    1)LED (Red one)
    2)470 ohms resistor
    3)9V battery
    4)Push switch.

    If you want to do it in breadboard(a board where you can insert your component with soldering)
    1)Breadboard
    2)Some wires suitable for your breadboard

    If you want to do it in Veroboard.
    1)Veroboard
    2)25 to 30 watt soldering iron
    3)solder (use 60/40 rosin core)

    I dont think you want to make a PCB for this circuit...

    Good Luck

    Depends on what you mean start a circuit board. Here is an article I haven't finished yet.

    Prototyping Electronic Circuits

    If you ever want to make something really fancy (warning, this is the advanced method)...

    How I make PCBs

    The AAC book has a Volume devoted to this, see the link on top (Volume VI). It will cover tools and materials, techniques and projects. It is worth a read.
