Tis’ the season to be spooky, and spooky we should be. Year in and out, Halloween manages to spring one on us from nowhere. It is possible to be so engrossed in work and family that we don’t see the ghost of Halloween past (or present) behind us until it is literally the last minute. One minute, you are reviewing the third quarter and getting ready for the fourth, the next minute, you are planning the much anticipated (and highly competitive) Halloween cubicle decorating contest with your colleagues.
Considering that most of your colleagues have probably been planning for this Halloween since...well, the last one, you might be a tad late, but there’s no need to fret. Several DIY Halloween decorations for office spaces are simple to make and still give off the scary vibes you are looking out for. These last-minute Halloween office decorations are just as fun and effective as any other. What’s more exciting is that you can take these ideas to your home and spread the spirit of Halloween as you go.
You can summon dreadful ghouls to haunt your office with just a few supplies and a lot of glue. From easy Halloween costumes to even easier office decorations, ghouls are your go-to for last-minute office decorations. For this, you will only need different sizes of white tissue paper bells, black construction paper, glue, and cheesecloth. You can get these supplies around the office.
First, cut the construction paper into small eyes and big mouths, and then use glue to stick the eyes and mouth on the tissue paper bells. Cover this with cheesecloth, and viola; the ghouls are coming to town! Use different sizes of tissue bells for variety.
Give your colleagues a fright with this easy-to-make wreath. You only need to get a simple grapevine wreath, some black spray paint, and cardboard paper. Here’s how to prepare it;
Cut the cardboard paper into crows, spray the wreath with black paint and then attach the crows all around the wreath. You can hang this over your cubicle with a patterned ribbon. Now stand some feet away and look back in pride at your scary handiwork.
Don’t forget the Halloween office door decorations. Thankfully, there is just the right decoration to make sure your colleagues think twice before they step through your doors. To create this gateway into your lair, you will need orange tissue paper, masking tape, black construction paper, and trusty scissors.
Wrap your door with orange tissue paper. Cut out some scary triangular eyes, nose, and jagged teeth, then stick them on the orange tissue background. In less than an hour, you’ve created a masterpiece.
This is probably the easiest DIY craft you can do in the one place nobody wants to be caught scared in - the toilet. And it doesn’t require any bloodshed at all. You just need red lipstick.
Head down to the stalls and scrawl the scariest message you can think of in the mirror. You don’t need to worry about making your writing neat because with this idea, the worse your writing is, the better. You can address it to a particular colleague to make it more personal and include handprints for added spookiness.
Now, this idea on Popsugar might be the last-minute Halloween office decoration that’ll scare the wits out of your entire team. Get a printed picture of your head (or a colleague's) on an all-white background. Print this on glossy photo paper in a size that fits any jar of choice. Put the photo in the jar, then fill the jar with water and add a few drops of green food coloring. You could also add some bits of twine or craft moss to make it even creepier. Set the jar on your desk and watch your colleagues freak out.
This will cost you a little more money but is bound to be an easy and fun way to contribute to the Halloween spirit in your office.
Get a chocolate cake from the store, transfer some white frosting to a piping bag fitted with a small tip, then gradually pipe the frosting all over the cake in a pattern that resembles spiderwebs. You can also add plastic spiders on top to produce a profound effect. This would probably be the most popular idea we've got because who doesn't like a Halloween office decoration that they can eat?
Have you chosen your pick yet? Well, why not? These fun setups are easy to make and will ramp up your Halloween cubicle decorations this year.
