Not So Spooky Halloween Decor

We’ve been getting in the Halloween spirit around here with some not-too-spooky décor.  I didn’t go crazy with a bunch of decorations this year, but I did add a few Halloween decorations to my front porch and entryway area.
Outside of the house, I added a few Halloween touches to the front door area.
I skipped carving pumpkins this year and instead opted for a faux jack-o-lantern bought a few years ago at Walmart.  It looks cute next to my newly painted red urns (although the mums are starting to look sad).
A cutesy spider hung from an outdoor light greets guests:
And a friendly skeleton (a 25 cent garage sale find) welcomes trick-or-treaters.
I also opted for a chalk doormat again (you can read about my first one here):
Inside of the house, visitors may be spooked by a ghost hanging from the ceiling.
Our entryway has a few Halloween touches too:
Like a creepy spider waiting by the doorknob:
A Halloween ready witch hanging from a coat hook:
And a sneaky skeleton on our console table:
Last year, I went a little cobweb crazy in our dining room and previous year the entryway table got cobwebbed.  How are you decorating for Halloween this year?
