'Tis the season to start making a list and checking it — twice, perhaps. But don't just limit the festive cheer to your home. Bring the holly-jolly joy to the workplace with these fun, frugal, and fairly easy decoration ideas.
Hint: it's also a great team-building activity. Spend the afternoon with the team decorating the workplace, and take their spirit from ho-ho-glum to merry and bright.
01. Peace, joy, and pizza
Who needs Santa's Little Helpers when you've got leftover pizza boxes. Simply wrap them with colorful paper for the easiest holiday decor ever.
02. Joy to the Post-it Note
When you think about making spirits bright, what better way than with Post-it Notes. Every workplace is bound to have sticky notes laying around somewhere. And who's to say that a tree has to be green? Try using different colors for different teams.
03. The most wonderful time for Popsicles
Instead of just dreaming of a white Christmas, dream of a frosty Popsicle. Actually, you can just buy packs of these sticks to avoid the endless brain freezes, then have each employee create their own personalized ornament.
04. Happy Holly-days
Deck the hallways with some boughs of holly — all it takes is some scissor skills and balloons.
05. Frosty, the window
Hang some snowflakes in the window for a frosty landscape, whether it's a sunny summer or a winter wonderland wherever you are. Even add some glitter for an extra-fancy flair.
06. In festively fine print
Not into DIY? Well, that's what printers are for. Greet the season and your employees by hanging these cheery prints around the workplace.
07. Candy cubicle lane
Go big or go home, right? Take a few clues from this person who turned their entire cubicle into a candy village. No pressure.
