4 ways to decorate your work space

Some of the supplies for these decorations are from Paperchase. Links to the specific items will be below, however, decorations are optional and can come from wherever!

1. Map Pen Pot

You will need:


First, cut the paper tissue to the right size and add glue on to the whole outside of the pen pot (including the bottom). Then fasten the paper tissue to the box as if wrapping a present.

Glue the inside of the box and fasten the tissue paper. It’s a simple and quick way to add something to your desk area!

2. Candle Jar

You will need:

  • Glass jar
  • Paper tissue
  • Ribbons
  • White paint
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Paint brush
  • Paper
  • Double sided sellotape


First, tape a paper heart (or any shape) to the glass jar and start painting it.

Wait for that to dry whilst you decorate the lid. I used blue tissue paper and glued ribbons along the side

Remove the paper from the glass jar and add a tea light (if you use real tea lights you need holes in the lid for them to stay lit). I recommend fake tea lights which you can get for 50p at Wilko.

3. Organiser box

For this you will need:


Glue all the sides on the outside of the box as done with the pen pot. Stick the paper tissue on. In order to avoid lumps roll the box on its side so the folding is mostly on the bottom. Repeat on the lid.

This is great for storing post-it notes, paperclips or just bits and bobs you don’t want to lose!

4. Hanging Pictures

You will need:

  • Photo Paper (HP everyday photo paper)
  • Scissors
  • Some thread
  • Mini pegs
  • White tack
  • And a collection of your favourite pictures

First, paste all your favourite picture into a word document. You decide the size ( I used quite small pictures). Print them out on photo paper or regular paper (best result with photo paper) and cut them out.


Use white tack (or any other method) to fasten the thread to the wall and start hanging up the pictures with the mini wooden pegs.

This is a nice way to liven up your work space and make it a bit more homely!
