Though cubicles provide multiple work spaces, most often these work zones are basic and bland. This Christmas, bring some sparkling colour and holiday cheer into that boring work space by decorating your cubicle. Not only will it brighten the office it will keep the "bah humbug" out and the spirit of the holiday season alive.

Wrap a wall with favourite wrapping paper

Choose a favourite wrapping paper and wrap the wall of your choice just as you would a large boxed gift. Add ribbon and attach a Christmas card expressing a holiday sentiment to represent a personal gift tag for co-workers to read. If a wall is too much, simply wrap those framed pictures you have hanging on the wall or sitting on the desk to make them look like small gift boxes.

Christmas lights

Run a simple string of Christmas lights around the desk or along the wall to outline the configurations of your space. Single coloured white lights will add sophistication while coloured, flashing lights add fun; especially if they can be synchronised to Christmas music. If the lights are not quite enough in the way of decoration, add a silk holly garland runner woven into the lights or hang Christmas ornaments from the light cord.

Decorate the monitor

Frame your computer screen with a "Merry Christmas" theme. Green and red, silver and blue, purple and gold are the traditional two-color Christmas combinations. Place bows in each corner with miniature ornaments. Run miniature reindeer across the top with Santa in his sleigh. Don't go too big, nothing will bring out the "bah humbug" of the season if you have to compensate for a view blocking or visually distracting decoration.

Don't forget the chair

Find a bright red or green chair slip cover that is normally used for dining room chairs and slip it over your office chair. Give it a more fitted look by accenting it with a festive wire ribbon of complimentary Christmas colour or print, tied in a bow around the back.

Understated elegance

If you want to get involved in holiday cubicle decorating but just can't get into the busyness of lights and wrapping paper, invest or make a Christmas wreath to hang in your work space. Incorporate the office logo into the wreath arrangement to add a professional touch.

Flameless candles

Create an ambient Christmas display using flameless Christmas candles and fake snow. Flame-less candles are designed to look, feel, and smell like real candles but remove the risk of dripping wax and accidental fire by containing a flickering battery operated light that looks remarkably like the real flicker of a burning candle. Arrange a grouping of various sized candles (three to five) in the centre of synthetic fake snow.
