Make cut down pencils to add to geocaches as your swag item

I like to leave cut down pencils in caches that don’t have a writing utensil. They will also fit in many micros. I often write “Left by Lone R” on the pencil.

Plastic animal key fobs

Plastic animals are one of the more popular trinkets in geocaches. I found a fun little project that turns them into key fobs. Spray paint them gold, or any colour that tickles your fancy Рa pink elephant would be cute. Let dry. Spray paint them with a clear coat. Screw in an eye screw. Attach a key ring.

Lucky pennies

Hand-painted lucky pennies are my new thing.

Hopefully they will ward off DNFs. :)

Really interesting knot and tie technique. The knot clasp mechanism lets the wearer cinch up the bracelet without need of a clasp. Found this in a Super_Doc cache in Homer Watson Park, Cache in Hand.

Beaded geocaching zipper pull

Found this cute zipper pull in a geocache. I think I might create some of my own. I’ll use black beads instead of red, and maybe replace the heart with a smiley face, if I can find smiley face beads.
