Well, the amount of Ohms of your resistor relies on the amount of voltage you will use, as well as the amount of voltage the LED can handle.

Well to make it easy for me, I buy a double AA battery holder. You need a battery clip with it, and then attach it to the LED accordingly. But just search google for "resistor values",so you can just put in the amount of voltage you have, the voltage the LED takes, and it gives you the resistor value you need to purchase.
