Hex wrench of the appropriate size. Brake cables, housing (end caps and ferrules). Bar tape.

And some electrical tape to hold the new housings in place until you get the bar tape on and to wrap the ends of the bar tape to retain it.

And most of all you need Sheldon's web page about how to best wrap the bar tape.....

Or these....

Note that these were the first three returns when I googled for "bicycle bar tape wrapping".....
