Now feeds are filling with photos from amateur photographers showing off their skills. They’ve also branched out from Hobby Lobby to Walmart and Michaels, ABCNews reported. While the challenge has morphed from #hobbylobbychallenge to #uglylocationchallenge.

But the trend is proving to be a challenge for store workers and other shoppers who are having to deal with the photographers crowding the aisles and not putting the floral props back when they’re done, Business Insider reported.
hobby lobby challenge is just super annoying for employees because you’re just in our way. and if you’re gonna resituate the flowers, at LEAST put them back?

Juuuust a psa: if you do the #hobbylobbychallenge put anything you mess up back where you got it so the employees don't have to do it at the end of the day. Thanks. 👍🏼
