I know some people prefer the mouse, but as an alternative for completeness sake... Of if you prefer SHIFT-COMMAND-N in any window (including right on the desktop) will create a new folder right there.
It's not exact answer for your question, but there is small app in Mac App Store called Go2Shell which adds button to Finder which opens Terminal with path of current folder opened.
When you right click on the desktop or a Finder window the first menu item should be "New Folder", just select that.
