PowerPoint  free with Microsoft Office includes lots and lots  you can work with, I simply save it as a png or jpeg.
You are only really limited by your own experience with Power Point and your imagination.
there is so much available online if you do a search on Power point, here's a couple of ideas
This one I did recently here at EE

Making icons and buttons in POWERPOINT
Use the Drawing Toolbar to Edit Shapes, ClipArt and Photos

Add the free Paint dot net to your tools and use it to enhance your icons and or logos
It includes lots of plugins effects and filters to enhance your images.
You can even create your own using the inbuilt tools.

I personally don't like Gimp as I find it just too confusing to use.
There is another tool I have with my professional tools is Inkscape, it is a bit complex

Or if you prefer Icon Editor it was pretty expensive but an absolutely easy to use
Real World Paint is free

There you go lots to think about, which avenue you love to explore more or less.

I don't have one, I can't draw well enough!

If you can draw with a mouse, you can also use a graphics app such as GIMP.
