Lucy Hale’s BFF Gave Her the Best DIY Christmas Gift Ever

We’ve been obsessing over Michelle Williams and Busy Philipps hand-painted leather Veda BFF jackets since they took them out for a stroll back in September, followed by Sarah Michelle Gellar and Food Stirs co-creator Gait Laibow, who wore them at the airport. But at $1,320 apiece, they weren’t exactly budget-friendly. Enter Lucy Hale and bestie Annie Leonard, who showed off an affordable, DIY version that’s every bit as cool as the original.


Rather than shelling out for the look, TV producer Leonard took what looks like some simple white paint to a pair of denim jackets to recreate the adorable broken-heart design. “BB girl made us jackets,” the Life Sentence star wrote on her Instagram page, adding “Blue jean babies.”

While there were some subtle differences in Leonard’s version — she split the words up slightly differently, for instance — the overall effect was the same, letting the world know these two always have the other’s back (literally).

Not only are these jackets the cutest, they can also be done on the cheap: All you’ll need are two matching jackets (any fabric will do), a touch of creativity, and a little bit of fabric paint or spray paint of your choosing.

Voila! You’ll instantly be the most fabulous pair of pals around!

Do you want to make one of these BFF jackets for your best friend? Tell us over @BritandCo.

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
