If you are new to electronics, a simple project you could do is a clock. Counters, time and this kind of stuff is quite basic when talking of microcontrollers. But, to get decent precision time is not that easy. That's exactly what Greek Arduino Projects
YouTube channel made. An Arduino based clock with alarm configuration. In this way, he could wake up every morning and start working on his new projects.
The design is quite simple and uses an LDC screen to show time and date and to set the alarm time. He also designed the PCB and send it to a manufacturer ang get good quality PCBs.
