Start with a rock, an empty medicine bottle, and some epoxy glue.

Epoxy glue holds up the best in weather, even in extreme temperatures. Once the glue is cured, drop in your key, then find the perfect spot to hide it!

Epoxy glue is best, as it won't be affected by extreme temperatures. Once it's dried, drop in your key, then find the perfect spot outside!

You can could be creative and use other items as a disguise, like a pine cone.

You can also use other items as a disguise, like a pinecone. However, keep the position of the lid in mind, as you'll have to unscrew it.

Can you spot the key?
