I took the logo and resized the longest dimension down to 16 pixels in GIMP, then created a new 16 by 16 pixel image and pasted it in.

It was necessary to delete the background and extend the layer size to the image size to get the desired effect of a transparent background. After that, just save the image as an .ico file and follow the instructions at the WordPress Codex.

It was necessary to include the line the codex page said to add into header.php.
