Dried Star Flowers

These tiny dried star flowers are the perfect flowers for this wall art project. Their dainty little blooms along with this pretty vibrant coral color work well with the white painted wood shadow box style frame. Dried star flowers have tiny flower petals so when making a flower arrangement or flower crafts it’s best to use them in clusters.

Where to buy Dried Star Flowers

You can find dried star flowers at most craft supply stores like Michaels Stores, Hobby Lobby or Joann’s. In fact, all the supplies used to make these easy framed star flower bouquets were purchased at my local Joann’s. You can also find unique and interesting star flower colors on Etsy. Here is a mixed-color bunch from Amazon.

Step-By-Step Instructions

Easy Framed Star Flower Bouquet

Make this simple dried star flower wall hanging in just a few easy steps.
Prep Time5 minutes
Active Time25 minutes
Total Time30 minutes


  • 1 Bunch of dried Star Flowers (3 oz bunch)
  • 1 Unfinished wood frame measuring 10" x 10'
  • 1 Roll of twine
  • 1 Glue gun with hot glue
  • 1 Pair of scissors
  • 1 Floral wire (using just one piece of wire)
  • 1 White paint of your choice


  • The first step is to paint your unfinished frame. I needed two coats to cover. Start with your first coat covering both the back and front and allow 30 minutes dry time between coats. Once the frame is painted and dried it is ready for the flowers.

  • Next gather the flowers in a cluster and twist to create a fan of flowers. Adjust the height and the length of the flowers as needed.

  • Wrap the cluster with a 10" piece of floral wire to hold the cluster together.

  • With your hot glue gun, glue a 6"-10" piece of twine on the wire to cover it. Simply add glue to the wire and wrap the twine.

  • Cut the bouquet stems to fit the cluster in your frame. Add a simple bow over the glued twine then glue the flower cluster to the frame. I choose to place mine at an angle.

  • If your cluster is not fanning (spreading) enough, take your glue gun and individually add star flowers by angling them to create a wider fan.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use other flowers?

Of course! Any dainty small dried flower or mixture of flowers would work. The possibilities are endless! You can also use your own flowers, even fresh flowers. If using fresh flowers (like baby’s breath) you will need to follow a drying process consisting of hanging the flowers upside down in a dry space.

Can I use a different type of glue?

Yes, regular craft glue would work, you will just have to give it an appropriate amount of dry time.

I can’t find the unfinished wood frames, is there another option?

You can choose a regular photo frame and either remove the glass or keep it on and paint right over it. Many different frame options are available at craft stores.

Can I use a different ribbon?

The sky is the limit! Choose twine, yarn, satin ribbon or even raffia.
