we did something similar to a boss I had (we all liked him, it was just a fun, don't go on vacation prank). I took a screenshot of his desktop, turned it upside down, made it his wallpaper and put all his real folders and app aliases in a folder pushed just off screen. we then put everything we could in his cubicle upside down. he thought it was funny.

Ive done this long, long, LONG ago to one of my (ex) friends. And Angilion, I did a variation of your idea. You can simply right-click the background, go to View, and select to hide all desktop icons. No fiddling with the icons or an extra folder
