  2. Measure and cut fabric scraps to cover one or more cube sides. Spray cork with adhesive and cover with fabric; trim excess.
  3. Paint cork on one or more sides of cube as desired; let dry completely.
  4. Refer to photo to decorate cube sides using stamps, stencils, punched paper circles, vintage images, and more. Embellish cube sides with paint pen, markers, and paint.

  6. Embellish ends of push pins with desired elements, using metal and glass glue as needed. Apply rub-on transfers and stickers as desired. Position small flowers on top of push pins, wrapping stems around pins and curling ends with toothpick.
