Enterprising teens are taking to craft stores to take pictures designed to look cool on social media.

Buzzfeed was first to point out the trend, called the Hobby Lobby challenge. It involves using things like fake flowers and other flora to create artistic-looking portraits of themselves and their friends.

The impressive results are catalogued all over Twitter and Instagram.

The trend started last January, when a tweet by Kelsey Maggart, captioned "snapchat vs instagram," went viral. The picture was taken in the floral section of a Hobby Lobby but was carefully edited to make it look like she was in some kind of jungle setting.

The photos have inspired others to visit craft stores and take their own photos in the same style.

All of these photo shoots could cause frustration for store clerks.
