How to Make a Bow Holder


  • string, twine, or rope – I used this Natural Cotton Twisted Rope on Amazon.
  • scissors
  • 1 wood dowel, cut to your desired length – Mine was about 18” long.


Figure out what length you want the tassels to be, then double it (plus an inch or two) and cut each strand. I cut 30 strands that were 32” long.

To tie each strand onto your dowel, fold each piece of rope in half and place the center of your rope on top of the dowel. Pull your rope over and around the dowel until the “loop” is laying flat under the rest of the string.

Pull the loose ends of your rope through the loop, then pull tight to secure.

Continue tying each strand to fill your dowel. I left enough space on each side of my dowel so I could hang scrunchies on them.

You can leave the knots as-is, or you can grab 2 strands from neighboring sets and tie them together in a knot.

Decide how low you want your bow holder to hang, then cut another piece of string and tie one end onto each side of your dowel.
