Parurino by Nadya Peek

Has a serial port, not USB, so is a bit antiquated. http://infosyncratic.nl/projects/parurino/

Barebone

You can use an existing Arduino to burn a bootloader and to program the arduino:

With USB

YES: USB is the way to go for modern devices as of 2019

DIY Arduino Mega

  1. Requires surface mount, but is empowering when done correctly. This one didn't work because you can't program it? - https://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-Arduino-Mega-2560/
  2. Another - can do it - essentially breakout of the microprocessor chip. Is it programmed with the simple plug? [2]

Arduino can be used a very popular open hardware component and can be successfully used in lots of open source projects:

Although you can always make your own arduino using a breadboard using the following instructions: http://itp.nyu.edu/physcomp/Tutorials/ArduinoBreadboard

A similar project could be making you own arduino using a perfboard. http://hackduino.org/mapblog/?page_id=46

Another take would be to create YOUR OWN Arduino PCB using following instructions on this project http://www.theparsley.com/arduino/diy/

In terms of cost most DIY guides featured here will cost you more money (in you add up the labor cost) than a prefabricated arduino board. But for larger quantities the guides could be cost effective. Although using a perfboard or ever a breadboard for could be useful for prototyping using a PCB (DIY of prefabricated) could be more a more practical solution for finished products.
