Halloween is arguably the best holiday of the year, especially at work. At the very least, there’s usually a sharp uptick in candy and other assorted treats. And, some offices go all out, with costume contests and cubicle-decorating competitions.

If your workplace is seriously into Halloween, now’s the time to embrace the spoopyness and start planning your decorating scheme. These spooky Halloween cubicles will inspire you:

1. The Well-Executed Classic

Skeleton: check. Cobwebs: check. Caution tape: check. Basically the perfect Halloween cubicle.

2. Here Lies Scott

Poor Scott.

3. The Uncluttered, But Still Festive, Halloween Cubicle

Not everyone can be productive typing around a pile of decapitated dolls’ heads and rubber spiders. We get it. If you’re Team Clean Desk, this look might work best for you. Bonus: it looks fancy, but it’s actually pretty cheap. You can get most of this stuff at your local party store for a couple of bucks.

4. For the Person Whose Cubicle Always Looks Like a Crime Scene

On the other hand, if you’re Team Messy Desk, you might want to go all out. After all, you’re used to working around a little bit of clutter.

5. We Have Comp Time Down Here

Watch your coworkers line up to dive into Pennywise’s sewer.

6. This Oddly Welcoming Cubicle

The sad part is I think we are adding more! Haha #paychex #halloweencube @insidepaychex

The signs say, “Do not enter,” but the happy spider says, “Just kidding.”

Do You Know What You're Worth?

7. For the Coworker With the October Birthday

Make your office BFF this crepe-paper mummy, and show them you’d be friends even if you weren’t cubicle neighbors.

8. The Creepy Circus Food Stand

Creepy because circus; awesome because food.

9. A Cubicle Carnival of Horror

We really hope she left this up for at least the whole month of October. Honestly, it’s a solid choice for year-round decor. Think how much more private your cubicle would feel, if it had a roof.

10. The Haunted Computer

Let’s face it, half the time your computer feels haunted anyway. With a little construction paper and some creativity, you can turn your monitor into an official haunted workstation. It’ll feel appropriate, the next time your machine freezes … with fear.

11. This Terrifying Haunted Cubicle That Has It All

A post shared by Paul Moore Jr (@just_paul_moore) on

At first glance, we see a Rancor, a scarecrow, a lot of spider webs and a couple of skulls way in the background. There might be a hawk somewhere in there? It’s hard to tell. Anyway, it’s scary.

12. For the Office’s Biggest Harry Potter Fan

Turn your cubicle into Hogwarts with these “floating candles.”

13. The Door That Means Business

Of course, if you’re lucky enough to have a real office, you can use the holiday to remind people that your door is not, in fact, always open. It might not be a great move, leadership-wise, but you’ll get terrifying amounts of work done … at least for a few weeks.
