'Make Meaning' of Halloween

Make Meaning is geared up to make Halloween and fall decorations for the home.

Halloween is almost here and there's nothing like making spooky decorations to help set the mood. But not everyone knows how.

If you're trying to find a simpler way to make crafts, then you may want to go hop on over to Make Meaning.

Make Meaning recently opened in Legacy Place over the summer, offers local residents the opportunity to find candles, centerpieces, cakes, and more. But it also gives the chance for folks to express their creative talents.

For those looking to make a ceramic piece, it's important to know that there is a kiln within the facility, which allows customers to make a Halloween bowl that can be used for food, and is dishwasher safe. It just takes four days for the piece to harden before it can be taken home.

Steve Hurley, the manager at Make Meaning, said that pumpkins are surprisingly not the top pick for Halloween this year.

"Owls are the most popular for the season," he said. "It could be because you're able to be a lot more creative with an owl, versus a pumpkin, which tends to be just orange."

And if you're looking for an activity for the kids, the store also offers a way to make your own Halloween soaps and candles.

"Those two pieces can be done with anyone, with any age," Hurley said.

Dedham Patch even tried to create a candle to see how easy it was (to see the process, check out the photos attached to this article). One perk is that you're able to choose your own scent.

But like all things, it does come with a price. Make Meaning does require a membership. It's annual membership fee is $36 for an individual and $149 for a family (up to five people). But then the sitting fees are waived and you only pay for the materials.

Good concept but I'll never go back. They are extremely expensive and the staff was quite rude.
