How about 365 projects - one for each day of the year?
365 projects are gaining more and more steam every year. From food photos, to vector characters, to - yes - crafts! 365-crafts.com is a handy little website to get you crafting an item each day of the year (you wouldn't need to by any birthday/christmas presents!) There are all kinds of neat items like the soda coin purse, decoupage stool, and even a candy belt (although, I would recommend letting someone else eat all that candy).
365-crafts.com is a great jumping point to get your DIY spirit inspired. Not only are the craft projects available here quick and simple, a lot of them use materials you already have lying around your house for recycling!
