Gone are the days when you'd only head to craft stores if you needed yarn to knit a blanket or paper for scrapbooking. Now, retailers including Michaels sell everything from seasonal home decor to party supplies, in addition to all the fun hobby items. And according to shopping influencer Brooke (@brookieeeeee5), the store is fully stocked for the warm months ahead. "Michaels put their summer collection out, and there are so many cute finds," she shared in a recent TikTok video. Here are the 15 items Brooke and other Michaels shoppers say to grab this summer.

Serve your lemon bars or key lime pie on these sweet $17 cakestands that Brooke spotted at her Michaels location. They're available in complimentary stripe patterns, as well.

Or, simply use them as "table risers," as Michaels calls them. "Place it on your countertop or coffee table to display a candle or small plant," they say in the product description.

Outdoor rugs

If you head to the seasonal aisles in your local Michaels, you'll notice that almost everything is available in two colorways: pink/orange and blue/green.

The same is true for these outdoor rugs that shopper Jaycie Kathleen (@jayciekathleen3) shared in a TikTok video. They also come in a more neutral black/white pattern.

The rugs are four-feet-by-six-feet and are regularly $4o; however, savvy shoppers say you can almost always count on some type of sale at Michaels.

"This is a beautiful planter," posted plant influencer Juni (@juni.plants) of Michaels' "lady with fruit hat" planter. He said the $50 planter would look especially gorgeous with a snake plant.

All the shoppers we followed pointed out these miniature Adirondack chairs. Though they'd be perfectly cute sitting on a shelf as-is, Juni likes them as a little plant stand.

Pick them up in orange, pink, blue, or white for $17 each.

Kathleen also shared the selection of outdoor string lights at her store, which included disco balls, popsicles, flip flops, watermelon slices, and martini glasses.

Round tumblers

These shimmery round tumblers would be very fun for cocktails at a backyard party in place of basic Solo cups. "Can't tell if they're more golf ball-esque or disco ball-esque, but either way, they're cute," said Brooke.

For the record, Michaels calls them 20-ounce "Faceted Disco Ball Tumblers." They come in blue/green and pink/orange and are regularly $6.99 each.

Giant Solo cups

Yes, we just recommended ditching those boring Solo cups, but these jumbo, colorful versions "are meant to be ice buckets," explained Brooke. "But I think they would work really nicely as planters, too."

They're regularly $10 but were 50 percent off at the time of writing.

"Popsicles are definitely the running theme here, and I'm okay with that," said Brooke while holding up this tabletop neon light.

When not on sale, the 11.5" LED light is $20; there's also a pink margarita glass version and a flamingo one.

Popsicle lawn stakes

Yes, Michaels has the more traditional lawn flamingos, but they also have these popsicle lawn stakes that continue with the theme.

The three-foot metal stakes are a little pricey at $50 each, but we saw them for half-off at the time of writing. Choose from the yellow/orange version or the rainbow popsicle with a bite taken out.

Cactus candles

Apart from their pool party-style summer items, Michaels also has a new Western-themed collection, and Brooke said she was "particularly drawn to these candles" shaped like cacti.

There are large pillar versions (regularly $15) or smaller potted ones (regularly $13).
