yep. if you've got a mic and a way to record, try hitting a wet piece of cardboard with anything for a snare sound, to mix it up , put some tin foil over that and use some drum brushes. others options are coke cans, pill bottles, and whatever. for bass drums, try micing a foot stomping on multiple objects, or even use your mouth. even with little production skills you can get these ideas working for you. and then they will be YOUR sounds! creativity is so overlooked. good luck !

I made a nice kick drum by hitting an empty cardboard acosutic guitar case with an open hand and then EQing it. It can be done..like Steeleyfan said, just get creative.
