You will need the screw-in base for the bulbs, the fixture and a wire with a plug. You can harvest most everything you need from an old lamp. Connect all like-colored wires (black to black, white to white). If you're using a switch, wire that in too. Only thing you should really be careful about is to not exceed the base's limit, but with 4W bulbs, I'm sure you'll be fine.

are they for 120vac? simply connect the center to one end of the outlet, the other to the other. Don't electricute yourself also, in what context?
