel a little elfin magic when you step into this cube. Maybe some of that magic will make your workload shrink, too?
There’s Snow Place Like Your Cube
This decor choice provides tons of excitement. First, all the snow, trees and wildlife figurines evoke feelings of a Winter Wonderland. Second, if you have two computer screens as in this photo, you can put “snow” on top of them to make “eyebrows.” Add the brilliant blue eyeball-esque screensavers and voila, you’ve got an instant Santa face. Brilliant!
Although the chair might not be particularly comfortable to work in, you can’t go wrong with wrapping every square inch of your cube to make it look like your favorite gift. Add a few lights and smaller wrapped presents for extra flair (and don’t forget the gift tags)!
What a fabulous idea for the office that’s all about Mother Earth. Recycled ornaments, pop-up calendars and business card garland are the stars of this tree. What do you have lying around your office that could make for stellar holiday decor? (Just watch the height of your tree. Having one that’s so tall you have to pop a ceiling panel might not be the best choice, since letting in drafts is so not green.)
Chalet We Celebrate the Holidays?
If you’ve got coworkers that love the holidays too, band together to make a little string of skiing chalets, complete with pointed roofs. Don’t forget the icicle lights and “snowy” rooftops for that instant Wow! factor.
The Village People
If there is a Christmas village somewhere, this is what it looks like. Cute little brick bungalows topped with fluffy snow and trimmed with all the holiday decor one can stomach (giant lighted candy canes, anyone?) So cute and sure to win the office holiday decorating contest.
How Sweet it Is
Take care of your decorating needs and sweet tooth all in one. By using very inexpensive supplies, you can create your own gingerbread wonderland. Just be prepared for you coworkers to stop by for a treat (or steal a candy off your trimwork!)
