3. Install Divi Handmade
Install Child Theme
Ensure you have the Divi Theme installed and activated prior to installing the child theme. Download the ‘divi-handmade-child-theme.zip’ file from your account. To avoid any issues during installation it is recommended that you use this child theme on a fresh installation of WordPress and Divi.
In your WordPress Dashboard, go to ‘Appearance>Themes>Add New’ and click on ‘Upload Theme’.
Browse and locate the ‘divi-handmade-child-theme.zip’ file on your computer and click ‘Install Now.’ When it is finished, click ‘Activate.’ You will now see Divi handmade as the active theme in your themes panel.

4. Customize Anything
Your site should now look like the demo at https://demos.peeayecreative.com/divi-handmade/, the only thing left to do is replace the text with your own and the placeholder images with your own images. You may now customize anything on the site including the logo, images, color schemes, fonts, layout, etc. Divi makes it super easy to do all of this, but some the styling you see is from the CSS file.
Changing Your Color Scheme
To edit the CSS, I recommend using Brackets. Copy the CSS from ‘Divi>Theme Options>Custom CSS’ and place it into a CSS document. From there, use ‘Edit>find and replace…’ to change your hex color values to match your brand. The rest of the colors are in Divi itself and can be changed easily within the builder.
