Halloween is coming up quick and if your office leans on the festive side this time of year, chances are you need to come up with a clever cubicle decorating idea – and soon! Not to fear – Thrifty is here to help! We’ve gathered up some of our favorite photos from across the web of over-the-top cubicle decorations for Halloween. From spooky to under the sea – there are a ton of great ideas for your cubicle this year! Remember to use the tools at your disposal too – like your computer speakers blasting complimentary music, your screen or screensaver showcasing related photos, and of course, you can tie in your costume (if you’re wearing one) to your cubicle theme!
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!)
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!
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!
Hungry Hungry Trash Can
Some simple construction paper can turn a mild mannered trash can into a ravenous, insatiable beast!
