Help me start making music!

I don't know where to start engaging with the process of actually making music. I know a little bit of music theory and can read music. I think I'd really enjoy exploring the structure of music by actually playing around and making music. I'm totally lost about where to start though and I'd be grateful for ideas or resource suggestions—books, websites, etc. Maybe a book that teaches music theory through composition?

I've been singing for many years—basically, folk music from around the world. I play basic guitar but don't enjoy it very much. I started learning the piano and violin just a few months ago—I'm loving both, but obviously I don't have enough skill to use them as tools.
Fire away if you have suggestions.
