Depends on if you enjoy the process and what else you would do with the hour otherwise. If you find it fun and/or learn something by making your own, and would otherwise be doing nothing more useful and/or fun, spending the time works out better than spending the money.

Yeah, that too. Most of my projects tend to be learning experiences rather than making something that others would want.
