This achievement can be earned easily in the tutorial area.

After completing/skipping the tutorial, dig up 2 yellow and red roses, they are on the ground in the starting area.

Now head up the steps, enter the building on your right with the enchanting tables, and access the chest on your right, and take out the iron pickaxe. Break the iron under the brewing stands in the building next door. Either make or place down a crafting table, and breakdown the blocks into ingots.

Now create some shears. Head down the stairs opposite the building you are in, and you will see penned up animals on your right. Shear all the sheep. You will get the following achievement if you don't already have it.

Minecraft: Xbox One EditionHave a Shearful DayThe Have a Shearful Day achievement in Minecraft: Xbox One Edition worth 20 pointsUse Shears to obtain wool from a sheep.

Now open your crafting menu, no table is needed, and access the decorations tab, make rose red dye and a yellow dye with the flowers you collected.

Now create red wool and yellow wool by combining the dyes with the wool you have sheared off the sheep. Straight across from the sheep pen is a chest. Access the chest and take out all the bones, and cyan dye.

Now create some bonemeal from the bones you collected under the decorations tab.

Next, combine the cyan dye with a piece of wool to make cyan wool. Combine 2 red dyes with bonemeal to make 2 pink dyes and the yellow dye with the remaining red dye to make orange dye. Combine the dyes with the wool to make orange wool and pink wool.

You should now have the following wool colors:
Orange wool
Pink wool
Red wool
Cyan wool
Yellow Wool
White wool

Next, head back up the stairs from the farm area back into the main village and take a left into the large building with the ender chests. Continue past a sandstone archway, and hop onto the stone wall and look out. You should see a large creeper looking monument off in the distance. Head towards it.

Once you arrive at what turns out to be a boat, climb onto the boat via the ladder on the side, and then climb up the ladder on the sail and hop off onto the sail itself. Now simply collect 1 lime wool, 1 black wool and 1 grey wool.

Ok now you'll need to do a bit of exploring. Search bodies of water until you find a squid. Kill it and take its inksacs. Combine an inksac with 2 bits of bonemeal that you should have from the bones you collected earlier, and make a light grey dye. Combine it with some white wool to make Light grey wool.

You should now have 10 of the 16 wool colors needed for the achievement.

Unfortunately their are no easy ways around the next few colors, but you already have some of the resources needed, bonemeal, red dye etc.

A few tips for the remaining dyes:

Green Dye: You'll need to find a cactus and break it, then smelt them in a furnace to make cactus green dye. Cacti can be found in desert biomes.

Blue/Light Blue Dye: Mine lapis lazuli to create these, you'll need 1 piece of lapis combined with white wool to make blue wool, and 1 combined with bonemeal to create light blue dye, which then can be made into light blue wool.

Lapis can be found in the tutorial level at: x: 42 y: 18 z: -357.

Purple/Magenta Dye: You'll also need 2 pieces of lapis to combine with 2 red dyes, to create 2 purple dyes. You should still have some pink dye left from earlier, and you'll have to combine it with the second purple dye to make magenta dye. Then combine them both with white wool to make purple wool and magenta wool.

Brown Dye: You'll need Cocoa bean for this, they can be found in cocoa pods on trees all over in jungle biomes or in dungeon chests.

EDIT: Cocoa beans can be found in a chest in a dungeon right by the main spawn in the tutorial world at coordinates: X: -41 Y: 60 Z: 8
