    I don't know what program or style of map you're using, but making a really dark area would probably give you a decent pit that you can then put something over to make a partially covered pit trap. If you have any kind of rope/string/straight line drawing tool, you could also stretch a rope or string across a path to make a tripwire. I'm afraid I don't have any specific elements, but hopefully those ideas will help some

    The problem with mapping traps is that if you make a nice map icon or object then the players will see the trap. One way around that with Maptools is you can have the Trap Icon as a separate object that you place on the map after they step on it.

    Here are some objects and covers from my DundJinni File that could be used as trap effects. I did not make any of these, they were all posted on The DundJinni Forums by other artists.

    Sorry guys, I had to delete the mineshaft. On a second look, I realized that while I had made the shaft deeper than the original, the original was not mine to distribute outside of a map.
    Copyright issues and all that.

    Nor sure if these will work for you or not but it is the spikes I have in my files
