There are a lot of Gtk themes and Gnome-Shell themes here:

Install them in ~/.themes. If you don't have that directory, you need to create it before:

$ mkdir ~/.themes

Also there are a few themes packaged for Fedora. Try the following:

$ yum search gtk3-theme

$ yum search gnome-shell-theme

Look at the names in the list and install them with yum if you want to use them. For example:

$ sudo yum install zukitwo-gtk3-theme gnome-shell-theme-zukitwo

In all the cases, use gnome-tweak-tool to change the themes.

Install via yum does not work (Fedora 20) - the zukitwo theme does not show up in gnome-tweak-tool.

It works fine in my Fedora 20.

As I said in my answer, extract them in your ~/.themes folder.

same here. I have installed and uninstalled these themes in the main themes folder and in the /.themes folder and tweak-tool does not see them.
