Halloween gets bigger and bigger every year at Coupons.com with costume contests, cube decorating and pumpkin carving contests. How about your office? Do you show your spooky spirit, or is it just another day at work? Don’t let the kids have all the fun this year. We compiled our favorite ideas for Halloween office decorations that bring costumes, pumpkins and things that go bump in the night into your workplace.

Go All Out with the Halloween Office Decorations

If Halloween is a bigger deal than an extra day off at your office, have some fun with a theme that extends from your cube to your costume. Get your co-workers involved, too. Three of you can dress as Rock, Paper, and Scissors and host tournaments at your desks all day.

With a little bit of artistic ability you can go the solo route and paint your face like your favorite piece of art. We love this Lichtenstein-inspired look and the detail of Van Gogh (source: Reddit) Be sure to take advantage of the color printer to paper your cube walls in other works. This is also a great idea for a last-minute costume.

Keep it traditional with lots of spider webs, skulls and Grim Reapers. Walmart has a fully stocked Halloween section, and you can pick up a few extra witch hats for anyone who didn’t plan a costume.

Blood and gore might not be appropriate for every office, but you can still embrace a harvest theme by turning a pumpkin into a vase for fall blooms and make sure to keep a jar of candy corn stocked at your desk.

Grab a roll of masking tape and create your own crime scene on the floor. With a few fake blood splatters on your desk (test it first to make sure it washes out!), you’ll have co-workers checking in on you all day long.

We still love Jim from the Office’s 3-hole punch costume. Take it one step further and ask your office buddy to be your nemesis for the day by dressing up a Dwight.
