The Ball Pit Cubicle

This idea might be a bit pricey, since you’ll have to shell out some cash to buy a TON of balls, but how much fun would your cubicle be?

Crime Scene Cubicle

Got glass frames on your cubicle walls? Just smear fake blood on them and buy a roll of caution tape. Add a white tape outline inside your cube and you’re good to go!

Soccer Field Cubicle

Soccer fan? You’ll love this setup! Just buy a toy soccer set and craft a soccer field out of construction paper and white out. Setup your players and decorate the rest of the space with your favorite team’s colors and memorabilia.

Classic Haunted House Cubicle

This requires some artistic talent, but basically you create a haunted house our of cardboard, with a cutout big enough for your computer screen. Then craft some other scary items, like a full moon with a witch, some ghosts, and pumpkins (or buy those) and you’re good to go!

In-N-Out Burger Cubicle

This one requires less artistic talent, and more time. Wrap your cubicle walls with white (with a strip of orange) wrapping paper. Then wrap (or paint) some cardboard pieces with more orange for the “roof” and build yourself an In-N-Out Burger sign and menu. Cheap supplies, but you better be prepared to give away some burgers and fries! (At least have toy ones in your overhead storage!)

Dungeon Cubicle

This one requires a lot of time, artistic talent, and creativity. You can fashion your dungeon however you wish, but definitely include a “metal” door with a big latch and bars on the window.

Big Top Circus Cubicle

This idea is also pretty low-cost, and not too much of a time investment either. Just get an empty wrapping paper tube, various bright colored crepe paper and create your “big top” tent. Next, outfit your cubicle with some circus animal cutouts or stuffed animals and make sure to wear a black tophat and a red jacket!

Beach Getaway Cubicle

Don’t put your summer gear away just yet! Bring in your lounge chair and beach towels, and decorate your cubicle with palm trees, leis, seashells, and sunscreen. Remember to play ocean wave sounds all day, and wear your favorite Hawaiian shirt – or grass skirt for bonus points!

Ocean Cubicles

Sit in a 4-pod cubicle setup? Team up with your cube-mates for a great Halloween theme! Cover all surfaces in blue saran wrap, fabric, or wrapping paper and start adding fish and sea creature knick knacks as you can find. Remember to set your screen savers to Bubbles!

Super Spider Cubicles

Do you work at a benching solution in your cubicle station? Hopefully it’s an 8-pod! Create a giant spider on all your cubicle walls with some cardboard and foam noodles (spray painted black). Then just create the scary eyes and fangs and you’re ready to frighten all passersby!

Coffin Reception Table

If you have a glass coffee table in your reception area – take advantage! Create an open coffin look with a skeleton and some spider webs!
