Last year at work the girls in the Finance/Admin department decided we should do a little work Halloween party & potluck! There was a contest for best costume, and best decorated desk. My competitive spirit was all down for this!
I'll start with my desk decorating:
I was originally made some bloody handprint window clings out of white glue but didn't like they way they turned out, so I threw them out and ended up painting my hands with red acrylic paint and smearing them on my cubicle window (SO much fun, by the way!)
(attempt at glue window clings)
I found caution tape at the dollarstore to put all over the exterior of my cube.
Because my boss is not the type to participate, I expanded my decorating onto his cubicle too. :) I picked up this Styrofoam tomb stone at the dollarstore. I had considered a chalk outline and toilet paper decorating for my boss's desk, but I didn't have time. Maybe next year!
I made a stained bloody curtain out of what I had around the house. I coffee stained a white piece of fabric, and then used my scrapbooking spray ink to add some "blood"
(Curtain drying in the bath tub!)
I found some severed fingers and random eyeballs and brains at the dollarstore. I floated some things in jars of colored water (Tip: neon food coloring made for great colors here!)
Some of them I drilled holes in and put on my Christmas lights
And then some were just placed around :)
The potluck was extremely successful! People brought what they said they would, we had a good mix of things, and it was all so tasty! Some people even got really into it!
