Admin Favicon is a WordPress plugin that allows you to add a favicon to your administrative pages. Simple, yet needed feature.

To create your own Favicon you can use one of many online services. I personally like Genfavicon, a free service that lets you convert your own images into a favicon file. After you create your favicon, upload it to you web server and follow the directions as normal.
