Bring Some Christmas Cheer to the Office with these Cubicle Decorating Ideas!
November 26, 2012
Unless you work for a total Scrooge, there's no reason you can't bring a little holiday cheer to your work space this holiday season! If you're one of the many people will be slaving away, hoping to bring home a little extra cash to pay the bills and put something extra under the tree, why not spruce up your cubicle with festive Christmas decorations that will not only make the season merry and bright but will also bring a smile to your coworkers' faces? Even if you're forced to spend the day strapped to your computer and lost in a sea of cubicles, with the right decorations you can transform your workspace into a festive holiday wonderland that will make the days go by a little faster!
If you want to keep your cubicle decorations non-denominational so that you don't offend any of your other coworkers who might celebrate other holidays, you can still brighten up your workspace for the holidays with a Winter Wonderland theme. Transform your cubicle walls with the help of a Winter Wonderland scene setter, so that even if you live in the sunniest climate you can spend your breaks dreaming of a white Christmas! If you can't use pushpins or thumbtacks to hold up your scene setters and other holiday decorations, be sure to stock up on sticky tack decoration adhesive to hang your decorations without damaging your cubicle walls. Finish off your winter wonderland decor with pretty snowflake luminaries in the corner of your desk. Since it's probably against fire code to have real candles, just fill those luminaries with flameless candles for a festive touch that will have you ready for those snow days!
For those Christmas enthusiasts who just can't resist spreading Christmas cheer and decking the halls in everything red, green, and Christmas-themed, you can transform your cubicle into the ultimate Christmas oasis! Start out with a Christmas fireplace scene setter on the wall, and if you're feeling generous, add some stockings with your coworkers names on them! Be sure to double check with Santa to see who's on the naughty and nice list this year! Hang a holiday wreath on the outside of your cubicle, and, as long as it's not against any fire codes or office rules, add a festive glow to the festive scene you've set by hanging twinkle lights and some boughs of holly around the perimeter of your cubicle. For the finishing touch, tuck a bright and shiny Christmas tree centerpiece in the corner of your desk!
Get your coworkers in on the holiday festivities by holding a cubicle decorating contest. See who can come up with the most festive holiday decor for their cubicle and have an award for the winner. Perhaps you can ask management to get into the holiday spirit and donate a gift card to a local lunch place for the winner, but if that won't work, ask everyone to kick in a dollar or two to put into the pot for the winner. If you want to make the decorating contest a bit more challenging, limit everyone's decorating choices to office supplies. No store bought Christmas decorations allowed! See how far your coworkers can stretch those creative muscles and get the crafty juices flowing by making them decorate their cubicles for the holiday season using only the office supplies they use on a daily basis. Paper clips, staples, sticky notes, rubber bands, legal paper, envelopes, and any other office supplies are fair game when you're decorating your cubicle for Christmas! Whoever comes up with the most creative design will be crowned the winner this holiday season!
Whether you want get your coworkers involved in your holiday cubicle decorating contest or just want to spread some Christmas cheer by decking the halls in your own little corner of office space, with the right Christmas decorations and enough holiday cheer to spread to everyone, heading to work this holiday season will be a happy experience instead of just a chore to get through!
