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 pot
  • 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 the paint being used is lighter than the color of your pot, apply a coat of primer on the entire surface and allow it to dry completely. Once the primer has dried, attach painter’s tape to the exterior of the flower pot, leaving a space at the top large enough to write PANTONE and the color code. Paint on the section below the painter’s tape, let dry completely, then repeat with additional coats of paint, if needed. Remove painter’s tape. Using a black 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 a piece of black ribbon along the exterior of the flower pot under the color code.


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.
