You would need experience in Photoshop or another image editing program
Other than that you will need the following:
* Windows Style Builder
* A bunch of time
* Patience to get all pieces of the theme done right

Or you could try this to start with, since WSB costs a bit of money, and this method is free (it does not have anywhere near the same possibilities tho)
