White House gets a spooky Halloween makeover

The White House has had a haunted makeover ahead of its Halloween celebrations.

Giant spiders and massive cobwebs have taken over the exterior of Donald Trump’s home to transform it into a spooky haunted mansion.

The web of decorations were put up on Friday ahead of the First Lady’s Halloween event for trick-or-treaters.

Melania is hosting Halloween on the South Lawn on Monday with schoolchildren from 20 schools from Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia.

Military families and community organizations are also set to take part in the event.

‘Trick-or-treaters will enjoy seeing the South Portico decorated in spider webs, creating a festive look and feel,’ a statement from the First Lady’s office said.

‘There will also be bats and orange pumpkins with profiles of past presidents. Fog will fill the air, and the trees and south facade will be lit with different colors throughout the night.

‘The president and first lady will hand out cookies created by the White House Pastry Kitchen, as well as Presidential M&M’s and other candies.’

Mrs Trump tweeted an eerie photo looking out of the White House with all of the cobwebs.

‘The People’s House @WhiteHouse is ready to celebrate #Halloween2017,’ she wrote alongside the photo.
