Converting an HTML template into a Wordpress theme is actually not that difficult. Its a lot of knowing where to copy and paste. But note that this is a simple overview of the process from HTML to WP.

In this tutorial I give you step by step instructions on converting one of my favorite HTML templates into a Wordpress theme. Here are the steps below:

- Select the HTML template you want to convert
- Obtain a barebones Wordpress template
- Install a fresh WP site locally or on a server
- Select the barebones theme
- Copy the HTML portions to the appropriate places in the Wordpress theme
- Enqueue CSS & JS files
- Make sure it works!

Obviously I left out some things but this is a simple overview of the process.
