Fiddlehed’s got great videos on
-double stops
-rhythm variation (swing feel, etc)
-accent patterns
-bowing patterns (georgia shuffle)
-grace notes
(All on youtube)
Any of these can be added to any tune. I think you just have to develop a feel for what works well in what song through practice/experience.

Other variations I’ve encountered in his videos that should be in your toolkit are anticipating notes (coming in early) and adding additional notes from the scale. I’m sure there are more.
