There’s endless possibilities with these Pantone-inspired flower pots. Pick your favorite color and turn your flowers from cute to fabulous.


  • Paint (outdoor paint if being used outside)
  • Flower pots
  • Primer (optional)
  • Painter’s tape
  • Brush
  • Black permanent marker
  • Varnish (optional)
  • Black ribbon (optional)
  • Industrial strength adhesive (optional)


Locate the Pantone color code that corresponds to your paint by using the guide here.

If paint being used is lighter than the color of your pot, apply a coat of primer on the entire surface and let to dry completely. Once primer has dried, attach painter’s tape to exterior of flower pot, leaving space at the top large enough to write PANTONE and the color code. Paint below the painter’s tape. Let dry completely, then repeat with additional coats of paint, if necessary. Remove painter’s tape.

Using permanent marker, write PANTONE and the color code of your corresponding paint. If desired, apply a coat of varnish and let dry completely.

If desired, attach piece of black ribbon along exterior of flower pot under the color code with adhesive.


STAY SAFE: Please ensure this DIY is done in a well-ventilated area.

ORANGE & FIELD TIP: If placing your flower pot outdoors, be aware that the black ribbon may fade.
