Holiday season is upon us and one great way to get your staff in the holiday spirit is to decorate your Phoenix office space. If you have a limited budget, don’t fret, we have tips for the most affordable way to decorate your office for the holidays. With a little creativity and work, you can transform your Phoenix commercial office into a festive space.
DIY Not Required
Before we dive into the DIY ideas, we have two inexpensive materials that create a big impact with minimal effort.
Adding Christmas lights to your office is a great way to transform your office into a holiday atmosphere. The best part though is how inexpensive this decoration is; a strand of lights only costs a few dollars. If you’re looking for a simple way to decorate, Christmas lights make a large impact.
If you’re going for the winter wonderland approach, pair the lights with this “snow” ground cover. At 10 feet long and less $5, the snow is an inexpensive way to add a large statement.
Cardboard boxes are a free way to add holiday pizazz to your Phoenix office space. Starting now, hold onto to your cardboard boxes. Ask your coworkers to bring in their boxes too, so you’ll have plenty of cardboard to work with.
Some DIY holiday décor ideas to make from cardboard:
- Make a life-size gingerbread man and woman or try your hand at these oversized ornaments that look like a gingerbread cookie.
- Save extra-large boxes to make a super-sized gingerbread house.
- Create a “fireplace.” Go the extra mile and add a battery-powered, warm-white LED light to the hearth to mimic the warmth of a fire or add a TV monitor playing a video of a hearth fire.
- With an X-ACTO knife, glue, and glitter, you can create these elegant snowflakes. We suggest pairing them with Christmas lights and the “snow” ground cover for the magical winter wonderland theme.
Paper garlands are a classic and simple way to add holiday décor. To add a personal touch, make stockings and add a name of a coworker to each. If you choose to make the cardboard fireplace, hang them from the structure.
A desk decorating contest gets your employees in a holiday spirit and barely dents the budget. Employees can bring in their own decorations and compete to win a prize. Have staff vote for the winner and offer something desirable like a massage voucher for the prize.
Here’s one way to add holiday charm that you’ve probably overlooked: screensavers. If you have access to your employees’ computers, you can surprise everyone with festive screensavers. We recommend a video of a fireplace!
If you’re in charge of decorating your Phoenix office space, doing all the items on the list would be difficult. Determine a theme and pick a few of the ideas. Or, gather a group of volunteers that would be willing to help to tackle them all.
