    Scary good tips to celebrate Halloween at the office






    Halloween decorations

    For those who love to decorate, this holiday can be rewarding. Hit Pinterest, and spend the weekend decorating because oh happy day—this year Halloween is on a Monday. You can make flower arrangements, dioramas, and all kinds of fun office décor.

    Cover your frame boards with spider webs, put bugs in office corners, and put gravestones on the lawn. Hide talking monsters in the bathroom. Create eye charts with the words “Boo” and “Trick or treat” and “Happy Halloween,” eye balls, and pictures of black cats.

    Lights similar to Christmas lights can be found at craft and hardware stores to illuminate your lanes with pumpkins, bats, ghosts, and leaves. Consider orange and purple strings to flights, too.

    Pumpkins can be fun as well as an exercise in alignment.

    For those who do not frequent Pintrest, craft stores carry pumpkins of plastic that you can paint, cut, and store away for next year in your attic. All the fun of pumpkins without slimy forearms and mold.

    Cut out eyes and add eyeballs to create exotropic, esotropic, and hypertropic pumpkins. Get creative and make a pumpkin with cataracts or an eye patch. Small tea lights from the dollar store work great for illuminating your pumpkin creation.
