Giving your colleague's office or cubicle a makeover is a nifty practical joke.

Step 1: Pick a time
Pick a time when you’ll have uninterrupted access to your colleague’s workspace.

Step 2: Take picture
Take 'before' pictures of the workspace.

Step 3: Cover the walls
Cover the walls and any windows with aluminum foil. Paper the ceiling, too, if you can.

Don’t buy the cheap dollar-store foil -- this is a job for the heavy-duty stuff.

Step 4: Wrap everything
Wrap everything in sight -- from the desk, chair, and computer right down to the last pen.

Step 5: Refer to photos
When everything is wrapped, refer to your photos so you can put all the stuff back exactly where it was.

Don’t want to spend money on foil? Swipe a stack of sticky notes from the supply closet and cover every last surface with them.

Step 6: Laugh
Laugh your ass off as your coworker spends his morning unwrapping your special gift.

Did You Know?
In 2003, an airline employee sued Southwest Airlines for having her 'arrested' as an office prank.
