My daughter discovered a great tutorial on this blog on how to stylise your push-pins for your corkboard using fabric covered button kits from your local haberdashery. We made sixteen of them (8 for me and 8 for my daughter) in a very short time. I got my button kits from Dunelm and chose to use the 23mm metal ones as that matched my pushpins in size. I also bought the gadget to help wrap the fabric around and secure the backing. Here is another blog showing really cute push-pins made by another lady. It's really good fun.
