How to make a surface be flush to a curved surface?

I was looking to make a Captain America shield and the main problem I've run into is how to make the star be flush with the curvature of the shield. I've been using on shape for about 2 months now and I've not delved deep into many of the commands/tools and was wondering if someone could either give me a step by step tutorial on how to make the star flush or just link a video that goes over the same concept? Thanks!

I've learned that I can use the wrap tool to get something flush with the surface but I believe because I used revolve to make the shield the top is not considered a face therefore I cannot wrap the star onto the shield. Am I correct in thinking that, and if so is there any workaround?
