Pom poms

I want to add pom poms to my scarf I pull the yarn tight when closing off the pom pom, but the strands of yarn still can be pulled out. Is there a trick to secure the yarn better? What about thread or some kind of glue? I am thinking about a small bead of hot glue. I made my own pom pom maker of cardboard.

That’s the nature of pom-poms as far as I know. You might like to use a different wool that is thicker and stronger and can be pulled super-tight to hold the strands more securely, and wind it around the centre of the pom-pom 3 or 4 times before pulling it really tight. I don’t know that glue would work given the shape of the middle of a pom-pom?

Ill give that a try

Thanks, Paul
