In order to do this, we will use setStyleSheet() method.

Syntax :

label.setStyleSheet("border :5px solid ;"
                    "border-top-color : red; "
                    "border-left-color :pink;"
                    "border-right-color :yellow;"
                    "border-bottom-color : green")

Argument : It takes string as argument.

Action performed : It changes the color of each edge.

Code :

# importing the required libraries
from PyQt5.QtCore import * 
from PyQt5.QtGui import * 
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import * 
import sys
class Window(QMainWindow):
    def __init__(self):
        # set the title
        # setting  the geometry of window
        self.setGeometry(60, 60, 600, 400)
        # creating a label widget
        self.label_1 = QLabel(self)
        # moving position
        self.label_1.move(100, 100)
        # setting up the border
        self.label_1.setStyleSheet("border :5px solid blue;")
        # setting label text
        self.label_1.setText("Single colored")
        # resizing label
        self.label_1.resize(100, 50)
        # creating a label widget
        self.label_2 = QLabel(self)
        # moving position
        self.label_2.move(160, 170)
        # setting up the border and changing color of each edge
        self.label_2.setStyleSheet("border :5px solid ;"
                                   "border-top-color : red; "
                                   "border-left-color :pink;"
                                   "border-right-color :yellow;"
                                   "border-bottom-color : green")
        # setting label text
        self.label_2.setText("Multi colored")
        self.label_2.resize(100, 50)
        # show all the widgets
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
