Use a content control to change the fill color of a shape

I would like to use a Combo Box Content Control to give people a list of colors to choose from and then change the fill color on a circle in the document to whatever color they choose.  Colors are white, yellow, orange, red, and black.  I am able to make the Combo Box Content Control but I'm unsure of the rest.

I've worked in VBA but I usually find or record a macro to start with.  Can anyone give me a hand here or point me in the right direction?
