I love making pom poms but mine always seem loose. They don't fall apart or anything but its like I can't get the yarn around it tied tight enough. Any suggestions?

I prefer this one, it's got a shaggier, messier look. The Accessorize one is too neat: http://www.accessorize.com/all-accessories/pom-pom-scarf/invt/78813699/
