Festive Christmas Cubicle Decorating Ideas
Work takes up a huge portion of our time, so it makes sense to have your desk and surrounding area decorated nicely, especially as Christmas approaches. Whether you are working virtually in your home office or workplace, getting your space festive is a great way to keep you motivated over the holiday season. You can use fairy lights, baubles and even mini trees to get you started. Take a look at these ideas for inspiration.
Bring the warmth of a cozy hearth and mantle to your workspace with this idea. A faux fireplace is easily made with cardboard and wrapping paper. It's a great place to hang stockings which can be filled with Secret Santa gifts, for example, or even just candy.
Deck Your Halls
Deck your halls with giant ornaments and plenty of glitter to really set the tone. These ornaments are made from card so they are flat which is a great way to save on space while still adding festive decor to your space.
Gingerbread and Christmas are almost synonymous with each other. It conjures up warm memories of baking as a child and leaving cookies out on plates for Santa. Make a fun gingerbread house scene for your office from cardboard, which can be a real point of interest. Festive paper plates can easily be turned into sweets to adorn the house with.
Save space by making a tree with lights. It's not over the top and definitely doable. You can use hooks to lay the lights out in a tree shape. In between, you can add festive words such as 'joy' or 'peace'.
A simple tree made from baubles is also another great idea for space saving. When you take it down before Christmas, you could give each bauble out to colleagues with a little gift as a festive token.
Door Christmas Tree
For easy door decor, make this tree with streamers and construction paper. Cut green paper into strips and then make them into rings. Place a shiny bow at the top and use gift bags at the bottom. This would also make great Christmas classroom door decor.
Christmas Cabin Decoration
If you really want to go all out, especially if there is a competition in your workplace, try making this Christmas cabin decoration. You'll need cardboard tubes for the 'logs'. Use cotton wool for the 'snow'. Make signs such as 'Lumberjack Lane' to add to the effect.
Gingerbread House Office
Similar to the Christmas cabin decoration, this gingerbread house office is great for a competition. You'll need brown paper to cover the walls. Red and white striped wrapping paper is used to make the curtains on the windows.
Gingerbread cubicles are easily created with brown paper and multicolored balloons. Hang the balloons from the top to look like old-fashioned Christmas lights, and then make sweets from the rest of the balloons by wrapping them in cellophane.
Give your colleagues a trip to a winter wonderland with this festive scene. The lit reindeer really brightens up this space, while the train set adds a bit of nostalgia to the mood.
Frosty the Snowman
A cheerful snowman is enough to brighten anyone's day, especially when he's in his own cardboard-constructed snow globe! Cut out snowflake decorations from white paper, or if you are an origami fan, why not make them with this technique?
A Candyland theme is always a popular choice for Christmas because of its cheerful and bright colors that are a warm welcome in the cold and dreary winter months. Make the decorations from card and a signpost with words such as 'Sugar Plum' and 'Lollipop Lane'.
Become the talk of the office for Snoopy fans with this idea. All the characters can be seen rocking around the Christmas tree, probably singing carols. The background is simply black paper, and then white circles are cut out for snow.
Go for traditional by making your walls into Christmas characters such as Rudolph, Santa and a snowman. You can use all sorts of materials, from fabric to felt and even foam.
Dr Seuss fans will love recreating this festive character from Whoville. You'll need wrapping paper which features red, white and green such as the polka dot wrapping in the image. You can make the Grinch face from cardboard and then place a Santa hat on top.
The only thing missing from this adorable Reindeer stable is Santa himself. To recreate this idea, you'll need red, brown and green paper. Use a template to cut out a number of identical reindeer from the brown paper. The number you make will depend on the amount of area you're covering.
